After many hours of collaboration and development, our refreshed client portal has launched! It's one of our latest efforts in our continual quest to deliver the best-possible user experience and make our system easy to use.
Users will notice changes throughout the portal, starting with the simplified navigation and redesigned landing pages. The fly-out menus, which we used quite extensively for our lunch menus previously, have been nearly eliminated.
We added pertinent information that could easily have been missed by clients who log into the system on autopilot. It's now where we'll highlight one of our newest resources and where clients can find a feed of our latest blog posts and "Food News" headlines.
Now you can access all K-12 NSLP lunch menus from a single landing page, whether for 4-day, 5-day or 7-day programs or varying age groups. They're also segmented based on planned vegetables or fruit and vegetable bar. How simple is that!?
Once you click on your desired age group menu, you'll be taken to the menu pages. These look a little different too -- and include some helpful shortcuts not previously available. Click on the links at the top or bottom of the page to quickly jump to your desired block of 5 menu weeks. No more scrolling the length of the page to get to later weeks. This will come particularly in handy when we launch our full 30-week menu rotation this August.
By clicking on the photo of the individual menu day, you can easily access the recipes for the day. Recipes are scaled to a meal count of 100 but if you want to easily scale the recipes to your specific student population, tap into our handy new CookBook. All the weekly reports, including posters featuring color images of the actual meal, are accessible by clicking on the "downloads" button for the menu week.
We've moved all our helpful tools into the "Toolbox" on the navigation menu. Here you'll find DataBites, the Promotional Calendar Creator, the CookBook, the Digitally Editable FPR, Market Baskets and the USDA Commodity Calculator. Everything you need to streamline many of your administrative tasks!
