Groups configured with 'inherited data' in Recipe and Menu Engineering can now use this 'inherited data' (recipes and menus) to populate a menu cycle. Previously only data in 'directly linked' sets could be accessed when selecting recipes and menus for a menu cycle.
Reason for the Change
Increased flexibility when configuring RME Groups for use with the Menu Cycles app.
All customers using the Menu Cycles app.
Release Note Info/Steps
Group creation steps and functionality in RME are unchanged.
When RME Groups are created, data sets (ingredient, recipe, menu, menu cycles) can be directly linked to the new Group or they can be 'inherited' from a Group higher in the Group hierarchy. Historically, 'inherited data' (recipes and menus) could not be used to populate a menu cycle within the Menu Cycles app. The change included in this release is that 'inherited data' can now be used when creating menu cycles in the Menu Cycles app.
Please note: the Menu Cycles app is the updated version of the legacy Menu Cycles functionality within RME's main application.
