Hi Amirah,

Thank you for your response. I have a few questions as I have viewed those links when setting up the composite items.

1. Does the stock count need to be done prior to adding a composite item? Track stock enabled?

2. I sell a range of fruit frappes and need guidance on this - is this deemed a variant given it also uses composite items like cups etc?

3. As the admin user, can I hide items from the POS on my phone as I can see the range of coffee for sale but don't want the cup variants etc to be seen in the POS? Would I have to add another user for this?

Regards

Brendan

1. If you would like the item's stock to be depleted then you must turn on the track stock for the ingredients before starting selling the composite item, When you start selling the composite item, the stock of its ingredients will be reduced accordingly.

2. Variants cannot have composite items, they are only options that you choose to sell with your items (their stock can be tracked, have their own barcodes and their own cost)

3. All employees who have access to the POS will be able to see the items on the sales screen with their variants, it is not possible to hide this. However, with employee management it is possible to hide the items list on the POS for example so employees will not be able to modify items

      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?
       
      Thanks,
      Tom.

      Hello,
      Can I print each component of a composite items to different kitchen printer? My composite items have as components food items and drinks. I want to print the food items in Kitchen printer and the drinks in the Bar printer. Is it possible?

      Ive recently signed up to the advanced inventory but finding a major flaw that I cant seem to get around. As we run a cafe/Bar there are many items that are composite items that also require variants. For example:
      Sausage and Egg Breakfast Sandwich (set up Sausage and egg as composite) but if customer wishes to add mushrooms/tomatoes ect i cant find a way to add a variant which also tracks the stock.
      Another example:
      Vodka which we will in either a single or double - Set up Vodka as an item and the add variant of size - single and double. But this will not track stock as it is classed as two separate items.
      Should there not be an option available to add composite items as well as variant items which can then also include composite items?
      Im unsure how other business get around this? As most of out items bar and cafe items have some sort of variant.

      Let's take the example of an omelette which has the menu option of 2, 3 or 4 toppings (each having a different price).  These toppings can be selected from a list of, lets say, 10 items.
      The problem is that each of the 10 ingredients has a different cost and potentially a different selling price as well.  In Loyverse, the cost price, margin, gross profit is not calculated correctly and the ingredients are not handled adequately using either variants or modifiers.  Surely I am not the only person having the problem.
      Question:  Is there a workaround or are Loyverse addressing this very basic need.

      How many levels is possible to make while creating a composite item consisting of other composite items? Sometimes I cannot find an item to add as a component to a composite item.
