- Select Edit Product and then tick the Scheduled Data Change option
- On the pop-up message that appears select OK

Scheduled Data Changes can be made to Menu Items as follows:
- In Enterprise, select the Menu Item option under the 'Menu Databank' section
- Select the Menu Item to be changed and then select Edit Menu Item
- As with Master Products, simply select the Scheduled Data Change option, enter the date the changes are to be applied on and make the required changes
The only difference with Menu Items is that, unlike with Master Products, the changes need to be updated to sites in order for them to apply.
- Go to the Edit Menu screen and select the Where Used tab
- Update the menu items to the sites where the changes are to be applied

- To approve these changes,use the Scheduled Data Change screen as with Master Products

If the Scheduled Site Changes section as shown in Fig.7 is blank, this means changes have not been updated to site(s). In this case changes need to be applied to sites before approving.
In both cases for Menu Items and Products please ensure the changes are approved before 14th July 2020, for the changes to apply on 15th July 2020.
If changes are not approved they will not be applied.
