Syncing products between Baker and your point of sale or a third-party menu source makes menu management simple. Instead of worrying about updating Baker and your external menu, you can use the external menu as the source of truth and let the integration handle the rest. Occasionally, though, you may want to make updates directly within your Baker Menu. There are a few things to keep in mind when editing synced products directly in Baker.
Update Pricing via Override Pricing on Sync
Looking to change prices on products directly within Baker? If so, you'll want to set the Override pricing on sync field to off. When it's off, the purple check will no longer show; it will be replaced with a red X. You can find Override pricing on sync under your SYNC OPTIONS area of your Baker Menu. (For more info on SYNC OPTIONS, check out this article.)
Once Override pricing on sync is turned off, you can edit the products that requiring pricing updates. To do this, hit the Edit Item button.
You can then update the pricing for any unit/weight that you'd like directly within Baker. Once the pricing looks as you'd like it to, be sure to hit the turquoise SAVE! button to update the product.
Add Images Directly in Baker
Certain menu integrations do not allow for images to transfer from the menu source into Baker's Menu. If you find yourself in this situation, don't sweat it; you can add images directly in your Kitchen.
Head to the Menu page and hit the Edit Item button for the product you're adding an image to. We teach you how to add images in our article called How to Create and Edit a Baker Menu. After opening that article up, search for IMAGE OPTIONS to see how adding images works.
If you are able to see the individual product sync button within your Baker Menu, don't worry about wiping out the image(s) you've uploaded. Hitting Sync item on an individual product or using the purple refresh button to manually sync your entire product list will not wipe out images on an integration that does not support product photos in the first place.
It is very important to note, however, that if your integration does support photos there's no need to add them directly into Baker. Doing so is at it's core a pointless task; upon the next automatic sync all images added directly into Baker's Menu will be wiped and replaced by images in the source of truth.
Update Descriptions in Baker
Adding descriptions within your Menu is just like adding images. If your integration does not support transferring descriptions from the original menu source to Baker, you can hit the Edit Item button to add them manually.
Like images, though, you need to be sure that your integration does not support a product description sync. If so, any manual updates you make in Baker's Menu will be wiped upon the next automatic sync.
