The user will choose a template to be used to build a grocery order form (shopping list). Choices include either a daily order form or a weekly order form. Once the template has been chosen, the user must set up the order template by selecting school name, delivery dates, and vendor grocery items.
The user can view orders that have not yet been received. Each order is assigned a unique order number to enable rapid search or retrieval. Other information includes order date, delivery date and choice of all or a particular campus that has placed an order. The user can view current order status.
