If your restaurant prepares batch recipes that have multiday shelf lives, including those recipes in your Inventory Count or Stock Count will provide a more accurate Cost of Goods sold (COGS) since the ingredients are part of your inventory until sold. 


To do this, complete the following steps:

  1.  Create the Prep Recipe in R365 by filling out only the required fields.
  2.  Ensure that the Prep Recipe is marked as 'Available in Inventory' by opening its Recipe Item record and clicking this checkbox on the 'General' tab.



  3.  Save the Recipe record.
  4.  Add this Recipe as an Item on your Inventory Count or Stock Count.
