jmc Office simplifies lunch account management by utilizing lunch contacts, but manually setting up lunch contacts for each student can be laborious and time-consuming. However, with the convenient feature introduced by jmc, you can easily initialize family lunch contacts by clicking the "Create Lunch Contact" button. This action will automatically generate a family lunch contact for students who do not have one, based on their primary contacts.

To assign a lunch contact for all your students at one time, go to Lunch > Data Setup > Initialize Family Lunch Accounts in jmc Office.

Step One: Click the "Create Lunch Contacts" button to assign a lunch contact to students who currently do not have one.

Fun Fact: If a student has multiple primary contacts listed, the first primary contact will be assigned as the lunch contact for that student. However, if a student does not have a designated primary contact, no lunch contact will be assigned to them.

Step Two: Click the "OK" button to create lunch contacts or click the "Cancel" button to return to the previous page.

Fun Fact: Upon completion, a message will be displayed indicating the number of Lunch contacts assigned, along with the names of the contacts assigned to each student.

Helpful Tip: Need to review or edit a student's lunch contact individually? Head to the View Student Data page and perform the steps for attaching a contact to a student.
