The recalculation of nutritional values after updating the ingredients of the dish, occurs when you click Calc. cost price on the Recipe tab.
If you need to declare products arrival in the warehouse using other measurement units than the base ones, go to the Products card through the Administration panel\Products\Products and Dishes\Meas.units tab and specify additional measurement units for your incoming order:
For example, we have Milk which base unit is the Litre. On the tab of measurement units management we can add an additional measurement unit “Bottle 1.5 l” with base unit calculation factor equal to 1.5. Thus to declare the receipt of 3 bottles in the warehouse, we have to specify “Milk, unit Bottle 1,5 l, quantity 3” in the products receipt document. The program will automatically make the conversion of the quantity and price into base unit and we will get 1.5 * 3 = 4.5 litres entered the warehouse.
