Staff Lunch Balances

Staff Lunch Balances

Our plugin uses Core PowerSchool lunch balances. The way it works in core is that each staff gets a lunch balance for each school. To help mitigate this , the cafe attempts to put all the transactions ot the staff in their home school but if they have already had balances previously (before starting to use the MBA Cafe plugin) they will already have balances in each school. You can then need to clean those up manually (if you want). You can edit the balance fields through DDE or switch the homeschools around temporarily to make deposits go to the correct place.
