The functionality for updating menu items to sites has been updated. Two new security settings have been developed:
- Update PLU – Allows users to update a menu item’s PLU number.
- Update Sales Price – Allows users to update a menu item’s sales price.
These settings replaces the previous security option ‘Update PLU’ that allowed users to carry out both actions if they were assigned full access.
For users who had full access to the replaced ‘Update PLU’ setting, they will have full access to both these settings by default.
Release Date: 26-Feb-2014
Reason for the Change
The change was carried out to give administrators greater control of the updating of menu items. It will allow separate groups of users to work on menu items.
All Inventory customers with the Stock Module enabled. The change also affects customers who use Recipe & Menu Engineering (formally StarChef)/Master Data to update Inventory.
