New Limited Editor role

Many of you had asked for a role similar to that of Editor but with more restrictions. Today we launch the new Limited Editor role, whose only available permissions are:

  • Show or hide dishes and menus using the On/Off toggle (same as the one in the image that accompanies this post).
  • Configure the availability of the menus.

The ability to edit other aspects of the menu (prices, descriptions, etc.) will remain active in the other Editor role.

Create digital menus from Excel

From now on, you can create your digital menus faster and more efficiently by importing an Excel file. You just have to prepare your menu in Excel, upload the file, and our system will convert it into an advanced digital menu that you can customize to your liking.

Customizable QR codes

The latest update in NordQR brings important improvements related to QR codes. We have completely redesigned the QR Code section so that you can personalize and give a unique style to your restaurant's QR.
These are some of the options you will find:

  • Upper or lower frames with personalized text.
  • Logo inside the QR.
  • Customize the colors of all the elements (frame, QR and text).
  • Download the QR in three different formats: PDF, PNG and SVG
Remember that no matter how many changes you make, the URL of the QR will never change.

Custom URL

You can now customize the URL of your public NordQR page to make it more similar to the restaurant name.

This feature is currently only available for new accounts. We will soon enable it for all accounts.

Google reviews in your menus

You spoke, we listened. We know how important Google reviews are for your businesses and how useful it would be to see them on your menu. We’re thrilled to announce that starting today your NordQR menu can now be synced with your Google Business Profile.

Your customers will be able to:

  • See the Google reviews of your restaurant in the menu.
  • Write reviews on the menu that will be stored in the Google Business Profile of your establishment.

What does this mean for you:

  • More Google reviews from customers who view your menus.
  • Increase relevance in Google search results and stand out from the competition.

This Feature is only available for the Lite and Pro plans. If you do not have a Google Business Profile, you can create one for free on this page.‍

More visibility for reviews

With this design tweak, information related to ratings will have more visibility and presence (something very important for restaurants). From now on, customers will be able to see the average score as well as the number of views at a glance.

The rest of the information (location, map, wifi and social networks) will be accessible from another link located below the reviews.

Agility and Accessibility: NordQR's new updates for digital menus

To guarantee the speed, reliability and availability of the public menu, we have prepared some changes to our servers that will guarantee the following improvements:

  • Changes to the menus will be updated in the user's browser without the need to reload the page.
  • All information on the menus and Translations will be loaded when you scan the QR for the first time. Once loaded, the client will be able to navigate between the menus instantly regardless of their connection speed and even if they do not have one.
  • The menus will be hosted on a static server that further guarantees their availability (so far NordQR has had an uptime of 99.84%), in addition to improving loading speed by using the h3 protocol and being distributed globally in more than 600 locations.

Very useful to further customize the properties of your menus.

Billing page improvements

The billing section has received a long-awaited facelift. We've improved and simplified the flow for changing plans and canceling the subscription.

Copy a dish or category to another menu

Create menus from PDF files and images

Until now, all NordQR menus were created using the advanced Editor. While we still recommend this option for creating a menu, with the new functionality we just released it is also possible to create menus from PDFs and images. You just have to give the menu a name and upload the desired file. You should bear in mind that unlike the menus made with the NordQR Editor, this type of menu cannot be edited. You can only change its name and visibility.

Improved Stats page

The Stats section sports an improved graph. Stacked columns make it easy to scan data, and a simple overall metric shows total visits and the variance from the last period.

February 27, 2023

Download and print menus

Although Nordqr is designed to offer menus in digital format, some restaurants prefer to combine them with physical menus. With this new feature you can download your digital menus in PDF format and print them. To do so, you just have to select some parameters related to the appearance of the menu you want to print (theme, size and options) and download it.

February 23, 2023

Associate multiple restaurants to the same account

Many users have asked us for the possibility of associating more than one restaurant to the same email account. It hasn't been easy, but we've finally released this new feature.

From the user menu you can now change restaurants or add a new one without having to log out and log in again with a different email. You should keep in mind that each restaurant needs a plan (Basic, Lite or Pro).

February 5, 2023

Add members to your team

With this new feature you can now add members to your restaurant account and work as a team with them to manage the menus.

There are 3 types of members:

Owner. Full control over all NordQR features (menu editor, settings, stats, billing...).
Admin. Can do the same as the Owner except for operations related to the plan and billing of the account.
Editor. Can only edit menus and see the stats.

You must bear in mind that the number of users per restaurant depends on the contracted plan.

Pro plan. Up to 5 users.
Lite plan. Up to 2 users.
Basic plan. 1 user.

Extra info in the public page

This new function that we have just launched will allow you to add additional information without having to resort to the items on the menu. You can include directions on how to get there, a short description of the restaurant, information about allergens, etc.

December 11, 2022

Dark mode

If white isn't your thing, try the new dark interface. This theme is designed to reduce eye strain in low light environments. When choosing colors, we wanted to minimize eye strain and use colors closer to the system defaults on iPhone and Android.

  • Have a menu with more than 20 dishes.
  • Have a cover photo and the address of your restaurant.

Customize the menu icons

Many of you asked, so we have listened to you.

We've just added a new functionality to change the menu icons. You can select a variety of icons either from the menu page or from the Editor.

  • In the Menus page, click on the ... button and select "Change icon" option.
  • In the Editor page, click on the icon next to the title.

Public reviews

Until now, only Admins could see reviews left by customers. We have released a feature that will make these reviews visible in the Restaurant's public web. To activate it, find the toggle located in Settings / Public site and turn it on.

July 13, 2022

Revamped Navbar

The Navigation bar wasn't perfect, so we've redesigned it. The new one is more visual and in the mobile version it is located at the bottom of the page, so much more convenient when using thumbs.

June 27, 2022

Referrals are here!

We've just launched a  Referral program. As a NordQR user you can invite friends with your unique referral code.

How it works? When a friend signs up and subscribes for a paid plan, you both get 10€ in credit. You can invite as many friends as you want!

May 11, 2022

New URLs on all QR codes

We have changed the public URL of all NordQR menus. The reason is because most Xiaomi phones did not scan the QR correctly.

The previous URL was nordqr.app/xxx and the new URL is go.nordqr.com/xxx  

Does this update affect my older QR code prior to this update? Yes, all QR will point to the new url.

Do I need to replace my old QR code? No, we have programmed an automatic redirection and therefore you will not have to do anything about it.

May 8, 2022

Wi-Fi on the public page

We've rolled out a new feature to show the Wi-Fi network of your restaurant in your public page.

Go to Settings to set it up.

April 30, 2022

Autosave feature

It is no longer necessary to click "Publish" in order to see the changes in the menu. From now on, any changes made to the menu will be instantly synced.

Important! If you have a dish that is not yet ready to be published, just set its visibility to off (switch button).

March 25, 2022

Editor improvements

The way new dishes and sections were created in the menu editor was not perfect, so we've tweaked some details.

On this new update, at the bottom of each section there are two buttons. One for adding dishes and another one for adding categories.

March 22, 2022

QR improvements

We've rolled out a new feature to download the QR code in three different sizes:

  • Small: 105 x 49 mm.  
  • Medium: 210 x 99 mm.
  • Big: 297 x 210 mm.
