Dine In & Table number

You can use Appfront's platform to have a customer enter their table number, and bring the meal directly to their table, alleviating the need for a waiter.

Setup

In order to set up a dining option that will force a user to enter their table number you need to first mark "Ask for table code" in the setup section under Configure > Menu > Setup > Serving options:

Now, in the location settings, scroll down to "Dine in table code ranges" and enter the range which you want to enable a customer to select a table.

If you have more than one range you can enter them with commas, for example if you have 101-118 on the main floor, and 201-207 on the second floor, you can enter in that field:

101-118,201-207

Customer view

When a customer will select to dine in at that restaurant, they will have to enter the table number they are sitted at:

Printing on the receipt

The table number will be printed on the receipt:

Creating a deep link to print on each table

Your URL template will consist of the following fields:

  • Your website URL (for this example we will YOUR.RESTAURANT.COM

  • Location id (branchId) - the location of this table - can be found in the online ordering site as a URL parameter: "branchId=LOCATION_ID" please read more here: Create Link To Order From Specific Branch​

  • Table number (tableCode) - the table code you want to open.

This is the URL template you'll need to use:

https://YOUR.RESTAURANT.COM/order/?branchId=LOCATION_ID&servingOptionType=sitdown&tableCode=TABLE_CODE

For each link, please change:

  1. YOUR.RESTAURANT.COM

  2. LOCATION_ID

  3. TABLE_CODE

to the correct values

In order to set this up, you'll need to create a QR code for each table (using https://www.qrcode-monkey.com/)

For example, if we are building the qr code for Bierstadtlager, with the following values:

  1. YOUR.RESTAURANT.COM = bierstadtlager.appfront.ai

  2. LOCATION_ID = 5e77579e2f5d250e142de64a

  3. TABLE_CODE = 32

Switching these values will give us:

​https://bierstadtlager.appfront.ai/order/?branchId=5e77579e2f5d250e142de64a&servingOptionType=sitdown&tableCode=32​

You will be able to see the online ordering / app open directly in the dine in menu, with the table already chosen
