Please Note: The Daily Meal Limit will be calculated using the Maximum Amount entered for all meal categories with the Daily Meal Limit checkbox enabled. 

Step 5: Click Save to save your changes; or, click Next to save your new expense category. When the meals categories are used, the amounts will be calculated against the daily meal limit. 

In this example, the Daily Meal Limit is $75.00:

  • The Breakfast maximum amount is $15.00
  • the Lunch maximum amount is $25.00
  • The Dinner maximum amount is $35.00
