One-off meal opening/closing
e-Res allows you to configure your meals for the same days every week so you can, for example, set dinner to only be available on Tuesday to Saturday.
However, there will be times when you want to close off one of those evenings, or possibly open up a Sunday or Monday dinner for one-off dates.
We can easily do this within e-Res using the “Meal Exceptions” function – see the steps below to see how we open up a Sunday evening when the restaurant would normally be closed.
Select the “Closures & Exceptions” tab at the top of the screen and then clock on the “Meal Exceptions” button.
On the “Meal Exceptions” screen which opens up, select “Dinner” from the left-hand meal list.
Right click on the date we want to add the exception for.
Here we have right-clicked on Sunday 14th April (when the restaurant is usually closed).
On the menu which appears, click on the “Make Meal Available” option. This will then add a green tick to the date on the calendar.
Click on the close button and return to the main e-Res screen
The “Dinner” meal will now be open to take bookings on Sunday 14th April.
