Categorizing Menu Items
Before categorizing your menu item in nimbus, you should have a clear idea about the kind of food items you want to offer and how you would like to categorize them. For example, you may divide your menu into beverages, fast food, desserts, etc.
Once you have decided upon the menu categories, you can create these categories in Nimbus. Just follow the steps listed below:
Go to the Department screen: Configuration>Department
Note: we will define various departments to represent each category.
The department Records tab will open up
Note: If you have created a new account, the grid on the record tab will be empty.
If you are using the trial version, the grid will show some pre-defined departments
To define a new department, click the New button
In the Department Name field, enter the name of the category
The Radio Button Standard is selected by default for the restaurant version. Keep it selected.
