The Fractional Modifier Quantities feature enables order takers at the POS to adjust the serving quantity of modifiers.

Fractional quantities are printed on the kitchen ticket and displayed in the preparation instructions to ensure the kitchen staff prepares the product ingredients in accordance with the customer's request.

The following describes the behavior of the Ordering application when the Allow Modifier Quantities to Change toggle is set to On for a modifier record:

  • Select the "+" or "-" rocker on the modifier button to increment or decrement (respectively) the modifier quantity by the Increment Modifier Quantity by value, except for the following case:

    • If Increment Modifier Quantity by is set to 1, and the current modifier quantity is fractional, select "-" to decrement the quantity to the closest lesser integer (2¾→2). Select "+" to increment the quantity to the closest greater integer (2¾→3).

  • If Increment Modifier Quantity by is set to 1, long press the modifier button to open a popup menu that contains fractional quantity options. Select a fraction from the popup to adjust the current modifier quantity by that fractional amount. The available fractions are determined by the Secondary Increment value (described below). If Increment Modifier Quantity by is <1, the popup does not contain fraction buttons.

The following setting is only available when "1" is selected from the Increment Modifier Quantity by drop-down menu.

  • Secondary Increment - Select the desired value from the dropdown menu. The selected value determines the fractional quantity buttons that are available for selection by the order taker on the modifier popup menu.
