Items with the "units" measurement type are best suited for things that don’t require a weight or volume, and are counted whole. This will vary depending on how your venue decides to track certain items, but some examples include:

  • Fruit (lemons, limes, oranges, etc.)

  • Eggs

  • Cutlery / Dishware

  • Souvenirs (Apparel, etc.)

Note: Items with this type cannot be counted as partial units. If you need to count partial units it should be measured in either a volume or weight-based unit of measurement.


To count items with a unit-based measurement type:

  1. With the item called up, tap the “+” button beside either the units or cases field or tap the number itself to enter an amount

    The "Cases" and "Unit" section of the screen is highlighted.

    Note: If you haven't set a case size for the item already, tap the pencil icon on the top right to edit the item

  2. The total item count displays on the "Confirm" button. Tap “Confirm” to add the items to your inventory
