Mapping Bucket Special
Some establishments have a bucket of beer/beverages special that they like to sell. These can be entered from your POS system and synced up into the Bevager platform. From there you can see the data generated from depletions to gain more of an overview of your inventory.
Things to check first
Make sure the individual beers/beverages exist in your inventory.
Some POS integrations supply us modifier information, while others don't. Feel free to reach out to our Support Team, via phone or email to see what data your POS provides us. If your POS integration does not support modifier mapping, set up each bucket type (ex: Corona Bucket vs. Bud Light) as individual POS items rather than modifiers (POS Item: Bucket > POS Modifier: Corona) as detailed below.
Create a bucket and ice as an item in your inventory.
(this will come into play as your base item in the recipe)
- Items & Vendors -> Items -> +Create New Item
Create a recipe for the bucket special.
- Recipes -> Recipes -> +New Recipe
Include the word 'Bucket' in the recipe name.
Create the base item as the bucket & ice.
- The RU size will be a total fluid oz of all bottles in the bucket.
In this example we offer 5 beers in the bucket (5 X 12 = 60) this can be adjusted as needed for how many bottles you include in your bucket.
*note* The bucket and ice must be labeled as a base item so we can add the modifiers to it later.
The bucket and ice will also need to be listed as a zero dollar amount for the PU Price. This ensures the data associated with the bucket sales is only pulling from the Inventory Items.
Ensure the individual beers/beverages have been created in your inventory and mapped to your POS system. This can be confirmed by going to:
Point of Sale -> Point of Sale Item Mapping -> Searching for the beer or beverage name. If it is labelled as 'unmatched', it will need to be categorized appropriately. Click on the item name and select the appropriate group then recipe from the drop down menu.
- Add a modifier for each beer/beverage that will be included in the bucket.
Point of Sale -> Modifiers -> +New Modifier
Type the Modifier Name and link it to the appropriate Modifier (as it is listed in your POS system) from the drop down menu
Then click +New Modifier.
Things to keep in mind
- The items included in your bucket (beers/flavored beverages) must be created before creating the recipe.
The bucket and ice must be labeled as the base ingredient in the recipe so it can be modified by the beers/flavored beverages later from your POS system.
