How Do I Set Up Additional Attributes for Dietary Icons (Spreadsheet Integration)

When using Spreadsheet Integration to create your menu Product inventory, dietary icons can be displayed on your menu by setting up Additional Attributes for each icon. When set up correct, dietary icons can be enabled/disabled from either the product spreadsheet or editing the Product Detail directly from the Products Library. The steps below will walk through creating Icon Attributes for your Products.

You will need to have the latest dietary icons in PNG format before creating Icon Attributes in EngagePHD.

It recommended that the icon files are created at 50×50 pixels and PNG format.
