How to Take a Count

how-to-take-a-count-ss

When using Eyenalyze, we refer to the action of counting your restaurant’s inventory as taking a count.  To take a count, from the Dashboard go to the Inventory Hub, then go to the Count fuse.

Dashboard -> Inventory Hub -> Count

The Count fuse acts as your clipboard when taking a count.  Begin by adding a page.  Select Add, and the Add Item dialog box will appear.  From here you can select different categories and select the items within them.  Specifically you can select zones that you have set up, and the items in that zone will populate to the right.  From here you can add specific items, or at the bottom you can select “Load Zone” to add every item in that zone to your clipboard.

When taking a count, simply select the item and enter the item count.  Users can enter whole cases, whole packs, or partial packs depending on the item.

Once you are finished taking your count, we recommend that you remove all zero items from your list before you submit.  To remove all zero items select “Remove” and choose “All Zero Items”. To finish your count select submit, and the options dialog box will appear.  Enter your signature and any noes you have for the count, and when you are finished select submit.  After submitting you will be taken to a review page for your count where you can view an assortment of information about your count and review it to ensure it was accurate.

Your new zone will appear in the zones box.  To add items to a zone, select the zone, then at the bottom select “Add Item(s)”.  The Add Items dialog box will appear.  From here you can search for specific items, or you can look through different categories that sort your items.  Simply find the items you wan to add, select them, and when you are finished select add items.

To remove an item from a zone click the red trash can to the right of the item, and to delete a zone completely select the zone then at the bottom select Delete Zone.

Inventory Zones, Count, and History Fuse Overview

Dashboard -> Inventory Hub

The Zones, Count, and History fuse work together to manage your restaurant’s inventory.

The Zones fuse makes the inventory process for your restaurant simple and efficient.  Putting items that are stored in the same area or on the same shelf in the same zone allows for the user to select a specific zone when taking inventory and the items there will already be on your list.  For more information on zones please see the tutorial on how to create, edit, and delete zones.

The Count fuse is used after you have set up your zones and are ready to take inventory.  The Eyenalyze count system allows for users to use the zones they have created to take an inventory of the items in their restaurant.  For more information on counts, please see the tutorial on how to take a count.

After a count is taken it will appear in the History fuse.  The History fuse is a complete list of all past inventory counts that you can view and manage.
