How to create and apply Break and Breakfast menus

Users can create 3 different types of Menus on Cypad; Break, Breakfast and Lunch.

Please note:
To allow break selections to be made in the whiteboard, please ensure you select the “Enable break pre-selection” checkbox in Cypad > Settings > Site info > Whiteboard.

Breakfast and Break items (unless created as a dessert) can only be ordered on the Whiteboard or in Cypad Transactions after the 3pm sync. It isn't possible for parents/staff members to pre-order on School Gateway.
