Inventory Zones, Count, and History Fuse Overview

Dashboard -> Inventory Hub

The Zones, Count, and History fuse work together to manage a restaurant’s inventory.  

The Zones fuse is used to initially organize ingredients by area or shelf, such as “Freezer” or “Custodial”.  Sorting items stored in the same area or shelf in the same zone allows for an employee taking inventory to quickly select the zone, and count the items.  For more information on zones, see the tutorial on How to Create, Edit, and Delete Zones.

The Count fuse is used after setting up zones.  The Eyenalyze Count System allows users to quickly count items and ingredients in the restaurant for inventory purposes.  For more information on how to take a count, see the tutorial How to Take a Count.

After a Count is taken it will appear in the History Fuse.  The History Fuse is a complete record of all past inventory counts to be viewed and managed.

How to Create, Edit, and Delete Zones

Dashboard -> Inventory Hub -> Zones

The Zones Fuse manages a restaurant’s zones.  

To create a new zone, in the Zones box select “New…” and the new zone popup box will appear.  Enter the name for the new zone, then select done. The new zone will appear in the zones box.  

To add items to a zone, first select the zone, then at the bottom select “Add Item(s)”.  The Add Items popup box will appear. Specific ingredients can be searched, or a user can scroll through and select ingredients sorted by category.  After selecting items to be added to the zone, press “Add Item(s)” and the ingredients will be added to the zone.

To remove an item from a zone select the red trash can to the right of the item.  To delete a zone, select the zone, then at the bottom select “Delete Zone”.

How to Take a Count

Dashboard -> Inventory Hub -> Count

When using Eyenalyze, we refer to the action of counting a restaurant’s inventory as taking a count.  

The Count Fuse acts as a clipboard when taking a count.  Begin by adding a zone: select Add, and the Add Item dialog box will appear, then select the category or zone being counted.  Specific items can be added, or at the bottom select “Load Zone” to add every item in that zone to the clipboard.

When taking a count, select the item and enter the item count.  Users can enter whole cases, whole packs, partial packs, or a combination depending on the item.  

Once finished taking the count, we recommend removing all zero items from the clipboard before hitting submit.  To remove all zero items select “Remove” and choose “All Zero Items”. To finish the count select “Submit” and the options dialog box will appear.  Enter a signature and any notes for the count. When finished, hit Submit.

After hitting submit the user will be taken to a review page for the count with an assortment of information to be reviewed to ensure the count was accurate.  

All counts can be viewed in the History Fuse in the Inventory Hub.
