Filtering and Downloading Your Food Inventory History

We added these features because a few of our customers wanted to more easily reconcile their inventory for accounting and bookkeeping purposes, but maybe you'll come up with your own uses. Some things that might be worthwhile would be to analyze spoilage, determine your most popular products, and find inconsistencies over time.

Try it out for yourself, and let us know if you have any questions, feedback, or other suggestions. One thing we're thinking about adding is filtering transactions by type so you can look, for example, at all the inventory receipts, usage in a production run, spoilage, or physical counts. That way you can glean some insights into ingredients, products, and ultimately your business. Sound good? Let us know!
