Variable Meal Pricing by Year

Meal prices are currently defined in Menus Items, Kitchen Manager Sites and Payments Admin. All these prices are defined per Student Type e.g. Nursery, Student, etc. 

With the introduction of Meal prices by year group, prices will be defined at two more levels, the price priority is given in following hierarchy:

  1. Year pricing set against Menu Items
  2. Type pricing set against Menu Items
  3. Year pricing set against a Site
  4. Type pricing set against a Site
  5. Year pricing set against Payments Admin
  6. Type pricing set against the Payments Admin


Year/Type pricing set against a Site

Go to Kitchen Manager > Sites > select a site > Edit Sites window > Meal prices tab [1] > Set pricing by year [2] checkbox

If the Set pricing by year [2] checkbox is not ticked the pricing by year table will not be visible on the Meal prices tab and you will only be able to use the Type Table [3] to set variable meal prices by Type.

If the Year or Type table price columns for the Main meal, Desert, Drink and Light Lunch are left as 0.00 the meal price will default to the Year or Type pricing set in Menu Items.

When you have filled in the pricing by year table click Save [4].
