An article is data created (or imported) by the user and which will be used to compose the recipe data sheets on melba. The term article designates the food ingredients or non-food items, used in melba and most often from supplier price lists.
The simple and successive creation of articles is done in two steps:
Simple creation is available in the Articles section of the main menu
Click on the floating button Create an article accessible via the " + " at the bottom left.
A first modal invites to:
The creation of an article passes by the good name of this last. The goal is to be able to find it easily.
An effective naming of an article present in the price list consists of qualifying it in the most generic to the most precise way.
Generic ingredient_format_qualifier 1_qualifier2
More concretely, with almond powder, it gives: “Almonds in powder_brutes” which would be different from another article entitled “Almonds in powder_white_extrafine”
It should be understood that several suppliers and several packaging formats can be managed under the same article. However, when converting recipe data sheets into orderable items, melba takes into account the primary supply unit, the one ranked first and highlighted.
In this case, the product title must take these elements into account.
“Generic ingredient_format_qualifier 1_qualifier 2_packaging_supplier name”
More concretely, with almond powder, it gives: “Almonds in powder_brutes_125g_Albert Ménès” which would be different from another article entitled “Almonds in powder_blanches_extrafine_500g_Jean Hervé”
The use of the article's internal code is more or less relevant depending on the operational habits of the user. However, it makes it possible to differentiate between very similar items (fruits and vegetables) and to simplify the identification of a product.
Associating allergens with an item allows you to:
It is therefore necessary to choose from among the proposals displayed in the "Allergens" drop-down selector of the first block of information which correspond to the 14 allergens which must be declared.
The qualification of the nature of the item is necessary for the creation of a new item. Destined to be transformed or not, this makes it possible to automatically benefit from the property parameters of the article (units of weight, volume, etc.)
It is possible to create item or sub-recipe products, directly when composing a recipe.
To create a product from the composition, you must go to one of the recipes available in the Recipe section of the main menu.
After composing the recipe, click on the Create an article button .
