Compare recipe against inventory?
« on: June 10, 2007, 06:36:31 PM »
Is there a way to have the tool check to see if there is enough inventory to brew a recipe?

Well, you can do this a few ways depending on what you are looking for...

 - From the "My Recipes" folders you can do a search, then click on "Add All Items in Inventory" and you will see a list of all of the recipes you have in the folder that you have enough ingredients to brew (you can play with the matching options if you want to loosen up the match).

 - Another interesting variation - empty your shopping cart.  Next add the ingredients from your recipe to the shopping cart.  Finally go to the shopping cart view and it will show what you need versus what you have in inventory.  You can also add a column called "Needed" by using the customize columns command on the view menu while in shopping view.

How about a "Add Missing Ingredients To Shopping List" button.
And what this button should do is add all items that are not in the inventory to the shopping list.
