First, it’s important to note that there are two “Room” types in GrowFlow: inventory rooms and plant rooms. Plant rooms are rooms associated with the growing process, whereas inventory rooms hold all of your lotted inventory, and GrowFlow helps you manage all of your rooms effectively. However, in this article, we’ll be focusing on Plant Rooms exclusively.
To read more about inventory rooms, which are the rooms holding your inventory items, please check out our help article on inventory rooms here: https://help.getgrowflow.com/en/articles/491259-leaf-data-inventory-rooms
Now let’s take a closer look at the “Plants” tab on the Room page in the Admin section of GrowFlow.
1. Locating your Plant rooms
To locate your Plant Rooms, go to your Admin > Rooms page and click on the ‘Plants’ tab.
2. Adding a new Plant room.
To add a new plant room, simply navigate to the upper-right section of your Plants tab, and click the “+New Plant Room” button.
A new line will appear in the table, along with blank fields that need to be filled out.
Enter the room name and designate a room purpose from the drop down. You’ll notice that you can choose to designate your plant room for clones, vegging plants, flowering plants, drying plants, or you can even choose to leave it “Unknown” if you don’t have a specific purpose for the room. You also have the option to add any notes you would like to make about the room. Once you have all of your information entered, go ahead and click the ”‘Save” button in the right hand column to save the room.
3. Add Plant tables to a Plant room
GrowFlow also helps you create tables within rooms for better inventory management during the growing process. These tables can represent actual physical tables your plants are being stored on or even just represent a designated area in your plant room that better organizes your plants.
To add a table(s) to a plant room, simply click the blue ‘+’ button in the most left hand column of a plant room.
This will expand an area below the room, where you will click the ‘Add Table to Room’ button.
Now, just fill out the fields for the Table name, and optionally any helpful notes about the table, then click the “Save” button in the right hand column.
Please note that you can also access your tables from the Grow > Plants page as well by using the Table filter:
What do these other columns on the Rooms page do?
Toggle Room Type - This button/column allows the user to change the room type from being designated as an Inventory room to a Plant room or vice versa. For example, when setting up your rooms, if you make a mistake on the room type, this lets you correct it quickly without having to delete it and then recreate it as the other type. To do this, just click the “Set” button located next to that specific room.
Default star - The “Default” star-shaped button sets a default room that GrowFlow will use when you are creating or promoting in the Grow screens. Please note that you can only set one default room per room purpose-type.
Room IDs - These room IDs are simply the last characters (after the period) in Leaf Data’s code that identifies that room in the Leaf Data system.
4. How to delete a Plant room.
If you need to delete a plant for whatever reason, you can do so on the Rooms page as well.
Simply click the orange “Del” [Delete] button in the far right hand column, for the room you wish to delete. A dialogue will appear asking you to confirm this action.
Please note that you cannot delete a room if there is something in that room!
This means if there are indeed still plants in the room you want to delete, then you must first go over to the Grow > Plants page of GrowFlow and use the Room filters to filter down to the room you want to delete.
Once you filtered the results to only items in the room you want to delete, select all those plants, and click the ‘Move’ button.
Select a new room from the drop down in the dialogue, and confirm the move.
Then, back in the Rooms page, you will be able to delete the room.
That is what you can do from the Plant tab on the Rooms page of the Admin section of GrowFlow! Doesn’t it feel good to have everything organized?
