How do I install it?
Head to the app market on your Clover device and find the Recipe Keeper app and install it.
I’ve installed the app, what next?
Great! Now all you have to do is add recipes for your stocking products and Recipe Keeper will keep track of them for you.
1) Set Clover Auto Decrement setting to OFF (Go to Inventory App -> Settings) and uncheck the second option “Have Clover auto-decrement stock count”
2) Open the Recipe Keeper app from your Clover Home Screen
3) Press ADD RECIPE
4) Complete the details of the recipe item
5) Below this add the details for the ingredient items. You can add more than one ingredient item, for example, you can map the recipe item Bacon Grilled Cheese Sandwich to ingredient items bacon, Swiss cheese and white bread at the same time.
I’m getting a message telling me to turn off auto decrement. What’s this and how do I do it?
Auto decrement allows clover to subtract sold items from inventory, since we are doing this for you it needs to be switched off or your stock counts will be wrong. Open the inventory app and press SETUP, check the TRACK STOCK option but uncheck the HAVE CLOVER AUTO-DECREMENT STOCK COUNT option.
What is a mapping and what is the correct way to add one?
A mapping is the relationship between products – the items that you stock (ingredients) and the item that you sell (recipe). The mapping indicates the volume of the stock item and the volume of it that is used in the selling item. Recipe Keeper uses that information to know how much stock to remove from the stocking products when you’re selling your products. To add a mapping simply launch the app from your Clover home screen, click Add Recipe. On the Add Recipe screen select the category of the selling item (recipe) from the first dropdown. After that select the category of the stocking item from the first dropdown on the second row, choose the stocking item (ingredient) from the second dropdown, fill it’s stocking volume (ex. 500), it’s measurement unit (ex. Liter), how much of it is used in this selling item (recipe, ex. 50) and the measurement unit that is used in this recipe (ex. Milliliter). If you want to add another stocking item (ingredient) for this selling item (recipe), click on Add Another Ingredient – this will show you a new set of rows which you can fill with the second ingredient for this recipe. When you’re happy with the setup click Save and you should be able to see your new mappings on the app’s main screen.
