If your POS isn't integrated, you can still upload your sales data into WISK manually.

Just download the sales upload template on the WISK Web Portal and upload your sales for either:

  1. A period between two completed inventory counts

  2. A preset or custom date range.

Note: If your POS provider is incapable of integrating with WISK, please send a copy of your sales/product mix in XLS or CSV format to support@wisk.ai. We may be able to configure your sales file so you can upload it directly instead of transferring the data into our upload template.

  • Item Name - the name of the item in the POS

  • Quantity Sold - the quantity sold of the item in the sales report period. This number should include comped and discounted items as well.

You can rename the file as needed, but make sure that it remains the XLSX file type.

Uploading Your Sales

When the template is filled out, you can then upload the sales:

1. Select the period for which you’ll be uploading the sales. You can choose either “Inventory Range” or “Date Range”.

Inventory Range

You can select a period between any two completed inventories. By default, it shows your two most recent inventories. You can click on the “From” and “To” fields to set the range.

Inventory Range is selected and the dates of completed inventories are selectable in the drop-down lists in

Date Range

You can select from a range of time periods in the drop-down list, or set a custom one. This allows you to upload sales regardless of when an inventory count has been completed.

Date Range is selected, and the drop-down menu has been clicked, showing all the available options.

Note: When you select a date range, it displays the period where the sales will be uploaded. The sales will be timestamped at the exact middle of the set period.

The period the sales are being uploaded for is highlighted.

2. Click “Browse” and select the filled out template

3. After choosing the file, there are a few advanced options you can select (depending on your venue's setup):

  • Keep existing sales for selected interval - If you have already uploaded sales data for the period, checking this will add the data in the file to the existing sales. If it is unchecked, the sales upload will overwrite all existing sales data for the period.

  • The upload is for the secondary POS - If you have more than one POS, and one of them isn’t integrated with WISK, you can upload your sales for that POS this way. By selecting this box, it won’t overwrite the sales from your other POS.

Note: "The upload is for the secondary POS" is only visible if you have designated a secondary POS in your Venue Settings.

4. When ready, click “Upload”

5. The sales data may take a moment to appear. If it does not, refresh your browser. You'll be able to view the sales data for the selected period on the Sales or Variance page .

The sales have been uploaded and the total value of the sales displays.

Note: If you upload the sales for a period and notice you forgot to include something, just add it to the template and re-upload it. Re-uploading the sales for a period overwrites the existing data (unless you check the “Keep existing sales for selected interval” box as detailed in Step 3 above).

If this is your first time uploading your sales, you will now have to add recipes to your sales items in the POS Items section. Learn more here:
