Prerequisites

Before configuring the plugin, you’ll need to set up and create the following:

Weight Settings

The Flower Inventory Manager plugin has recommended default weight settings, but admins are able to select any weight they wish for designated flower quantities.

Weight Weight (g.) Default (g.)
1 gram 1.0 1.1
1/8 ounce 3.54688 3.6
1/4 ounce 7.09376 7.2
1/2 ounce 14.18752 14.4
1 ounce 28.37504 28.8

You’ll notice that the default gram weight settings provide a healthy margin of error (up to almost 0.5 g. for an ounce), ensuring that any margin of error results in a inventory stock surplus.

Plugin Settings

The Flower Inventory Manager plugin’s settings allow admins to designate:

  • Enable Auto-Inventory
    Activates Auto-Inventory which will restock a flower’s variation inventory when the Flower Inventory is restocked.

  • Minimum Restock
    Minimum Flower Inventory restock weight, in grams, which will trigger the Auto-Inventory feature.

  • Restock % for 1 g., 1/8 oz., etc.
    Designate the percentage of Flower Inventory which will be used for each variation’s Auto-Inventory.

    • RECOMMENDED 1 g. = 50%, 1/8 oz. = 40%, 1/4 oz. = 10%

  • Enable Inventory Shift (beta)
    Activates Inventory Shift, which reduces a item from a larger weight variation to add more variations of a smaller weight variation.

    • EXAMPLE 1 There are three (3) 1/8 oz. in stock for a particular marijuana strain, but there are no 1 g. variations; one (1) 1/8 oz. unit will be removed to add three (3) units to the 1 g. variation.

    • EXAMPLE 2 There are four (4) 1/4 oz. in stock for a particular marijuana strain, but stock for 1/8 oz. falls below the Minimum Eighth Stock; one (1) 1/4 oz. unit will be removed to add two (2) units to the 1/8 oz. weight variation.

  • Minimum Gram Stock
    Minimum inventory for gram weight variations which should be maintained, by shifting inventory from the 1/8 oz. variation; 1/8 oz. ≈ 3 grams

  • Minimum Eighth Stock
    Minimum inventory for eighth weight variations which should be maintained, by shifting inventory from the 1/4 oz. variation; 1/4 oz. ≈ 2 eighths.

Setting Flower Inventory for a Marijuana Flower Product

In this section, we’ll review how to update the Flower Inventory for a single product which has the same product category as the Flower Product Category setting. Please note: until the Flower product category is selected, in the product, you will not see the Flower Inventory options.

In the product’s Product data section, in the Inventory tab, you will see the options for: Flower Inventory, Restock, Transfer, Transfer Amount and Transfer Product.

  • Flower Inventory
    Total weight, in grams, available for a specific strain of raw marijuana flower.

  • Restock
    To restock, select the checkbox, update the Flower Inventory to the total flower weight available, and Update the product.

  • Transfer
    To transfer, select the checkbox, indicate the weight amount to transfer, select the Transfer Product (pre-rolled products), and Update the product.

  • Transfer Amount
    Total weight, in grams, to transfer to the designated Transfer Product.

  • Transfer Product
    The Pre-rolled product to which the Transfer Amount is being transferred.

Pre-rolled products must receive their Flower Inventory via a Flower product. Pre-rolled products cannot restock their Flower Inventory.
