User groups

User configuration

Users that should be able to order meals have to be assigned to the created new user group.

Furthermore it is possible to configure a price category and a firm for each user. For that the "Mealprofile" Lunchbox plugin have to be installed. The plugin can be downloaded free of charge with the customer login from the download section on the WERI-Design GbR website.




If there are multiple users of a specific firm, please note that the spelling of the firm have to be the same for all users.
