How to create menu recipes to link between menu items and inventory items? How to use Inventory Entry?
Question: I have a coffee shop. I am struggling to adjust the recipe of the orders so it reflects real inventory numbers in the end of shift report.
For example "Cappuccino" recipe is 7 grams of Coffee and 150ml of Milk.
- Coffee: I buy the coffee in bags, each Bag is 1KG.
- Milk: I buy the milk in bottles, each Bottle is 900ml.
Based on the above, how to fill it in the inventory items and the menu recipe editor?

1.1. Add a menu item Cappuccino
Home Screen => Menu (5) => Menu Items Setup
- Add CAPPUCCINO.

2.2. Add an inventory item MilkHome Screen => More (6) => Inventory (9) => Inventory Items
