Mobile Ordering Configuration - Office
Enable Area for Mobile Ordering
Club Admins have full access to configure the mobile ordering experience for their members within the Clubessential Office software (CMA) via the Areas setup.

Minutes after start time before first pickup - Enter the minutes after a location opens that the first pick-up time would be available. For instance, if an area opened at 9:00am, and the first pick-up time you wanted to be available was 9:30, enter 30 minutes here.
Pick Up Interval - This field determines how many times show in the available Pickup time for the order. If set at 5 minutes, available times will be 9:30, 9:35, 9:40, etc. If set at 15 minutes, available times will be 9:30, 9:45, 10:00, etc.
Server Employee - This will be the Employee responsible for the Mobile Orders. Choose an available employee from the list.
Please Note: Best practice is to create an account solely for this purpose.
Terminal Device - Set to the appropriate device that employees will sign in to view the Mobile Ordering tickets.

Days Available - Check the days of the week this menu will be available for ordering. If not checked, menu will not appear on that day.
Minutes before Pickup Time - This setting determines how soon before an order is to be picked up, that it will fire to the kitchen. For instance, if an order is placed at 11:20am, to be picked up at Noon, and this setting is set to 15 minutes, the order will auto-fire to the kitchen at 11:45am, 15 minutes before the time it is to be picked up.

Q: We are not equipped to provide delivery services at our Club. How can I prevent Members from choosing the delivery option?
A: Ensure the setting marked Allow Delivery to Member location is not checked in the Area’s mobile ordering setup screen.
Q: How can I ensure Members are not able to select a time for pickup for the first 30 minutes after an area opens?
A: Ensure the Minutes after start time before first pickup field is set to 30 in the Area’s mobile ordering Setup screen. If Area opens at 11:00am, and this setting is 30, first available pickup time would be 11:30am.
Q: How can I ensure tickets fire to the kitchen appropriately (based on pickup time)?
A: Ensure the Minutes before pickup to send field is set to the appropriate time period desired in the Menu setup screen. If order is set for pick-up at 11:30am, and menu takes 15 minutes to prepare, set Minutes before pickup to send field to 15 to ensure ticket prints to kitchen at 11:15am for appropriate prep time.
Q: Can my mobile ordering menu differ from my regular menus for the area?
A: Yes, mobile ordering menus may be customized to include different items and/or fewer items than the Area’s normal menu. Additionally, Items on the Menu may have custom names (overriding the default Item Name).
Q: How long does it take for changes I make to setup/configuration (menus, etc) to show up in Mobile Ordering?
A: The time it takes for changes in Office to show up in the cloud (whether in mobile POS or mobile ordering) depends upon the Sync Frequency setting in Office. If you run CMA and click System -> System Settings -> Web Site -> Office Cloud, above the endpoint listing you'll see a text box that says Sync Frequency. This is how often, in minutes, changes in Office are pushed to the cloud. Additional delay due to caching expiration could add an additional minute to the sync time designated in the previous setting. Therefore, if in Office Sync Frequency is set to 5, changes in Office to mobile menu configuration will show up in the cloud in, at most, six minutes.
Q: What if I am in a different time zone than my Club, but want to place an order for later that day?
A: The menu start/end times and the pickup times you are allowed to choose are all based upon the timezone of the club, not your current local timezone. If you go to order food from your phone and you're standing in an Eastern time zone, but the club's CMA instance is set to the Pacific time zone, then the times you are allowed to pick from will be using a Pacific time zone.
When creating Menus, add items that typically take approximately the same amount of time to prepare for smoother operation.
Ensure Member information is up to date within the back Office software to allow for a smooth and accurate order process for the member.
Clearly define all item descriptions, menu areas/locations, hours of operation, and settings.
Host an mobile ordering kick-off event to encourage Members to place their first order.
Track usage to validate your ROI.
Assign a ‘dummy’ or placeholder Employee Account to the mobile ordering system, that way no one employee is responsible for all orders.
