To use Catering, you'll need first to decide who should be notified when a visitor places an order. You can set any employee as a Catering contact over in the 'Catering' page located in the 'Settings' view.

Catering contacts receive notifications when a visitor signs in and selects an item from the Catering menu. To add an existing employee as a Catering contact, search for them in the search field and select them.

The selected employee will now show to the right of the page with a card containing their employee details. 

You can also create a General contact, for an email address that isn't associated with a particular employee, such as or

To do so, click 'Enter general contact' details, then enter an email address and/or phone number and click 'Add'.

Host receives order

If you don't have a dedicated contact who should receive all Catering orders, you can check the 'Host receives order' checkbox.

When this setting is enabled, the visitor notification the host gets when a visitor signs in will include the Catering order, instead of any Catering contacts. You should use this setting if your employees are preparing refreshments for their visitors.
