How to Run the Kitchen Report

To run the Kitchen Report, follow these steps: 

  1. At the Home Page, click on the ‘Reports’ tab, ‘All Folders’ on the left side, and click on ‘Thynk Reports’.

  2. Find the ‘Kitchen Report’ and click on it to run it. If you don’t see it, please contact your Thynk Admin. 

  3. As in all standard reports, this report will run based on preset filters, in this case: 

    • All BEO dates

    • Date range: for Next week

    • Booking Close Reason:  shows definite bookings only (confirmed not equal to Lost, Canceled, Refused) 

  1. You can export the report by clicking on the down arrow on the top right next to the ‘Edit’ button, and click on ‘Export’ and walk through the next few windows.

  1. You can also add it to your dashboard by clicking on the same right arrow and click on ‘Add to Dashboard’, and follow the instructions. 

  1. As in all other reports, you can edit the dates if needed.  Refer to the Knowledge Base article: How to Edit Report and Dashboards

Information Displayed on the Report 


  1. The top part of the report will show you summary information.  You will see products in the first column, (sorted alphabetically). You can change the sort order by clicking on the column header.

  2. The next column shows by date (for next week, as in the standard filters) the number of agreed guests.  

  3. Each column represents each date for the week.

  4. The last column is the ‘Total’, which gives you the total number of those products. In this example, you will need to plan on 239 total crackers & cheese products for the week.

  5. The bottom row on the Summary section is a total of all products by date for the week. 

  1. The bottom half of the report, in the ‘Details’ section, you will see each booking event for the BEO Dates selected.  

  1. The rows across show the number of ‘Agreed Guests’, the ‘Company Name’ (account name), the ‘Name’ is the booking name, the ‘Booking Product’ is the name of the product, the start and end times of the event.  So in this example, you can see that the ‘cheese w/crackers’ are for 150 guests for ‘Corporate Weekend Retreat-Bushwood Resort’ booking and the event is held between 3 and 3.15 pm. 

  2. As always, you can click into any of the links in blue, so you can open the account, or the booking event, or the booking product by clicking onto them.
