Location Settings: Edit

Learn how to edit your location settings.

Locations settings are broken into three different sections:

  • Edit Location Settings
  • Open Tabs Settings
  • Display Settings

Edit Settings:

Click on the "Location Configurations" dashboard and then click on the "Edit" dashboard. 


  • Ordering is turned: this indicates if your location allows ordering within all zones. If you need to turn on/off ordering altogether you would toggle this switch. 
  • Read Only Mode: Allows a location to be "read only" and not orderable. 
  • Help Button is turned: This displays a help button throughout the guest ordering flow. 
  • Catalog Browsing is turned: this toggle is useful for locations that utilize our "Menus" feature. Swaps viewing your menu as a product catalog to viewing between the different menus you have in play. 
  • Auto Re-Enable 86'd Products is turned: Allows you to decide if you want products to automatically enable themselves the following day after being 86'd or if you want to turn it off to manually enable products.
