Greetings Metrc Users,
This bulletin provides information on the latest enhancements to Metrc,which will become effective on May 26th, 2020. The enhancements are listed below.
I. Additional Functionality for Plant Batches
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
Users are now able to"split" immature plant batches after creation, as seen in Figures 1 and 2. This process can be used in a case the user is moving part of an immature plant batch to another location. Please note that there is noway 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, location, 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 5.
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 6 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 seenin Figure 7.
