Starting on June 2nd, 2020, Providers will be required to record a patient sale in real time and patients will now have purchasing limits with equivalencies based on Flower and THC allotments that will reset on the 1st of every month. Additional information on these equivalencies and limits were outlined within Bulletin 14.If a licensee experiences a patient whom they believe their status has not reset, the licensee needs to take the following steps:
1. Toggle to the Patient Status Lookup in Metrc
2. Enter the Patient Number exactly as it appears for the patient card number
3. Take a screenshot of the Patient Status Lookup
4. Please email [email protected] with the screenshot and the date/time the screenshot was taken. Please do not email in the same screenshot if you are stating the issue is occurring multiple times.
5. If the issue is believed to be resolved prior to feedback from Metrc, it is also extremely helpful to send confirmation back to Metrc Support so this issue can properly be managed.
The Metrc team wants to thank all licensees who reach out and provided very helpful information on any issue or matter that arises. The Metrc team also wants to express appreciation to those who follow the steps above to ensure accurate and up to date information is in place so that is can properly be reviewed and corrective action can be taken based on the information provided.
Cultivation users are now able to "split" immature plant batches after creation, as seen in Figures 2 and 3. Please note that there is no way to undo this action nor merge different plant batches.
Once the user selects the split plantings option, they will see an action window where they will complete the information about the new planting, including plant count, plant batch name,Strain, and plant date. Once this information is completed, the user will select "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.
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" field, which will populate with the Strain of the item, if applicable.
With this new update, users will no longer be able to record or edit sales receipts and deliveries from a finished package. Attempting to do so will result in the error message, as seen in Figure 6.
To unfinish a package, the user will navigate to the Inactive tab on the Packages screen and select the package with which they want to perform a sales action. Once selected, the user will use the"Unfinish" button as seen in Figure 7 and confirm the package you are unfinishing in the action window that follows.
Once the package is unfinished, the user can make take any sales actions required. Please note that if the sales actions are performed that results in a non-zero amount, the user will not be able to finish that package.
Metrc Support has updated the CSV Formatting Guide, which can be found under the support tab on the top navigational bar, as seen in Figure 8.
Metrc is also excited to announce the release of our Bulletin Archive. By May 29th,2020 all Metrc Montana Bulletins will be published on the Metrc Montana Web page.
