How to add new items when you are POS integrated

Kerry Updated by Kerry

If you are integrating your POS system with your Manage Mr Yum platform, you will need to enter the item's product code when adding new items. Alternatively, you can update your existing item with the correct product code.

Your POS system will not register orders of items without a product code.

How to add product code for menu items

  1. Go to Your Menu > Menu Items.
  2. Click into the category you want to add an item in — e.g. it will be called Main Menu if you only have one category — or refer to Structuring your menu - creating categories, sections & items to create a new category.
  3. Click an existing item or refer to Structuring your menu - creating categories, sections & items to create a new item.
  4. In the Item Information, enter your item's product code in the POS ID field. In the example, replace "xxx" with your item's product code.
  5. Click Update or Create if it is a new item.

Your product codes are available through your POS system. Refer to POS Integrations for a guide on how to find your product codes.

Modifiers, known as variants or options by some POS systems, also require a product code. Some POS systems will sync modifier product codes directly to your Manage Mr Yum platform, saving you valuable time!

If your POS system syncs with your Manage Mr Yum platform, new modifiers should be added through your POS system.

How to sync modifier product codes

  1. Go to Your Menu > Modifiers.
  2. Click Sync Modifiers.

However, if your POS system does not sync with your Manage Mr Yum platform, you will need to enter your modifier product code manually.

How to add product codes for modifiers

  1. Go to Your Menu > Modifiers.
  2. Click on one of your modifiers or refer to Creating and managing modifiers to create a new modifier.
  3. Enter your product code in External POS ID or External POS group ID if it's part of a group.
  4. Click Update or Create if it's a new modifier.
