Parent Selection – Displaying custom labels

Admin users can configure Menu Category labels so that meals in the Parent Selection applications are grouped by Menu Category labels.

When Menu Item Labels are configured, menu categories are displayed based on the Menu Item Label e.g. Salad Bar (Main). If a menu item does not have a Label, the menu type will be displayed as a category (e.g. Main).

Menu Type categories should be displayed in the following order:

  • Main: Custom Categories of Main Menu Type in alphabetical order ascending
  • Vegetables: Custom Categories of Vegetables Menu Type in alphabetical order ascending
  • Dessert: Custom Categories of Dessert Menu Type in alphabetical order ascending

NOTE Drink and Other Menu Types are not displayed on the parent portal
