Have you ever run out of a menu item that appears in several dishes? Or a soft drink that you offer across your menu? Bulk hiding menu items with Flipdish lets you easily hide an item from your online menu without deleting the item details, and you can make these items visible again at any time.

This functionality is really useful when you need to prevent orders for a given item, even in your busiest trading hours. Bulk hide or show all instances of that item as they appear in your menu.

Try out this feature today. Here are some reasons why you’ll find it beneficial:

Saves you time

Picture a really busy period at your restaurant and all of a sudden you run out of a vinaigrette salad dressing that appears on multiple salads.

With the bulk hide/show menu items feature, you can save time by hiding this item in multiple places at once. And you can get back to your busy restaurant in an instant.

Happier customers

With the bulk hide menu detaure, customers will no longer be disappointed with a cancellation or change to their order and you can simply show this item again when back in stock.
