Stock levels can change for many reasons, including wastage and transfers from other locations. Record changes to your stock levels as they happen so that Cinema Manager can accurately track and report your stock.
Note: Enter stock adjustments before stocktakes whenever possible. If necessary, select the Include in current stocktake check box on the stock adjustment form to ensure the adjustments are recorded as part of the current stocktake. The Include in current stocktake option appers only when the AlterStockTransDate system setting is set to No.
Important! You can perform manual stock adjustments, but it's best to do so only in unusual circumstances, to correct data that has been entered incorrectly and can't be corrected in any other way. Stock adjustments don't create an explanatory record of changes, the way that stock receipts do.
- In Cinema Manager, on the Stock adjustments page, click Adjust stock and select the type of adjustment you want to make.
- Enter the date and default reference of the adjustment in the header.
Tip! Your default reference will appear against each item row to save time, but you can override it with a different reference.
Tip! If you're recording a stock adjustment you made in the past, you can backdate it by selecting a Date in the past.
- Record each item and the quantity change.
- Submit the adjustment.
Note: Some items can be included only in specific stock adjustment types. For example, Made at Sale Time (Recipe) items can only be adjusted by creating or reversing a 'waste' stock adjustment.
