Entering A Waste Log

Print Friendly

Waste Log Feature – Allows you to account for Inventory Item Waste. This is very similar to the Item Transfer transaction and is used in conjunction with the Item Costing module.

As a first step you need to ensure that you have a ‘Waste Account’ assigned to the items you will be recording waste for. Once you have the waste account assigned to your items you will be able to create a waste log.

To begin, Click on ‘Item Actions’ and then select ‘New Waste Log’w 2
A new Window will open. Update the header information. The ‘Number’ is auto generated by the system. You should not have to change this. ‘Date’ is the date the Waste occurred. ‘Location’ is the Location where the waste occurred. ‘Comment’ is an optional field.w 3

Once you have updated all the header information you are ready to add the detail line items to the ‘Waste Log’. ‘Item’ is the item that you are recording the waste for. Simply start typing the name of the item and then select the appropriate item from the drop down list (note: Only the items that you have assigned a Waste Account will appear in the Waste Log Item List). Next, tab to the ‘Quantity’ Field. Enter the quantity of the item you are recording the waste for.

Please note, the item quantity should be entered as a negative number to remove from stock. Next, tab to the comment field to enter a comment if needed. Next, click on the ‘Add’ button to add the detail line item to the waste log. Repeat these steps for each line item.


Once you have entered all the line items to the waste log, click on Save & Close or Approve & Close depending on your security role.


To access a ‘List View’ to view, edit, approve your saved ’Waste Logs’ select ‘Inventory Transactions’ in the ribbon on the left in the ‘Operations’ module.
