Check the box to add or remove an ingredient from IVA reporting. If the ingredient does not go into recipes adding it to the IvA report will cause high variance. Consider only adding items that go into Recipes.
For items set up to allow credits, ensure bid file price is set to positive.
If you change measures, you will also need to update your bid file multipliers accordingly.

Deleting an Ingredient
By design, our system does allow you to delete data that has historical reporting. Instead, we recommend that you change the name for prepped items or ingredients with a preface of X or DNU or Do Not Use.
If you have any questions about deleting anything from the system, it is recommended that you consult with us first so that you don't create unintended consequences.
Please note, deleting an ingredient will remove history in the following locations and features in your site, this change can not be restored:

FAQ Keg Credits
If you need to have both credits AND deposits tracking as separate line items on a single receive you will need to create 2 ingredients and 2 bid files (one for the credit and one for the deposit). Then be sure to put the ingredient on the inventory set and bid file items on the order guides for a Manual Receive.
If you want to manage these as a single line item:
Create a single ingredient called keg credit/deposit
Create a bid file item under each distributor as a single item number with a positive price.
put the ingredient on the inventory set
put the dc item # on the order guide
When doing manual receive
Credits should be entered as a negative quantity.
Deposits should be entered as a positive quantity.
We want to ensure that all customers have access to our most current templates for the bulk import of data into Decision Logic. We can generate the following templates for you at any time. These can be returned via email to email@example.com
Bid file Items
How it works:
Start with the Ingredient Template. Fill that out with any items we need to set up for inventory and send it back to firstname.lastname@example.org
Once we import ingredients for you, you can ask we generate a new version of the attached bid file template that will contain all the new ingredients we just imported to help you quickly complete bid file mapping
Fill out 1 Bid File Template for each mydlweb.com (Restaurant website) for each Distributor, we are adding items for and send them back to us.
Example: If we are adding bid files to 5 different distributors you would send back 5 different excel files each named by the Distributor.
4. Once we import the next steps for you would be:
Add new Ingredients to Inventory Set
Add bid file items to Order Guides
Build Recipes in Recipe Book
Bulk Menu Item Import . For those using Recipe Book, this feature is currently disabled on your sites in the user interface but we can still import items via the database with the templates.
Please do not change the template format or data references contained in the template.
The templates are designed to directly insert into your database.
If the file is returned modified beyond repair or with import validation errors, we will send it back and ask you correct or create a new file.
You can ask us for a new bid file template anytime you add new ingredients.
