Selecting products by using tags is excellent for businesses that want to create products with modifiers, or for building gift basket / custom kits to sell. They can also be used for setting up combos with various choices. For example, you can have a sandwich combo with chips and a drink.
*Note: Before setting up sub-products for selection by using tags, you will need to have the products created and tagged. Please visit our Creating Product Manual Page additional information.
Setting up sub-products for selection by tags
Navigate to the products screen by going to Inventory > Products. Select the product you would like to add the sub-products too. When you have made your selection, click on the Edit button. Inside the product screen, you will notice the Sub-Products box towards the bottom right. Click on the arrow on the right on the title bar to expand it. Click on the +Add button, you will see a small drop-down menu. Select the option for Add tag for selection.
You will now see a pop-up box allowing you to add the tag. Once you have made your selection, click on the add button.
You can also configure your sub-products. You can choose various quantities, the validity dates, and its default price.
Using the quantity field, you can choose how many times a tagged item can be added. For example, if you have the quantity set to zero (0), you can add it as many times as you want. When you’re done, you will need to hit the “ready” button. If you specify number in the quantity, that will automatically set the quantity of the selected tagged product to the specified quantity. So, if you had a Tag for “double” it would have a quantity of (2) specified, and then any selection made under that tag menu would be added as a sub product with a quantity of 2.
You can also choose to change the price per add-on. You can globally set up a price for all the sub-products under that field. That way anything selected under that would cost the same. It would also work the same way if you set that same field to 0. You can also elect to have no price for that group, Korona will then pull the price from that individual sub-product.
Finally, you can choose how you would like for the sub-product information to be displayed on the receipt with the Sub item Presentation Field. You can choose to have all the information hidden if desired. You can choose to only hide the prices. This works great if you just want customers to see what they’ve added to their product. This also works great for custom made sandwiches.
You also have the option to hide quantities. Also great for sandwiches, for when you wish to add more than one helping of banana peppers.
Finally, you can choose to have all the information displayed on the receipt. This is great if you not only want to show what the customer paid for that particular add-on but if they ordered two helping of it as well.
Once you have finished adding your sub-products to your product, click on the Save button towards the top of the screen.
Now, whenever you ring up that product it will allow you to have various add-ons/options, and charge appropriately.
Example Product with sub-products selected by tags
A great example of how tagged sub-products are used as add-ons for a sandwich. We have created a sandwich In the back office, we gave it two sub-products from tags, dressing, and vegetables.
When the cashier goes to ring up the customer’s order for the sandwich, they will select it on the terminal. Instead of being taken back to the main screen, they can now select the vegetables they would like to add to their sandwich.
Once we have made your vegetable selection click “done”. After we have added the dressings, click on “ready” From there, we can complete the order.
You will see on the receipt that the main product shows with the sub-products listed below it in a smaller font. Notice that we’ve hidden the price and quantity from the receipt. We did this by selecting “hide price” in the Sub-item Presentation drop-down menu in the Sub-Products box in the back office.
