When you generate an order in WISK, you have to add the invoice when the order arrives in your venue.

When adding the invoice, you'll confirm that you received the items, and make adjustments to the quantity and item cost if needed.

Selecting an Open Purchase Order

To add the invoice for an order you generated in WISK:

  1. Tap “Orders” along the bottom menu bar

    An arrow points to the "Orders" tab on the app home screen.
  2. Tap “Add Invoices”

    The "Add Invoices" button is highlighted on the "Orders" screen.
  3. You’ll see a list of your open purchase orders, showing the distributor and the details. Tap an open purchase order to add the invoice

    On the "Add Invoices" screen, an open purchase order is highlighted for emphasis.

Note: If you didn’t generate an order, you can add an invoice by tapping “Add manual invoice”.

Adding Invoice Details

After selecting the purchase order, you’ll add the invoice details:

  1. Tap the “Date” drop-down to select the date and time. It auto-populates with the current date and time by default. The time should reflect when the items from the invoice were unboxed and placed with your other stock

    On the "Invoice Info" screen, the "Date" drop-down has been tapped and is highlighted. You can choose the date and time the invoice items were added to the venue's stock.

    Note: You can't set an invoice date before a locked inventory. Learn more here

  2. Drag horizontally and tap an area to select where the items from the invoice were added. If items were put into multiple areas, select the most applicable one

    The "Area" section is highlighted and the "Stockroom" area has been selected.
  3. You can also add the invoice number and total (the total includes all charges, fees, credits, etc.) in the optional fields

    The optional section is highlighted where it shows the invoice number and the invoice total.
  4. When done, tap “Continue”

Invoice Photos

At this point you're prompted to take a clear photo of each page of the invoice. This creates a digital record that you can view in your account.

Note: In the Venue Settings on the WISK Web Portal you can make adding photos a requirement when adding invoices. Otherwise, you can skip this step.

  1. Tap the “Scan” button to open the camera on your device

    An arrow points to the "Scan" button.

    Note: If you have already taken photos of the invoice on your device, tap "Select" instead and proceed to Step 6.

  2. Follow the prompt on the screen to position your camera so that the invoice page is in the frame

    The camera opens in the app. An onscreen prompt directs you to position the invoice within the frame.

  3. You’ll see a visual indicator when the camera detects an invoice page. Hold the camera still and it will take a picture automatically

    When the invoice is detected, it is highlighted in blue, and scans the highlighted area.

    Note: You can also tap the button on screen to take a picture. If you do, you'll need to manually set the scan area

  4. When the photo is taken, it appears as a thumbnail on the bottom left. Tap the thumbnail to review it and make sure it isn't blurry

  5. If the image appears blurry, you can tap “Retake” on the top-right corner to take another photo. If it looks good, tap “Done”

  6. If the invoice has multiple pages, scan/select each of them. When finished, tap “Save”

  7. You’ll see a summary of all the photos you’ve taken. You can tap a photo to view it, or delete it by swiping it to the left and tapping “Delete”. When you are done, tap “Submit”

    The invoice photo review screen where you can view or delete photos. The "Submit" button is highlighted.

Reviewing / Adjusting the Invoice

You’re now on the “List” tab. This shows you everything that was included in the purchase order. You’ll then compare the items on the order to your invoice to make sure you received everything and make any adjustments if necessary.

Received Items

If you received the item and the full amount placed in your order, you’ll swipe it to the right, and it gets added to the invoice.

Weight-Based Items

For items that you purchase by a specific weight instead of a package/unit, you may need to adjust the amount that you received. For example, if you ordered 10lb of ground beef, but received slightly less (9.95lbs).

    An arrow points to the amount ordered for the item.
