How to Set Up and Use Dining Options

Whether you accept orders for dine-in, takeout or delivery (or else), Alto’s POS & Inventory is here to help you sort them out.

To set up dining options:

  1. First, go to Back Office > Settings > Features and toggle the Dining options switch on and tap Save.
  1. Once you save the changes, the Dining options item appears under the Settings menu.
  2. The most common dine in, takeout and delivery options come by default in Alto’s.
  1. You can use these options as they are, or you can edit their names as you wish by tapping on them. Don’t forget to save your changes.
  1. To add a new option, tap the (+) button.
