There are two types of Suggested Ordering in Zip Ordering and Zip Inventory. PAR Level and Usage Per $1000. PAR Levels have you set a minimum quantity of that item. If you ever dip below that minimum quantity, the Suggested Ordering will prompt you to reorder a restock quantity. Usage Per $1000 estimates your ordering needs based on your forecasted sales by breaking down each menu item into its ingredients and ordering based on how much of each ingredient you will need to fulfill those forecasted sales.
Hope that helps!
