Create Your Products

Products are the ingredients used in a recipe. They could be anything from an individual bottle of soft drink sold to an ingredient, such as flour for a scone.

Products are created on the Menus page or under Stock > Products.

Click the Products tab then Add Product

Search for the producer and Product from our database by typing in the name in the Producer field first. A list of corresponding products will appear. 

If your Producer and product are there:

  • Select the product you’re after.
  • Enter in the cost price (exclusive of GST).
  • Press Save Ingredient.

Can’t locate the Producer or product?

Add the producer by typing the name in the Producer field then click the green field below to Add it

Double check your spelling and press the It looks Good button if correct. If you need to change it, press Ooops, that's not right.

Once the Producer is added, Type in the Product name and press the green field below to Add.
Please note: You should add in the Producer name again here, otherwise reporting won't be as effective.

Same deal as before with the spelling but this time you also need to add in the quantity. Select the measurement type using the drop down and add in the quantity/volume. Then Press It looks good! to save

You will then be returned to the Add Product screen with the fields completed. The final step is to add in your Cost Price (ex GST) and press Save Ingredient to add it to your Products list
