What's Your Public Site and How to Navigate Through It

Become familiar with your Public Site and keep track of how every detail you customize will look for your guests

This is the front-facing side of your Dine.Direct’s restaurant profile. It’s where your guests will read through your menu and place orders. In this article, we’ll give you an overview of the structure your Public Site will have.

Where can you access it?

View it any time by logging into your manage.dine.direct restaurant portal and clicking on Public Site on the sidebar to your left. You can always copy that link to send it to your clients, friends, or acquaintances.

Let the tour begin

  • Pro tip: Click on your A.I. Avatar and it will go into teacher mode and give your client a tour of the website.

When you open the site, you'll see something similar to this page:

  1. At the top, you’ll see your logo, your Avatar with its custom greeting message, and the delivery/pickup tabs. Learn how to change your Avatar messages here.
  2. Right below that, you’ll see the Choose delivery time bar where your clients can set the time of their preference using the drop-down list. Under it, you’ll find the estimated time of arrival for their order.

  3. Then you have the menu section:
    • First, you’ll see the dietary options filters, like vegetarian, pescatarian, gluten-free, sugar-free, etc.

    • Then you have the different menu categories. Use the drop-down arrows to expand each one and see the individual menu items.
  4. Scroll down and show your customers they can use the Add another guest button to have an idea of what each person's portion of the bill is going to be. It doesn't split the check or the tips, it shows the subtotal for each guest so if a nearby office is ordering delivery, they can know how much each person needs to pay back to the credit card owner. It's a way to make it easier to order for groups of people.
  5. Below that, you will find the Notes for the restaurant field where clients can make additional specifications or indicate allergies.
  6. Next, you’ll have the order totals, tipping options and at the very end, you’ll find the customer information fields for delivery or pickup.
  7. As you scroll down, you’ll see a floating banner to view your cart and proceed to check out. Your customers will use it when they’re ready to place their order!
