The Cafeteria Menu allows staff to inform on the current and future food offerings from one or several cafeterias.
The web part includes a selection of templates that informs users on either the daily or weekly menu with image, description, and nutrition or other additional information.
By clicking the date navigation buttons in the top of the web part, users can browse through the menu offerings of the current week.
The menu is presented to users based on the location set in the user profile in AD.
However, from the picker in the bottom right part of the web part, this can be changed by the end user who can make the web part display menus from other cafeterias in the organization.
Clicking the information icon displays a description about the selected cafeteria.
A printer-friendly version of the menu is available from the web part for editors, or all users if enabled by administrators.
Cafeteria personnel, (or other staff group or users with the assigned editor rights to a cafeteria menu), can easily create and add a menu directly from the web part.
Administrators can add and manage cafeteria menus and assign different editors to them, keeping the menus consistent for users in all locations of your business.

If no match is found, a random cafeteria is selected, and the user must change the cafeteria selection if necessary.
In the Editors section, add the user(s) or user group(s) to whom you wish to provide editor rights. These users/user groups will be allowed to create and change menus in this cafeteria.
The text entered for Description will be shown when the user clicks the information-icon in the web part displaying the menu from this cafeteria.
The Cafeteria Menu module includes a selection of pre-defined templates.
