Category / Item Notes


Category in this section refers to Meal Categories; Item refers to specific Food Items. Short text notes are used to add additional information as to how a particular item or group of foods is to be served to a resident. Category and item notes appear within the body of the menu on the tray tickets. Item notes appear directly below the specific food item and any category notes selected in the resident's profile appears directly below any menu item in that category.

This setup form allows you to Add, Edit, and Delete the category/item notes that are available within the resident profiles. Any note not included on the list can also be created from the individual resident's profile when actually adding an item or category note.

You can also purge the list of un-used notes and turn the tally option (to print as separate item on production sheet) on and off by checking or un-checking that option.
