In some cases you want to label specific items with a tag that provides additional information. For example: "Vegan", "Gluten-Free", "Popular". This allows your customers to quickly build their menu, such as customers with allergies or dietary preferences.
Allow Customers to Discover by Tags
Sometimes categories are not enough to browse your menu. For example customers want to find all Vegan dishes of yours. In this case you could create a "Vegan" category, but what happens if these items are part of different categories already? In this case you would want to tag all these items "Vegan" and allow customers to search easily for these items by the tag.
How To Add Tags to an Item
You add item tags by adding a custom attribute to an item in your Square Dashboard with a specific structure. Follow these instructions:
Log in to your Square Dashboard
Click the Catalog > for the item you wish to add your tags - click the edit button to see the popup.
Go to the "Add custom attribute" section and add a custom attribute (Text type) with the name "orda-tags" and value the list of tags separated by a comma (,). For example: "Vegan, Dairy free". This will create two tags "Vegan" and "Dairy free"
Add Custom Attribute
You can select the color of the tags and add tags that show in the filter search by setting it up in the Tags Marketplace. Follow these steps:
Go to your Orda Admin - https://dashboard.getorda.com
Select "Marketplace" > " Search and Custom Tags".
Add all items and colors for each tag like this.
