Products, often also known as Batches, are items that you keep in stock that you don’t buy in from a supplier. For example, if tomatoes and basil are Ingredients you purchase from a supplier, then the Tomato Sauce you make out of them would be a Product.
To view the Products you already have set up, go to Operations > Manage Products in KOBAS Cloud’s main menu. In this screen you will see a list of all the Products you have already set up and you can Edit each as required.
