Greetings Metrc Users,
This bulletin provides information on the latest enhancements to Metrc,which will become effective on June 1st, 2020. The enhancements are listed below.
I. Added Plant Batch Enhancements
II. Added"Packaged By" field to all Package popovers
III. Added the "Strain" column to Lab Samples grids
IV. Finished Packages must be unfinished before users can edit or record sales to the package
V. Updated CSV Upload Guide
Detailed descriptions of each change are provided on the following pages:
Immature plant batches are now able to be “split” after creation, as seen in Figures 1 and 2. This process can be used in a case of moving part of an immature plant batch to another location. Please note that there is no way to undo this action nor the ability to merge different plant batches.
Once the Split Plantings is selected, an action window opens where they will complete the information about the new planting, including Plants Count, Group Name, Strain, Location, and Planting Date. Once this information is completed, then select the "Split Plantings" Button.
A popover grid is displayed by hovering the mouse over the
symbol anywhere in Metrc. In addition to all of the package and item information, newly added is a "Packaged By" field that will display the facility license number that created the package shown in Figure 3.
Users within Testing Facilities who have the View Packages permission have access to a new Lab Samples tab on the Packages page. Newly added to the Lab Samples grid is the "Item Strain" column, which will populate with the Strain of the item, if applicable as seen in Figure 4.
With this new update, recording or editing sales receipts and deliveries from a finished package will no longer be able to be done. Attempting to do so will result in the error message, as seen in Figure 5.
To unfinish a package, navigate to the Inactive tab on the Packages grid and select the package finished package with which the action is to be performed in the sales action. Once selected, use the"Unfinish" button as seen in Figure 6 and confirm the package being unfinished is in the action window that follows.
Once the package is unfinished, then make any sales actions required. Please note that if the sales actions are performed that results in anon-zero amount, the package will not be able to be finished.
Metrc Support has updated the CSV Formatting Guide, which can be found under the support area on the top navigational bar, as seen in Figure 7.
