The STEP by STEP to convert to the base unit of your products

Converting to the base unit is very easy! Check it out here


In order to correctly show you the price of the ingredients of your dish, we must unify the preset units of measurement. This is because, for example, in order to make a bill of material, we must know exactly how many grams of blueberries there are in 1 tray, or how many litres there are in 2 bottles of milk, since "grams" or "litres" are the units of measurement we normally use to make recipes.

So how does this process work? It's actually very easy: you can do it in the product configuration itself or during the creation of the bill of material.ย 

The process is always the same:

1. Choose a base unit of measurement: this can be kg, litres or units. We recommend, as far as possible, that you always choose kg or litres.ย 

2. Make the conversion. Let's look at some examples:

- 1 box of blueberries = 0,5Kg

- 5 units of milk = 5Lย 

- 4,000 grams of salmon = 4Kg

Important! You will only have to do this process the first time you use the product in your bill of materials. It will be saved for the next times.


I want to edit the conversion, how do I do it?

If you want to edit the conversion, you will have to do it from the product configuration. How? In 3 steps:

1. Within the bill of materials, click on the edit symbol of the ingredient. You can also search for it in the Products module.

2. Go to its settings by clicking on the 3 dots on the top right.

3. In the Purchases section you can edit your conversion, and that's it!
