The big changes that you need to be aware of is that we have replaced the old fields of Weight, Volume and Quantity with new fields of Case/Pack and Unit.

WARNING: This is extremely important for any customers who use our bulk edit / bulk update feature. Please read below!

In addition we've created easy-to-use measurement converters for ingredients where you need to use them by (e.g.) both weight and volume.

Changes to Bulk Editing of Ingredients

If you have not yet migrated your ingredients to the new format, you can continue to upload your existing spreadsheets as is.

Once you've migrated your ingredients to the new format, you have two options for the change of format required to update your ingredients via spreadsheet.

You can choose either New Units or Combined Units. These units are easily selectable as available download columns (depending on your preference) when you go to download a spreadsheet of your ingredients in order to edit and re-upload.

See below for a description of each option.

New Units

New units means you will upload three columns in your spreadsheet, one each for Case, Pack and Unit. For example, if you purchase 6 x 500ml cans of tomatoes, you would upload this in three separate column headers with headers (Case, Pack, Unit) as:

Case: 6

Pack: 500

Unit: ml

If you purchase 25lb boxes of almond flour, you would upload this as:

Case: 1

Pack: 25

Unit: lb

Combined Units

Some advanced users may choose to use our Combined Units feature. If you use this format, you can upload all three values (Case, Pack and Unit) in a single column. For example, if you purchase 6 x 500ml cans of tomatoes, you would upload this as a single column with the column header Purchase Amount:

6/500ml

If you purchase 25lb boxes of almond flour, you would upload this as:

1/25lb
