In July, we released a flurry of new features in our order taking app, published a new video on setting up delivery zones and using heatmaps, and showcased a memorable success story on our blog. Let’s take a closer look at the latest GloriaFood updates!
New Order Taking App Features
You can now pause selected services straight from the order taking app by going to Options -> Pause services, as shown in the image below:
You can choose to pause specific services, or you can pause all your services at the same time, by selecting “Opening hours.” Services can be paused until the end of the day or for a set period of time.
In the “Notification message” field, you can also add a reason why you’re pausing the services. This message will be displayed in the ordering widget for your customers to see.
To resume your operations, click the Unpause button straight from the app.
Out of Stock
You can now also mark menu items and choices & addons as out of stock, straight from the order-taking app.
Just go to the new section called “Availability,” and select menu items or choices & addons. Tap on the item you want to mark as out of stock and select the preferred option: until tomorrow, until a preferred date, or undetermined.
Then, the item will show up as out of stock, like this:
To mark it as available again, tap on the item once and select the “Available” option.
Here’s what you need to keep in mind about the out of stock feature:
- Items that you marked as out of stock, whether in the order-taking app or in Admin, will feature the ‘Out of Stock’ label
- Any out-of-stock change is immediately reflected in the Admin and vice-versa
- Food customers will see items marked as out-of-stock with the ‘Sold out’ label in the ordering widget
Reason for Rejecting an Order
You can now share the reason behind rejecting an order with your food customers. Choose between the pre-defined reasons we provide or type in your own custom message.
Food customers will get notified that their order has been rejected via the ordering widget & via email, and they will see your reason as such:
