HOW TO CREATE QR CODE MENUS FOR YOUR TABLES
The purpose is that the "Table Number" will appear in the order on check out so you know what table to bring the food to the customer to. This is generated by passing the ID or table number to a querystring when generating QR Codes.
If you do not do this then you can create a generic QR code but it will not display the table on check out.
OPTION 1 - DO IT WITHIN THE APP ITSELF
You do this by clicking settings, then "Dine-In" then fill out the forms within the app. However if you are getting "Red" message that says your app is out of date then this often means that you are using an older iPad that is no longer supported with QR Codes.
This is because the new Samsung Pay and Apple Pay Requires NFC Chip/Readers which earlier iPad models do not have.
So you can purchase a new iPad and install the app on that or you can the following work around to generate a QR Code manually.
OPTION 2 - GENERATE IT MANUALLY
You will need to create your own QR codes where you can add to the end of the url “&table_number=ABC123” and the value will be prefilled in the ordering widget at checkout.
Example URL For QR Code
You can use the attached file where you will need to add the RUID and you can modify the Table number column to your own values:
Then access the QR code generator: https://qrexplore.com/generate/ and copy all the links generated in the Final URL column and paste them in the QR Code(s) box and then expand the “Configurable Options” and check the box next to “Add filename to image”, and then click on the button “Generate X Codes”. This will generate a QR Code which you can scan with your phone.
To test it the QR Code will open a URL that you created and if you passed in all values correctly it will load your menu and display the correct table on the check screen.
You can take this QR code and add it to the table any area in your restaurant and when customers scan it it will auto load the menu ssystem and apply the passed in table number to the check out.
