The Multi additions operation supports multiple vessels per operation, with multiple additives per vessel.
It is designed to be flexible to accommodate for a large range of uses; ranging from the large monthly additions to smaller operations with only a few additions.
Select Operations > Multi additions to access this operation.
1. Create/Select an Additive Template
If you are unfamiliar with additive templates you can read up on setting them up here.
The Additive Template is used for each wine product added to the operation. It is required in order to continue with the Setup Wizard, as it is needed to calculate the total amount of the additives.
Using a Temporary Additive Template
You can create a temporary template or update the selected Additive Template to use temporarily for this operation by clicking Modify.
Modifying a template: Modify additions/values based on an existing template that will be used for each of the added wine products. This will not affect the selected Additive Template and the modified template will only exist for the current operation.
Creating a temporary template: Add the additives you wish to use as a template for the operation. The Template does not get saved at the end of the operation; though if you find that you are creating the same temporary template multiple times, it’ll be simpler to actually create the template from Winery Setup > Production > Additive template.
2. Select Wines to use from the Setup Wizard
Click Search for wines to make filling out the Multi Additions operation easier.
The setup will calculate the amount of additive needed for each wine based on the selected wines and the Additive Template. The setup will detect any errors and ask if you want to remove them before loading the data into the Multi Additions section.
Selecting the wines
On the Selecting Wines screen, click Add Wines from Product Search until you have added all the selected wines before clicking Continue.
Helpful Product Search Tip: If you are using a template that has a Target rate, you can use the Bulk wine search to help find wines that are under the targeted rate by clicking on More options. Refer to Bulk wine search for more information about this search.
For example, selecting Free SO2 as the Metric and 30 as the max (pmm).
Additive Total Amount Summary
The Summary shows the total amount of the Additive calculated from the selected vessels and template.
Users who have the Inventory module can also choose where the Additive stock item is routed from and Users without the Inventory module can select which Lot to use.
If there were errors in the calculation then it will not contribute towards the total amount. In the example above there is no amount set for Yeast - VL2 as it couldn’t be calculated.
Difference between choosing Ok or Skip
OK: Updates the Multi Additions section with the selected wines and pre-fills all the addition’s information. It will also notify you of any errors (as shown below).
Skip: Updates the Multi Additions section with the selected wines and uses the Additive template to pre-fill the additions, though it does not fill in the calculated amount. This is useful when scheduling the operation and wouldn’t know the correct rates/amounts etc.
Once you are done with the summary, clicking Ok will display any errors the setup found while calculating the additive amounts. You can then modify or remove them individually in the Multi Additions section of the operation after this step.
In the example above, the additive was not set up in the system properly, which caused the error to occur as there is an Amount of 0.
3. Edit/Add Additions in the Table
Use the Multi Additions section to add, edit or remove wines and additions.
You can add more wines by clicking Add Line or Add From Search at the top of this section.
You can add more additions by clicking Add Additive for the wine you wish to apply an extra additive to.
4. Verify any modifications before saving
Click Verify to check each entry in the section below. It will also highlight any errors as well as update the green tick icon for the verified information.
Using the hide functionality
Click Hide to hide the additions by showing a summarized additive table. A wine’s additive information can only be hidden if it is verified (ie. No errors).
By clicking Hide Verified all of the wines that are verified will be hidden. This is especially useful if the operation has many wines, as it will help single out the wines that need to be modified. Clicking Hide Verified will toggle between Hide Verified and Show All.
Click Save once you have entered all of the mandatory data and all of the entries are verified.
