In UpMenu you can create additional sections in the menu. They allow you to simplify the creation of product promotions for customers. You can also use them to create additions to products in the menu.
Create additional section
See how to create an additional category by using the "Create additional section" button.
Suppose we want to create an additional section "Vege Burgers" that will later be used to create promotions or modifier.
Go to "Menu".
Expand the options and select "Create additional section".
Enter the section name "Vege Burgers" and select "Save".
The section has been created.
Edit the first veggie burger you want to add to the created section.
Expand "Advanced Settings" and select the newly created category "Vege Burgers" in the "Additional sections" field.
Repeat for all veggie burgers.
From now on, you can use an additional "Vege Burgers" section to efficiently set promotions for selected products or to create additions to orders.
Use of an additional section in the promotion
Check how to add products to the promotion using the previously created additional section.
Let's assume that you want to introduce the promotion "Choose a salad 50% cheaper with the veggie burger you ordered". Create a new section using the "Create additional section" button, according to the instructions from the movie "Create additional section".
Go to "Marketing" → "Discounts".
Create a "New Discount".
Fill in the form - enter, among others name of the discount, eg. "Salads -50%" and description.

Expand the options and select "New condition".
Add the "Section" condition, enter the quantity "1", then select the "Vege Burgers" section and "Save" form.
Expand the options and select "New reward".
Select the "Section discount" type, enter the quantity "1", select the "by percentage" discount type and enter amount "50", and in "Section" choose "Salads".
Click on "New promotion".
Fill in the "Name", eg. "Salad -50%", "Description" and "Choose discounts".
The promotion is active. When placing an order for a vegetarian burger, your customers can choose a salad -50% cheaper.
Use of an additional section to adding modifier to menu items
You can use the "Create additional section" button to easily create proposed additions to products.
Suppose you add veggie burgers to the newly created category to show up as suggested additions when ordering salads. Create a new section using the "Create additional section" button, according to the instructions from the movie "Create additional section".
Go to "Menu".
Expand the options of first salad and select "Add modifier".
Complete the form by entering the name eg. "Still hungry? Order one of our delicious Vege Burgers". Then select the source of modifier "Vege burgers".
