Sdk Android 2.6



1. New integration – Maven repository
2. Menus by Day Parts
3. Open Directly Menu
4. Pickup Time Selection
5. Dynamic Wait Time
6. Quick re-order

1. New integration process based on Maven repository

  • speeding up the build time
  • easier integration process (no copy-pasting directories)
  • easier build process (on both sides)
  • access control (using private repository) – read technical documentation

2. Menus by Day Parts

  • the feature allows to create different menus at different time
  • depending on your settings, various items show up in the menu at different hour
  • for example – you want to have new menus: breakfast menu that is available from 7am to 10:30am and lunch menu available from 11:00am to 1:00pm
  • In Connect, you decide which items will be sold as breakfast and which as lunch items by creating “Day Part” and assigning certain items to that time range

Steps in Connect: 
example: I want my item – “ApplePie” to be sold only at breakfast between 9:00 – 11:00am.

STEP 1. Open Connect > Options > Day Parts and click the blue CREATE button -> “Add Day Part” page opens

STEP 2. Choose Day Part Repetition using “Repeat Button”

and as a result – how my sample configuration looks like:

STEP 3. Add Day Parts to Items
-> don’t forget to assign selected item(s) to Day Parts so as they are shown at the defined time
-> Go to: Items > (choose the item you want) > Availability > Create > Availability opens > Choose “Day Part” and pick the previously created set (here that’ll be “Breakfast”).

Note! Items > Availability page has some additional settings:
“Start Date”
“End Date”
“Always Available”
If those fields (Start,End,Always…) are filled in, Day Parts will be ignored.
Start Date & End Date have priority over Always Available.

After completing steps 1-3 see the result in the app:
(remember that my breakfast menu is set from 9am – 11am)

1. “Breakfast” DayPart is over – no ApplePie for sale

2. “Breakfast” DayPart is active – ApplePie is for sale

3. Open Directly Menu

The feature changes UI in the following way:

  • open SDK -> what you see immediately after opening the app is menu of the chosen restaurant
  • Venues and Vendors view is blockedTo set the menu of a restaurant as the first thing user sees, you need to use Color Configurator (Connect):STEP 1. Open Color Configurator here: 2. Go to Venue Identifier
    STEP 3. The below section – Vendor Identifier show a list of available Vendors. Choose one of them
    STEP 4. Scroll to the bottom of the list and confirm with SUBMIT button.
    STEP 5. Open the app (remember to use the same API key)

    Result: The first thing you see after opening the app is the menu of the chosen Vendor – here that’s “Tallme”

4. Pickup Time Selection

  • it offers the ability to order food for later on the current day
  • for instance, a client wants to place a lunch order and pickup the food at 11:30 am (and he can do it  earlier, i.e., at 10am)
  • this is just placing orders for a short-term completion like 60 minutes. It’s not for the next day/week

How to configure Pickup Time Selection:

STEP1: Pickup Time Selection flag in Connect needs to be enabled.

STEP 2. Then, Wait Time on Vendor Role needs to be defined.

STEP 3. Vendor Open Hours – needs to be set (! required only when Venue is Campus)

Result in the app: 
The special button will be displayed in the cart next to “Edit Cart”. It’s called “Pickup time” and may display: “None” or the selected pickup time.

If it shows “None” -> 2 possibilities:
a) no pickup time chosen
b) ASAP pickup time chosen

How Pickup Time is counted? 
Pickup Time is calculated using two parameters (open_hours) *for Campus Venues  only and (wait_time) in this way:

So, in case when user selects pickup time that is outside the range of open hours + wait time value = the “ OK” button will be blocked from UI.

And see how it looks in the app:
-> add some items to the cart
-> when you want to choose different pickup time, tap “Pickup time” button
-> choose ASAP when you want your pickup time to be immediate
(result: button shows “None” time)
-> use the time picker and select hour and then minute(s)

-> Confirm with “OK” button and see the result displayed in Pickup time button view

to edit “Pickup time” just tap the button again.

