The Forecastable Items tab is where you can add the items you're interested in seeing on your final prep sheets.

Select the category, click "+ Add Forecastable Item", name the item, and add the units you use most often for this item.


POS Items Tab

In the POS Items tab, you'll find a list of all the items that are already in your system. We've pulled them directly from your POS, so there might be some old items in there as well. This is where you will map the items you wish to be forecasted onto the POS items. 

Make sure to add the items you'd like forecasted to all the POS items they are used in, and add the measurements in the units you chose in the last tab.

When you add an item to your report, you'll have to fill in the shelf life and lead time for the item. You'll be able to choose things like how often you want to prep the item and whether you want the report to use different units.

In this tab you'll be able to build new/manage existing reports. Use "+Add Item to Section" to begin this process.

Just follow these steps to get  set up, and you'll start receiving reports in your inbox daily.
