If using WISK Restaurant, you can create allergens in your venue and add them as tags at the item level. When items with allergens are added to Batches or POS Items, you’ll be able to see all of the allergens in the recipe.

In this article, we’ll go over:

Creating Allergens

To create an allergen:

1. On the “Items” page of the WISK Web Portal, click “Actions”, then “Manage Allergens”

The actions button is highlighted and an arrow points to the "Manage Allergens" option in the drop down menu.

2. Click “Add allergen”

An arrow points to the "Add allergen" button.

3. Enter the name of the allergen in the “Title” field and click “OK”.

"Wheat" has been entered in the title field and an arrow points to the "OK" button.
