Below are the reasons why a Pre-Order may have been deleted:

Admin Menu change

Pre-orders made by students and parents are deleted when the Admin makes any menu changes to the Menus Items, Menus, or Templates.

Menu assigned to student

Pre-orders are deleted when a Menu template is applied to a student to meet their Allergy or Dietary requirements. All pre-orders, bar the one for the day the menu is applied, are deleted and recorded in Menus Analysis. Refer to, Students - Special Menu templates for allergy and non-allergy students.

Mass removal by Teacher

The teacher can now delete an entire class's meal pre-selections, all at the same time, to avoid the Kitchen/Caterers making meals for students who will not be in school for the day. Refer to, Mass removal of student pre-selections.

Specifying the Number of Portions when Exporting

  1. Navigate to Menus > Recipies.
  2. Select the Relevant Menu Item [1].
