Note: This article explains how you can use vintrace to track topping without updating a wines composition. This method of tracking topping could conflict with your government/regions particular reporting requirements. You will need to determine if you are allowed to track topping operations in this manner.
Please read our guide on topping your wines in vintrace
There are two steps required to record a topping if you are choosing not to update your wine composition. Firstly you will need to create a Product Treatment to record which wines you have topped. This can be setup in Winery Setup > Treatment > Treatment (Product).
Next you will need to apply that treatment to the batches of wines you have topped. This can be done using Operations > Treatment (Product). You can schedule these jobs to a work order or use the Bulk Wine Search option to select multiple batches of wine at once.
Once the operation is completed this will show up in the history for each of these wines as well as being reported on using the Operation Throughput report.
The last step is depleting the wine in vessel that you used as your topping material. Here you can use the Measurement operation under Operations > Measurement. Record the amount used for topping as the loss amount and use an appropriate loss reason so you can report on wine used for topping.
Another consideration that should be made in record your toppings in this method is the costing impact. The cost of the topping material will not be added to the destination batches as it normally would on a multi-topping operation. Therefore you will need to manually adjusting any costs based on these operations.
