Purpose of Clicking "Complete" for each ingredient addition in a stage

Other than a visual reminder, does clicking the “Complete” checkbox do anything for ingredient additions in a stage? Does it effect inventory levels if the ingredients themselves have been added but not “Completed”? Can we just ignore this feature without any adverse effects?

Short answer: you can safely ignore ticking the actual box if you’d like, it has no effect on stock levels in itself, but it does have other benefits, which are mentioned in the article below.
