86 or temporarily remove items from your menu

What is 86'ing?

To 86 something means to temporarily remove it from your online ordering menu. This feature gives you the ability to disable an item(s) or modifier(s) on your menu for a specified period of time over a selected date range. If you run out of an item mid-shift, you can quickly 86 it to prevent customers from ordering something that you no longer have in stock. 

How to 86 menu items:
