Depletions are a flexible feature to track anything going out of your inventory that isn't a return to a distributor.

Adding a Depletion

Creating the Depletion

  1. Tap the “Inventories” button on the bottom menu bar

    An arrow points to the "Inventories" tab
  2. Tap “Add Depletions”

    An arrow points to "Add Depletions"
  3. Enter the Depletion Info. Select the area where the item will be removed

    An arrow points to the "Area" field
  4. Select the Depletion Reason. If your venue doesn’t have any reasons, or you need to add a new one, tap “Other”

    An arrow points to the "Other" reason
  5. If creating a new reason, type the name of the reason and tap “Done.”

    An arrow points to the "Done" button
  6. After selecting your reason, tap “Done”

    An arrow points to the "Done" button
  7. Tap “Continue” to start adding items to the depletion

    An arrow points to the "Continue" button

Adding Items to the Depletion

With the depletion created, you can now add items to it.

When adding a depletion in the mobile app, it sets the date and time of the depletion to the present. To adjust the time, you can edit it on the WISK Web Portal after you add the items in the app. Learn how here.

In the area, find the items to add to the depletion. You can scroll through your list of items, use the search bar or the barcode scanner.

Full Units

Tap the + button to add the number of full units, or tap the number to input the amount.

Note: If you need to add cases, you can tap the item to see more options for adding.

Partial Units

Depending on the type of depletion, you can add partial units by using the visual mode, scale or entering a custom amount.

In this example, we’ll say that an open liquor bottle was dropped and is now broken. In order to track it:

  1. Tap the item

    An arrow points to the item indicating to tap it.
  2. Tap “Add Partial”

    An arrow points to the "Add partial" button
  3. Select the method of measurement (Visual, Scale or Custom) and enter the amount. In this example, the bottle we broke was approximately half full, so we’d select 0.5 using the Visual method

    The partial unit options are highlighted for emphasis.
  4. Tap Confirm after entering the amount

    An arrow points to the "confirm" button
  5. If you need to add any full units as well, you can do that now. Otherwise, tap “Confirm”

    An arrow points to the "Confirm" button
  6. The item is added to the depletion.

Submitting the Depletion

  1. When you have added all of the items to the depletion, tap “Proceed to current scans”

    An arrow points to the "Proceed to current scans" button
  2. A summary of the items display. Tap “Submit depletion”

    An arrow points to the "Submit depletion" button
  3. Tap “Confirm”. The items are then removed from your venue

    An arrow points to the "Confirm" button

Now that the items have been removed from your venue, this will be factored in when calculating your consumption data. To learn more, see:
