The ability to search by Name, Brand, GTIN, or Manufacture Product ID of an item. Filter the search by Contract Items Only, Meal Component and by Branded Items or Generic Items; items such as Produce/Milk.


A list of products will be displayed if searching by Name or Brand, but one item may appear when searching by GTIN or Manufacture Product ID. From the list select the item you want to add, review the information, and select add in the top right-hand corner.

If an item is on a preconfigured contract or if the item is an Exclusive Brand, there will be a $ icon tag in the Notes column. A checkmark in the Notes column indicates that the item is already in the Local Database.

You can also, filter the list down Items on the contract by selecting. This can be done by checking the box that says Only Contact Items. Once you find the item you are looking for select the item and click add on the top right-hand corner. If the item added is on contract it automatically set the items up within that Vendor, if the item is not contracted it would go under an unspecified vendor and you can go in and add the Vendor, Product ID and price. 



Once added the item will now show in the local database, there you can make any necessary changes to the item. Please note that some Manufacture provided information will not be editable.
