  • On a scheduled production time
  • Note - You can then use the Prep tab in Produce to schedule and track production of these products. (discussed below)
  • After a customer has ordered the product



  • Generally not.
  • But you can also create, for example, a batch of croissants which is then sold individually on POS.
  • Yes



  • Pizza dough
  • Seafood Pizza
When will stock update:
  • When the Actual Yield is recorded once the batch is finished
