Ingredient Management allows you to create ingredients and assign them to your main products. Assigning the ingredients in units required for the main product will also adjust the inventory of your ingredients accordingly.


1. CREATING A NEW INGREDIENT & MANAGING STOCK

On the QashierHQ Portal, go to Product Management and select Ingredient Management.

To create a new ingredient, select ADD INGREDIENT and input your ingredient name, quantity, unit of measurement and cost. Click CONFIRM after input.

To track ingredient, you can select an ingredient and you will be able to view the ingredient's stock history or perform a stock action:

  • Stock Received: Add stocks.

  • Damage/Loss/Theft: Deduct stocks if they are as indicated.

  • Restock Return: Any return of items from customers can be added back into stock here.

  • Reset to Number: If there are discrepancies in the stock number, you can reset it here.

  • Others (+ / -): For other reasons, you may add or deduct stocks and type in your reason/action detail here.

  • Set Alert Threshold: Define the Fall Below Threshold Alert (when it falls below the specified number, you can toggle on SHOW LOW STOCK INGREDIENT to view them).

On the same page, you can edit the ingredient name, unit and cost by clicking the pencil icon, or delete the ingredient by clicking the bin icon.

2. ASSIGNING INGREDIENTS TO YOUR PRODUCTS

For your ingredients to deduct automatically according to the sales of your main products, you'll have to first assign the ingredient to your product(s).

To assign ingredient to your products, select an ingredient and click ASSIGN INGREDIENT.

Then, select a main product from the product list.

Next, input the deduct ratio. Deduct ratio indicates the ingredient unit to be deducted when the product is purchased.

  • Select CONFIRM to assign the ingredient to the product.

  • Select UNASSIGN to remove the ingredient from the product.

Click ASSIGN button to assign main products to your ingredients.

Then, select an ingredient from the list.

Next, input the deduct ratio. Deduct ratio indicates the ingredient unit to be deducted when the product is purchased.
