Introduction

Sometimes you create / add an item to your venue and discover later that it's the wrong size, or wrong unit of measurement.

Before catching the error, you may have inventoried the item a few times, received it on an invoice, etc.

Common mistakes include:

  • Putting the correct quantity, but wrong unit of measurement. For example, putting 1000L instead of 1000ml, or 12ml instead of 12oz

  • Using "unit" or "each" as the unit of measurement on a weight or volume based item. You won't be able to count partial units or map recipes / batches easily.
