Depletions are a flexible feature to track anything removed from your inventory that isn't a return to a distributor.
To learn more about depletions, and the appropriate time to use them, see:
Adding a Depletion
Creating the Depletion
Click Inventories > Depletions on the side menu bar
Click the "Actions" button, then under "New" click "Depletion
Click the "Area" drop-down list and select the area where the item(s) will be removed
Select the Depletion Reason. If your venue doesn’t have any reasons, or you need to add a new one, click “New depletion reason”
Note: If adding a new reason, enter the name for the depletion reason and click “OK”
Click “Save” to start adding items to the depletion
With the depletion created, you can now add items to it.
Before adding any items, double-check the Date field. It populates with the current date and time. If you're adding a depletion that happened in the past, click the date field to change when the item was removed from your inventory.
When the date and time are correct, you can add items:
Click the “Add Item” field and type the name of the item, then click the item from the search results
After selecting the item, enter the measurement and quantity. You can select cases, full units, or a manual weight or volume (depending on the item type)
Note: Depletions remove stock from your venue, so make sure you're entering a positive value for the quantity.
Click “Add” after entering the measurement and quantity
The item is added to the depletion, and it saves automatically. You can add more items to the depletion as needed. Click the “X” button to close the window when finished
When the depletion is added, the removed items are included in the consumption calculation for the inventory period. To learn more, see:
