Stock Template View - Table header categories explained

The Template 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 it costs to buy more stock and how much you get per pack, unit, or volume.
In this example, the user is using the Stock Tables to see what type of canned stock items are in stock before creating a recipe and menu.

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).
