The issue: A school district wanted to give the ability to alert their cashiers when a student went through the line and had a low balance.
The fix: The school district was not using the Allergens feature in Meals Plus, so Region 1 created a ‘Low Balance’ allergen and assigns it automatically to a student when they qualify as having a low balance. In this school district’s case, full paid students with a balance below $5.00. They also turned off the option that Cashiers MUST confirm allergens in the Control File screen, so the popup message would not slow down the lunch line.
Please contact Anthony, if your district is interested in using this as well!
