If you need to make changes to your menu on a large scale, you can use the 'Batch Edit' feature on talech.com. This can be helpful when you need to complete the following actions for multiple products at once:
- Change the Product Category.
- Edit Product Name, Cost, Price, Item Number, Barcodes, and Product Quantity.
- Delete multiple products at once.
This article will guide you through all of these actions. To start, select 'Products' at the top of the screen, then select the 'Batch Edit' button as seen below in the top right corner.
Note: When you are finished editing products, make sure to refresh the menu on your iPad to see the changes. This can be done simply by logging out and back into the store or tapping the reload button located in 'Back Office' > 'Menu'.
Changing the Product Category Location
Once you have selected the batch edit button you will notice that the Category field is now a drop down list. When you click the category next to the products name you will be able to assign it a new Category. So if you need to move multiple products at once, you can make the changes on this screen all at one time.
Make sure you hit save when you are done!
Editing Product name, Cost, Price, Item Number, Barcodes, and Product Quantity
After clicking the pencil icon, each row now has fields opened up for editing. This can be useful if you are changing the prices, adding item numbers and so on for multiple products. When you're finished making changes, click the 'Save' button.
Deleting Multiple Products at Once
Note the empty boxes to the left of the product. These can be toggled to select the entire product at once. When selected, they have a checkmark in the box and the entire row turns blue, just like below.
Once the desired products are selected, press the red trashcan button in the top right corner. It will ask for confirmation of the deletion to verify.
Note: If you are deleting all products, press the top empty box next to where it says "Category." This will select all products in the selected category, including products that are on the second page.
