Currently, I'm working on a location-based service app specialized for food. A restaurant owner can add the restaurant's opening hours in a convenient way. Also, the owner can add the restaurant's menu.
Here comes the problem: when adding a menu item, the owner can enter the serving times, the period during which that item is served.
The first question: Do you think I should capture the serving times for each menu item? The restaurant's opening hours are already listed, and serving times could confuse a customer looking at this restaurant's menu.
The second question: How should a restaurant owner add the serving times? Right now I have a time-input field in which a user can enter from an hour, and to an hour, and that is expandable for 3 of these items.
Sorry if the question is a little vague. It relates to user experience.
By clicking plus button another time interval will be added. (max intervals count is 3)
filling at least one serving hour is mandatory till now,what's your suggestion, should I remove it totally since I have asked restaurant's owner opening hour once or ask to give serving hours of a meal in another way? Tnx
