CONFIGURING YOUR REPORT

Once your Catering data for a calendar month is complete you can export it from SIMS for import into the Cascade Catering Tracker+ system.

Begin by logging into SIMS and go to:

Reports > Dinner Money > Statistics > Dinner Numbers by Week

In the screen that appears put the Start date as "01/09/2021" (or the first date in the current academic year) and leave the end date as the default which will be today's date. In the 'Group Type' dropdown select Year Groups and click Continue.

CHOOSING YOUR EXPORT OPTIONS

In the next screen select Output raw XML under the layout options and Output to a file under the output options. Click the ellipsis button to specify where you want to save your file and the name you want to call it. Please name the file your school name for easy recognition upon import.

 

All that's left to do now is click Save followed by Ok which will then output the file to your chosen location and with the desired name.
