Select the user account responsible for managing the premises from the list and click "Generate key".
Click "Close". Integration with FoodSoft is active.
Go to the Boss panel in the FoodSoft system.

Press "OK" and wait for the system verification, "OK" messages confirming connection with the service and updating the data server will inform you of correct communication between the systems.
The discussed integration applies to the FoodSoft 5.1 version - if you have an earlier version, we recommend contacting a FoodSoft representative to update.
Integration of the Foodsoft menu with UpMenu
The important element of integration is the configuration of POS codes in both systems. Configure your menu by entering POS codes that will be identical in FoodSoft and UpMenu. You can also download zones set in the UpMenu and configure delivery times.
In the FoodSoft panel "Tools" → "External orders" → "UPMENU" → "Products" there is a menu with codes that should be rewritten to the menu in the UpMenu administration panel.
In the UpMenu panel, go to "Menu" → expand additional options and select "Manage POS Codes".
Empty fields for codes will appear next to each product - enter the POS codes set in the FoodSoft system for each item, taking into account different variants of the dishes. Thanks to this, you will link the menu in Boss FoodSoft with the menu in UpMenu.
Changes are saved automatically.
Additionally, you can download delivery zones entered in UpMenu and configure delivery times and set messages to be displayed after order confirmation. To do this, in the BOSS FoodSoft panel, go to the "Tools" → "External orders" tab.
