This topic explains how to view and optionally modify an existing inventory item.

Open the Inventory Items List

To open the inventory items list

  • In the left pane of Back Office Management console, click Inventory, and then click Inventory Items:

Open an Item Property Tabbed Page

To open a tabbed page with the inventory item properties, in the Name column, click the item name. This displays a tabbed page, which includes the following abs: General, Recipe, Disassemble Recipe, Included intoLots, Vendors, and History

To view or modify the inventory item properties, navigate to an appropriate tab.

General Tab

On this tab, you can view and modify general properties of that item.  For details, see “Adding New Inventory Items” in Managing Inventory Items.

Recipe Tab

On this tab, you can add, view and modify the recipe of that item.  

To add a recipe

  1. Click Add Recipe.
  2. Complete the Recipe form similar to the following screen, and click Save:

To complete the Recipe form

  1.  In the Portion text box, enter a portion weight (in kg) in Portion.
  2. In the Item Name column, start typing a component (inventory item) name, and select it from the provided list.
  3. In the Net column, specify the net weight (in kg only) of the component.
    NOTE: The Qty and Gross columns  are automatically updated. You do not need to set any values in this column.
  4. Optionally, specify appropriate values in the Losses, % column.
  5. Click Save.


To clarify, consider the recipe for Russian salad. The salad recipe includes the canned green peas (net weight of a can is 0.3 kg). According to this recipe, a salad portion contains 0.05 kg of green peas, and you enter this value in the Net column next to Green peas (canned). After this, YumaPos automatically calculates: Qty = 0.167 (in pcs), and Gross = 0.067 (in kg).
