    1. To edit an existing category just click the line and change the status name as needed.
    2. To add a new status click the top (blank) line and type it in then tap Enter (on your keyboard) until a new blank line appears.
    3. If you are reimbursed for this category (which typically is the case) make sure there is a check mark in the Reimbursable column.
  2. Use the Up & Down arrows to change their order as needed then click Save > Exit.
    Age Groups: If you’re a System Supervisor you’ll also want to configure Age Groups used to track meals served. This is done through the Regions & Schools Options screen.
