Setting a Count on your menu items is a handy way of notifying your staff of the current stock status of menu items. This is especially useful for items that have a potential for low stock and to run out quickly.
While this function can be performed by anyone with the Job Right Menu - Mark Items Out of Stock, for the purposes of this article, we're going to assume you're a manager performing this function.
Also because the screens in FOCUS are so customizable, your screens, canvas ribbons & command ribbons may differ from those shown below.
Simply log in to Front of House
Locate your Item Edit button.

Select the item that you need to assign a Count to and press the Count button:
Enter the quantity that you have on hand for the item and hit "OK":
Your item now has a count applied 🎉:
Every time you ring in the item, it will decrement the Count. Once it reaches zero, the item will be marked out of stock.
