The Cook Area Assignment report provides details on the cook area that each product is to be assigned to within the Logwood KMS solution.
This report is also used to assign cook areas to products. To do this, you need Update rights to this report within your user role. (If you don't have Update rights, Click Here.)
For companies with multiple sites, the report is specific to the site that you’re logged in to.
The report cannot be saved or scheduled, but you can export the report to PDF. Unlike other reports in the system, as the Cook Area Assignment report is specific to the Logwood KMS solution, the CSV export is exported in the PLU.DAT file format allowing you to upload directly onto the KMS to assign cook areas.
Access the Cook Area Assignment report via: Reports & Analysis > Data > Cook Area Assignment.
Select the required report parameter options from:
Select which product groups to include. If left blank, all groups will be included.
Select a product family to return only items within that product family.
For multi-merchant companies only, select which merchant to return products for. If left blank, products from all merchants will be included.
The Cook Area report is a table containing three columns, displaying:
|Displays the KMS product name, or if the product does not have a KMS product name, the standard product name is shown.
Displays the cook area that the product is assigned to, if applicable. The cook area can be changed in this column, if applicable.
|Enable this option if the product shown should always be treated as a PLU in the KMS solution, and never as a product instruction / modifier.
