Form types

There are currently six types of form in Kitchen Manager including three new forms, Grid, Event and Transport. You can configure them so they require actions and sign-off, as well as automatically emailing them to managers:

  • Standard – the basic form lets you add a variety of question types
  • Fridge temp - allows fridge temperatures to be recorded with a time and date stamp
  • Auto-summarise - enables the user to sign-off multiple forms at the same time; the exported form automatically adds figures
  • Grid - enables you to create daily/weekly food checks or shift work data
  • Event - enables you add and edit a wide range of event types including hospitality and non-school meal income
  • Transport - lets the Production and Dining Centres record and sign off food supplies and deliveries on a single form

NOTE: When a format change is made to a form in the Kitchen Manager it will not change the format of archived forms.
