The manual orders feature allows your restaurant to create a record of every order fulfilled, including ones that customers call in for or submit through other non-integrated avenues (Phone Calls, Text Messages, etc.). Having a record of every order allows restaurant ownership and staff to get a full picture of sales across channels, helping you make the best decisions for your business. 

  1. To create a manual order, tap the “+” icon in the top right corner.

  3. If your store has a menu set up inside Otter, select the menu items the customer ordered, as well as any additional customizations. If you don’t have a menu set up, reach out to our support team in the live chat to learn more. You can still create manual orders without a menu.

  5. Once you’ve added the menu items, select the fulfillment method (customer pickup or delivery), and tap “Add order details.”
