Nutritics Tutorials – Menu Creation & Display

This video will show you how to create menus from
foods and recipes in Nutritics It will also demonstrate how these menus can be used
to make digital interactive display boards, as well as allergen and calorie summary reports… To get started, click the my Menus tab in the explorer
folder You can then either create a new menu or make a
new group for storing multiple menus in a menu cycle I’ll just make a single menu for now, as I can
reorganise this later… There are a number of ways items can be added to
your menus The most familiar will be to search for an item, and
click the ‘insert button’ to add it to the menu It can also be helpful to use the groups filter to find
meals and foods quickly Multiple items can be added at once by dragging a
folder group onto the menu workspace Another way to add items is to expand a recipe or food
group in the workspace, by clicking on it Then its just a simple drag and drop to add that item
to your menu This method gives you finer control and insights into
what is being added to your menus as you can customise the display to monitor cost,
allergens, nutrition and more, as you go In the same way, when you have finished adding items
to your menu open it to review and customise the parameters on
display This enables you to run analyses on the total menu,
for example, production costs or waste… and you can even estimate portion requirements from
the predicted popularity of the dish This is discussed in more detail in a separate menu
cycle and waste management video The layout of the workspace can be changed to a table
view by clicking the toggle at the bottom right of the
screen Either of the views can be exported for printing or
sharing Once satisfied that all items have been added to your
menu… an allergen and calorie report can be generated from
the ‘Paper’ button at the top of the screen This displays all calories and allergens on your menu
in one simple report for printing or sharing Clicking the ‘Digital’ button will take you to the digital
menu screen
