1. If you’ve already reviewed your menu on the portal, tap I Already Reviewed It.
2. If you haven’t reviewed it yet or don’t know what that means, tap Review My Menu.
3. If you need to review your menu, you’ll find all your categories listed on the left-hand side of the screen.
4. Tap a category to view all the items in that category at once.
