Items (ingredients) for Composite Item doesnt show


Recommended Posts

Hi folks

I too am having a similar issue (as earlier reported by others). Please help. 

All the ingredients/ITEMS are not showing up when I try to make a dish/COMPOSITE-ITEM. What am I doing wrong? I think I have covered all basics, watched the tutorials, etc 😞

Hi. I have a menu item name "Special Family Dinner" which includes multiple composite items. The kitchen printer only prints out the line "Special Family Dinner" but does not list all the included composite item. Is there a way to do this?

The components of a composite item will not be shown in the kitchen order, only the name of the composite item will be printed (Special Family Dinner)

My suggestion is to create a Category: "Special Family Dinner" and assign all these composite items you want to be printed under this category.

Then, you have to assign this category to the printer group to which the kitchen printer is assigned to.

You can read how to configure kitchen printers here: https://help.loyverse.com/help/using-kitchen-printers

Note that, when you take the order, you will have to manually choose all the items that are part of “Special Family Dinner” category to add to the ticket.

Another option would be to add the name of the components of the item: "Special Family Dinner" as comment to this item manually during the sale when you add it to the ticket. Comments you add to an item will be shown in the Kitchen order.

I am having this same issue. I have an item with composite items in it and should be printed to two different printers. 1 printed for BAR (drinks) category, and 1 printed for KITCHEN (food) category. Is this possible for each printer to print them?

      My situation is the following: I want to sell Whiskey, but I could sell it with the following options: Coca Cola, Coca Cola Zero, Water and On the rocks (for example). I know I can make variants of an item, but how would it be possible for me to keep track of stock if I'm creating a new stock for each variant. 
      So basically, If i order a Whiskey Cola, then stock should be removed from Whiskey and from Coca Cola (Which is a separate item, but we use it as an addition / variant to the Whiskey).
      Could anyone help to find a logical solution to this? Or would I simply have to substract (each day) all the mixes variants to the original items?

      I am making cocktails. For instance, I have a bottle of Jack Daniels that costs 20EUR. I use 60ml in one of my drinks. However the size of the bottle of Jack is 700ml. 
      The cost of the item of Jack does not take into account the size of the bottle. So when making the composite item I cannot say 60ml, Instead I have to say 60/700 or 0.0857152. This is just an annoying calculation I have to do for every single cocktail.

      Am I missing an option where I can enter the initial ingredient bottle (Jack Daniels) to be priced per ml, rather than per bottle. Which would save me time calculating new measures for each different bottle size I have?

      I run a small Pizza shop.
      Every day I make new dough. The dough is a composite item, but since I make it every day, I do not want to make a "Production" because thats unnecessary admin.
      The pizza consists of single items (cheese, tomato sauce, etc.) and the dough, a composite item.
      When I sell a Pizza, it only tracks the stock of the single items (chees, tomato sauce etc.) not of the ingredients of the dough (flour, salt, yeast).
      The tutorial says, that when a composite Item is sold, it tracks stock. In my case I sell this composite Item, through the Item pizza (so we have a hyrarchie).
      How can I create composite Items, have a Master/slave relation and track the stock of the item on the lowest level?

      Different sale price option needs to happen i know i can use item variant option but that doesn’t help with the stock tracking and i know i can leave price field blank to set any price but what i want is to set two different price option in an item one for standard price the other for customize price when needed

      I have been reading and trying quite a bit about this issue but I cannot solve the problem.
      I am running a coffee take away with loyverse. so far everything is perfect, but when it comes to stock management, I have a big problem:
      We are selling a café latte
      the options are small, medium and large (different cups should be booked in the system)
      Type of milk (stock should be taken off the milk the customer chooses, for example 0,3L of oat milk in a medium latte)
      Topping such as syrup, adding 0,50€ to the bill and also tracking stock of this ingredient(for example: 0,015L of syrup)
      There should be a "no cup" option, for my staff or customers that bring their cup, it also needs to be reflected in stock that there was no cup used)
      Those are just a couple of the options, but I think they all have the same problem
      If I activate composite article, I cannot add variants. If I add variants, I cannot control the stock with those.
      It would be awesome if anybody has a solution for this. Thanks :)
