Comments off Email Reminder for Messages of Type “Task”

And while daily Users can be reminded of open tasks constantly by the Notification function, those who only use the Web Client occasionally and for limited tasks are at greater risk of ignoring them for a longer period of time. …especially when they are on time!

Comments off Menu Plan Print Enhancement

Print several weeks with page break per week   Are you spending a lot of time printing Menu Plans? Businesses usually create their Menu Plans for a specific period - often a business quarter - well in advance. This means for example that for one quarter the Menu Plan Cycle contains 12-14 weeks.

Comments off Improved Layout Options for Item and Unit Overview

Flexible column width for a perfect overview   How you can make the most of our result grids? The answer is easy: Optimum legibility with customizable layout. In previous versions Item and Unit names were only displayed in part because of static column widths in the result grids. Users had to hover the mouse pointer directly over the item or unit in order to be able to read the full text. This was inconvenient in particular when long specifications were contained in these columns. We now enhanced the layout and the complete texts will be visible at a glance. Column widths can now accommodate the full Item and Unit names in: ✓ Ordering✓ Receiving✓ Assortment Management✓ Item Catalogs (Price Quotes)✓...

Comments off Enhancement for handling of Patient Discharges in Meal Ordering

News from Version 15.10 A new logic has been implemented to provide a more granular handling of Patient Meal Orders on the day of Patient discharge.

For Patients whose discharge time is before the new cut-off time, Tray Cards, Kitchen Lists and Container Label Print will be suppressed when printing for that day. Delegate now introduces an improved Patient display logic in Patient Meal Ordering, Mobile Meal Ordering and in delivery documents. It can be applied for cases where it is important to correctly consider Cut-Off time 3 for the Meal Time in question. In Patient...
