How to edit Product Recipes?
This article focuses on changing the default Product Recipe for a product on the product card.
You can also edit the quantity of ingredients on each Manufacturing Order if you used more or fewer ingredients in actual production that is defined in the default Product Recipe. Read more about Manufacturing Orders here.
The following guide focuses on editing Product Recipes one-by-one. If you are looking to edit your recipes in bulk, please refer to this article.
Step 1 - Navigate to a Product Recipe on a product card
Product Recipe can be edited and deleted for a product on a product card. Navigate to the "Items" screen, select "Products" tab from the top of the table and click on a product you wish to edit. Find a Product Recipe / BOM tab next to the General Info.
Step 2 - Edit the Product Recipe
Edit ingredients (materials and subassemblies), quantities and variant values - just click on the respective fields and change the values. All changes are saved automatically. Note that the Unit of Measure for quantities can be edited on respective material or product (i.e. subassembly) cards. Variant Option Values are only visible when you have enabled variants for a product and inserted Variant Options.
You can also replace an existing Product Recipe with a recipe of another product. Read more about copying Product Recipes.
Stock Cost field - this is a calculated field and cannot be manually edited. Stock Cost = Average Cost of Item in Stock * Quantity.
Delete ingredients - you can delete materials and subassemblies in a Product Recipe by clicking on the trashcan button at the end of the row of an item. If you wish to delete the whole Product Recipe for a product, just delete all materials and subassemblies from the recipe.
Note: Changes in the Product Recipe do not apply to automatically to existing Manufacturing Orders (MO). You will see a notification at the bottom of the screen on the Manufacturing Order if the Product Recipe for the product has been changed and can choose to refresh the recipe for the MO.
