The Code field is the identifier used by Zubi to find this item in the database. The code needs to be unique amongst the items within the finished products module.
Zubi will suggest a code for you to use and this will display in the Code field. If you already have a code you want to use to identify this finished product just over write the prefilled code with the one you prefer - just remember it needs to be one you have not already entered for a finished product. If it is Zubi will not save the finished product.
The Name field is for the name of the finished product. It's what you'd call it. You may want to use it for a short name because the description field (it's next) could be used to classify the finished product in another way.
Be aware this product name transfers onto the product label or report so choose a name that others will understand.
The Description field is an optional one which you may want to use to supplement the name field.
You can choose to add a brand to the product by picking a brand for the drop down list.

Country or Origin
You can choose options for the Country of Origin statement. The first drop down gives options such as "Made in" etc, and the second drop down is where you choose the country that applies.
The link ingredient option is only used for finished products that you want to also add to your
ingredients database. This will allow this finished product (which may be a pre-mix, or intermediate product) to be used as an ingredient in another formulation.
If you tick the Link Ingredient box nothing obvious will happen but if you search the Product Code it will come up as both an ingredient and a product but the ingredient version will have a i on the end of the code.
And when you open the product again it will indicate that it si linked and will allow you to open the ingredient directly from within the product ID tab.
Business Name field
The text in the business name field will display on your label reports since it's a mandatory field on most food products.
Your business name is stored in the Business section of the Administration Tabs. You can alter the name in here and it will display on all new finished products you create.
Business Address field
The text in the Business Address field will display on your label reports since it's a mandatory field on most food products.
Your business address is stored in the Business section of the Administration Tabs. You can alter the address in here and it will display on all new finished products you create.
This field can be used to record the barcode for this product. If you enter a barcode in here it will print on the "labels" you download or display from Zubi. It will not show on the "detailed label reports".
Please note, Zubi can not guarantee the barcodes will be GS1-complaint when printed.
Display Country of Origin option
This tick box controls whether the country of Origin statesmen displays on Zubi reports.