5. Dynamic Wait Time

  • the feature changes the expected Wait Time displayed for a Vendor
  • since the feature is not based on push notifications, the Wait Time will changes only when you manually refresh Vendors view

How to change Wait Time?
I want to change my WaitTime from 2min to 20min.

 STEP1: Go to Connect > Options > Vendor Role and click the correct VRole
STEP2: Save the action. Click the “pencil” in top-right corner. It’ll show 2 actions


6. Quick re-order

  • the feature allows to order same items as in the past order
  • order that you want to repeat needs to be finalized, so it is not possible to use quick re-order from Current Orders view in the app
  • in case when some items are not available, the price has changed etc…Connect checks all of that and sends info back to SDK
  • quick re-order can be accessed only from Past Orders menu
  • you can even re-order items that were refundedQuick Order in simple steps:
    STEP 1: Open the app and go to Past Orders
    -> browse through the orders till you see the one you want to order again
    STEP 2: Click the order you want to repeat

STEP3: Click “Order again” button
RESULT: You’re redirected to the cart view. Same items’re added

1. If the price of an item changes, there will be no alert shown. The changed price of an item will be visible in the cart. 

2. If some items were removed, you’ll see the alert message.


SDK Android 2.5

Imagine you sit in your comfy dorm, dreaming of a delicious meal delivered to your front door. Here you go – SDK Campuses.
Campuses – that’s the new, key SDK feature. The app is designed for students so that they can use it at selected higher education campuses and have their orders delivered to dormitories, as well as make quick pickup orders.

But let’s get to what’s new:
1. Left Menu
2. Registering Account
3. Adding Payment Methods
3.1 Adding Campus Card
4. Ordering Flow
4.1 Editing Cart
4.2 Checkout
5. Location Filter
6. Filters for Vendors
7. List/Map View
7.1 Map View
8. Restaurant details
9. Opening hours
10. Item Categories

1. Left Menu


  1. Tap to log in / register.
    ** Unlogged users can make orders and pay for the items too.
  2. Tap to open Venues / Campuses.
  3. Beacon Payments – for logged in users only.
  4. Recent Orders – for logged in users only. Browse through current and past orders.



2. Account Configuration


Note! If you’re registered and logged in, the app stores the info on your CC/DC so there’s no need to enter card numbers manually every time at checkout.

3. Adding Payment Methods

SDK users can rely on two payment methods: CC/DC and Campus Cards. The below screen shows you how to add card. Adding Campus Card is slightly different than/from adding CC (point 3.1).

You can modify your CC/DC/Campus Card info anytime you want. Just go back to the screen with Payment Methods. Tap the card you want to modify, enter some changes and select the green ”Modify”button to confirm. There is no possibility to delete the card.

3.1 Adding Campus Card

Tap Add New -> and then tap edit_post__appetize_release_notes_-_wordpress


SDK has a nice feature that verifies the card number and indicates your CC issuer.  


4. Ordering Flow

Tap Appetize from the Left Menu and then -> tap Campuses (step 1)


First, you add some items to the cart and then, you decide on Delivery / Pickup.
a) If the restaurant allows for Pickup only, the above step is skipped, and Pickup is chosen.
b) If the restaurant allows for Delivery, then a screen with Delivery options shows up. The screen also prompts the user to enter full delivery address.

4.1 Editing Cart


At this point, you can still Update your Cart, add/change the quantity of items, or Cancel.

4.2 Checkout

Tap Checkout in the left bottom corner. (Cart View). Checkout procedure depends on the chosen delivery mode.


Delivery: User is prompted to choose the correct dormitory and enter the room number. Then, a list with the assigned Cards will show up. Choose the one you want to use (CC/DC/ Campus Card assigned for that Campus) and tap Authorize Payment.

Pickup: ordering works in the same way as delivery with one exception. There are no screens with dormitories / room number. Confirmation screen shows the time you need to wait for your order.
