What are the Stock Item Table header categories for? (Stock View)

The Stock Items Table displays all the immediate data that you will need to easily identify what each item is, who the supplier is, how much you have in stock, how much it costs to buy more stock and how much you get per pack, unit or volume.
In this example, you’re using the Stock Tables to see how much and what type of canned stock items you have at a site before creating or re-using existing recipes to use up excess stock.

The Table is broken down into collapsible Super Category [1] tables (i.e. Beans, Legumes & Seeds), in each Super Category table there are Categories [2] (i.e Beans, Legumes, Nuts, Seeds, etc.) and if required Sub Categories [3], for example; Dairy Super Category has a Cheese Category, this can have two sub categories: Soft Cheese and Hard Cheese).


The Table for each Super Category displays the following data:


  1. Code: Each stock item must have an individual Code/ID
  2. Stock Item: Description of the stock item (up to 30 characters)
  3. Pack Contents: 6x850g – there are 6 units in a pack, each weighing 850 grams
  4. Quantity: The quantity held on stock at the last stock take
  5. Price: The price for a full pack or kg if the item is priced in kg
  6. Priced By: The choices are Pack or kg. Item priced by pack can only be purchased in whole packs. Split packs have to be set up as separate items
