Jenny -- any chance we can check out your on-line sign up system for meals?

We also have a pretty slick online meals sign-up system that, for the record, I was vehemently opposed to, but which I have grown very accustomed to using. The online system replaced a handwritten notebook, and I liked having to go into the CH to sign up for meals because it forced me to go to the CH more often. However, this way I can sign up for dinner (or check to see if I'm signed up for dinner, or find out what's for dinner next Tuesday, or un-sign up for dinner) while I'm at work!

We track menus, assignments, meal signups, billing etc. all online
(and have a
list of our five upcoming meals at ) and have 2
billers who collect and deposit monthly checks, make reimbursements to
answer questions about bills and make changes and corrections (if you
allowed to sign up late for a meal etc.). The billers get 2.5 hours of
credit per month.

Do people have to sign up for meals or does it just average out?

Thanks for the great post -- I'm particularly interested in the
allocation of work hours.
