Parents can't see or make Meal Menu choices

Parents and guardians might not be able to select which meal their child is going to have. Follow the troubleshooting steps below to resolve this. 

Permissions

You'll need the Meals: Administer All Students permission to set up meal menus. If you don't have the permission, you'll need to ask your admin team to give you permission using these instructions.

 

Step 1 - Check you have the Meal Menus feature

Rotating Meal Menus are only available in our Payments Plus package. If you'd like to upgrade, or for more information on Payments Plus, please contact your Account Manager at accountmanagers@arbor-education.com

Step 2 - Check the Parent Portal availability dates

If a meal isn't marked as available, it won't be visible on the Parent Portal or Arbor App.

Go to School > Meals > Setup and select Meal menus. Select the meal, then check the Availability Dates are current.

Step 2 - Check the students attending the meal

If a meal isn't available for a student, it won't be visible on the Parent Portal or Arbor App.

Go to School > Meals > Setup and select Attendees and either:

  • Click on the Automatic Group Attendees tab, and add the student's registration form.
  • Click into the Students Without regular Meal Patterns tab and click on the individual student to give them a pattern.
