Classification Codes, Working with Event Meal Choices

Return To The Knowledge Base

Event meal choices are considered a classification code. Argenta comes loaded with common event meal choices to help you get started, but you can change them at any time. You can add or delete any event meal choice by selecting Classification Codes from the Argenta main menu on the left hand side of the screen.


This will bring you into the full listing of all customizable classification codes that are within Argenta. From here you will choose "Event Meal Choices."



This will bring you into the full listing of your event meal choices. Next you will choose "Add New."




This will open a screen for you to add a new event meal choice.




Choose a name for your meal choice and click "Add This Classification Code" to add this new choice to your list.


View The Total Number Of Records
Above the list is a records total that displays the total of all items currently displayed in the list. This is a quick and easy way to count list items.

Search The List
All classification code lists can be searched by the code’s title. Enter the title of the code you are looking for into the search field to search the list.

Export The List To Excel
Argenta contains many reports, charts, graphs, and statements, but it may be necessary to manipulate your own data. You can work with your data anyway you want by exporting it to Excel. Every List in Argenta has an “Export To Excel” button above the list. Clicking the button exports the data currently displayed in the list to Microsoft Excel. If you have filtered the data by specific criteria, only the result set will be exported.

To Remove A Category/Type

In the event meal choice list, click the corresponding “Delete” button to remove an event meal choice from Argenta. Event meal choices that are already in use cannot be deleted. You will receive an alert indicating that you cannot delete the meal choice because it has been used to classify an event meal. If you still want to delete it, you can find the event meal associated with it by filtering the event meal list, reclassifying all associated event meals, then trying again to delete it.
