Pre modifiers give a restaurant the ability to add text either before or after a modifier, and are a standard feature of POS systems. When you create a modifier group, you can create a set of pre modifiers like NO, SUB, or ADD.
Create Pre Modifier Options:
The first step is to create pre modifier groups and options. To begin, navigate to the Menu section of Toast's back-end and select Pre Modifiers.
Begin creating pre modifier groups by selecting the + button. Then, type the group name. In the below example we've added "Sandwich Mods." Be sure to save your changes.
After you have saved the pre modifier group name, a [Click Here to Define] option appears. Select it to add pre modifier oprions.
Select + Add Pre / Post Modifier to add pre modifier options.
Each of the properties of pre modifiers are as follows:
Name: Name as it will appear on the check for the customer (ex. spell out 'on side' instead of abbreviated 'OS')
Multiply Price: Whether or not you want to multiply the price. (ex. multiply NO by 0 so it doesn't cost anything)
Fixed Price: Fixed price for each pre modifier option (ex. all extras $0.50)
Multiplication Factor: How much to multiply the cost of the option (ex. multiply NO by 0)
Display Mode: Whether the pre modifier should be before or after the modifier. (ex. prefix ADD Bacon and suffix Bacon ON SIDE)
Color: Button color on the device
POS Name: Name as it will appear on the POS, can have different name and POS name
Kitchen: Name as it will appear on the printed kitchen tickets or the kitchen display screens
Assign Premodifiers to Modifier Groups:
After creating pre modifier groups and options, the next step is to assign them to modifier groups. Navigate to the modifier group you'd like to add the pre modifier group to. Scroll down to the ‘Properties’ section and select the group you've just created from the Pre Modifier Group section.
If you do not see the pre modifier group you're looking for, make sure that you're editing a modifier group, not a menu group or an item.
