What if the Product Name or Descriptions from my POS system don’t look menu friendly? Can I change the Name and Description?    

  • The best option is to change the Product Name and Product Description in your POS System providing that doesn’t impact your cash register receipt formatting.  If you cannot change these fields in your POS System then create two custom attributes in EngagePHD. Please see: How Do I Set Up Additional Attributes for Products.
  • When creating the custom attributes, you could call them; ‘Menu Friendly Name‘ and ‘Menu Friendly Description‘. You will then be able to map to these fields in your Layout and define whatever Name and Description you require.
