Silver Pro / Silver POS: Curbside Indicator Item Setup in POS


Audience:

Technical Teams, Account Managers, POS Administrators

Description of Issue:

There is a need to set up an "Item" in POS to allow communication from Olo that an order is for Curbside pickup. The consistent External ID must be communicated to your contact at Olo to complete configuration for Curbside. Without this item, there will be no notation of "Curbside" on your POS check even if a guest selects "Curbside" as their handoff mode.
 
Solution: 

In Silver Pro BO, set up an Item:

  • Navigate to Menu > Categories & Items
  • Choose the Category on the left panel that you want to add this item to.
    • Add Item using this button (top right)   mceclip1.png
  • Name the Item accordingly.
    • This will show on your guest check.
    • We recommend "Curbside Pickup".
  • Set routing if you want "Curbside Pickup" to print on your prep chits.
  • Specify Print Priority as a high number so this will print at the bottom of your checks/chits.
  • Make the Item available at POS.
  • This is an "Menu Item" type. Please flag that.
  • Specify an external ID for Olo to use to send this item to the check.
    • You can use the system generated ID or enter one yourself if you prefer.
  • Set Sales Price a 0.00.
  • Select appropriate No Tax for the Item.
  • Save
