Creating your first logbook template!
Available in: All subscription levels
If you are a new customer to Avero, the most popular first step is creating your logbook! If you are new to Avero you may not know exactly what you'd like to include, so this guide will show you the most popular choices our customers make in setting up a logbook template.
Step One - Create a new template
Click the gear icon in the top-right to open your Settings menu and select Logbook Setup.
Click Create New Template
First, give your template a Name - this can be the name of the business or outlet, 'Shift Notes,' or simply 'Logbook Template'.
Next, name your first Section - usually the top section is name 'Main' or something similar to indicate that it will show all the day's revenue and include notes that cover the whole day of business.
Set the Snapshot filters for this section to All, to show all revenue. Don't worry, if you want to track revenue for specific meal periods or revenue centers we will add that next.
Now add the fields you want. Most of our customers include a few text fields to cover the day's notes. Popular choices are Shift Notes, Employee Issues, 86/Low Stock, Maintenance Requests, and so on. See the process for adding these here:
Congrats! You can Save your first logbook template! For your restaurant, this may be all you need. If you want to add additional sections to separate revenue and notes, you can see how to do that below. Lots of our customers like to see Lunch and Dinner in their own sections or see the Bar broken out. Keep watching to see how!
Select Add Section to add another section, which will include another revenue Snapshot - set the meal period you want to track and add your fields! You can also add checkboxes to track tasks you expect the team to complete during their shift!
