Improved Feature

flowerSoft will now allow you to have an unlimited number of UPC codes for any inventory item code.
In other words, if you buy the same item from different vendors and they each have their own UPC code for the same item, you can now record all the UPC codes under one inventory item code instead of having to have a separate item code for each different UPC code.

Or if you have a general inventory item, such as flower seeds, which may have different UPC codes depending on the type of flower seed and you only care to know how many packets of flower seeds you sold and don’t care about which type of flower seeds you sold, you can have one inventory item code for flower seeds and link as many different UPC codes to that inventory item as you want.

All UPC codes linked to an inventory item code will deduct from the units on hand of that inventory item when scanned during order entry.


Tip #253 – Understanding Negative Reference Numbers

Tip # 253
Understanding Negative Reference Numbers

I am sure most of you have noticed negative transaction numbers somewhere along the line in flowerSoft, but most of you may not know why those reference numbers start with a minus(-) sign.
They start with a minus sign to help flowerSoft identify those transactions.
For example, all finance/rebilling charge records, as well as closing date records, will have a reference numbers that start with -7
If you have entered a debit to an account, that debit will start with a reference number of -9
For example, if you entered a starting balance for an account, you will see that debit as a -9 if you look at the transaction history for the account.
Here is an example…

Reference numbers starting with -8 are used for some types of credit, such as when you waive small account balances.
Reference numbers starting with a -5 are used identify overpayment records.
Reference number -111 is used to identify voided records.
