Menu Mains is designed to be very flexible with the amount of menu items you have. When you have too much content, it will 'flow' off the bottom of the slide and not be seen.

If this happens, you should reduce summary content to fit more items in, like this...

Menu Flexi (Bubbles) - a 'fallback' for when there is just too much text to practically accommodate. Dietary Labels are prioritized over the Summary for space, an ellipsis will display if the end of the summary cannot fit comfortably.

e.g. To exclude Wednesday, enter: Mon,Tue,Thu,Fri,Sat,Sun

e.g. Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Category tab

Category  Add one category per row. This value should be copied to your Menu tab exactly as its entered here. This will group your menu items according. The categories will also be used as the menu section heading in the slide and appear in the same order as they appear in the spreadsheet.
e.g. Mains, or All Desserts $7
Position 

Left or Right options (to match design). Use these to re-position your menu categories in the slide.

 

Left - The design/space allows for written content from all Menu Columns

 

Right - The design/space is limited to only written content from the Title and Price Columns. The Image Column can also be used.

DietaryLabel tab

Label  Add one label per row. You can abbreviate or show the full name e.g. Dairy Free or DF. Labels will display in the same order as the rows in the spreadsheet, regardless of the order they appear in the Menu Tab.
Colour Pre-set colours have been added. Please change to your own HEX colours if desired.

Promo tab

This Tab is for when you have a promotion. Such as "Celebrating Christmas Week", where your menu may feature Christmas theme. you may wish to add an appropriate image and Caption to support the theme.

Adding content within this tab will override item images (i.e. only promo images will show and loop).

Image The file format will depend on your data management option (SharePoint, File Upload or Google Sheets). See 'Data Entry Tips' for more details
Image Caption Short text caption of the promotion you are running. Ideal 2-5 words. Content will cut-off after about 10 words.

Start Set a start time for each day part. e.g. 7.00am
End Set an end time for each day part. e.g. 10.00am

Tips

  • All fields a general 'Text' fields. If you are having issues with seeing 'patchy' data. Ensure all fields are 'Text' or 'General'
  • Is there a maximum number of menus items? What will show in screen is dependent on how many items you have overall on any given day. The slide is designed to not show an error, but if you have too many items that contain lengthy Titles, Summaries and a lot of Dietary labels, you may find that some will not show, or will be cut off the bottom of the screen.
  • Use a Slide/spreadsheet per café within your organisation. You will need to create a new Slide and spreadsheet for each café.
  • The slide will auto-refresh every 1 minute to remove items that are not available in the current time. However, this behaviour is only more useful for spreadsheet items than for web portal items. This is because:
    • When using a Spreadsheet - items will be loaded to the slide, and the slide will use the Day and Timeslot columns to control items' visibility.
    • When using the Vibe Web Portal - the server will control items' visibility via date, time and repeat fields, so only some items will be loaded on the slide at a time. When the player syncs (every 5 minutes) and gets a new update from the server, the player will reload the slide with new items.
