In this article, we will summarize the actions that need to be performed in Metrc.
These should be completed in Metrc beforehand to correctly reflect your data in GrowFlow without error:
These actions must be done in Metrc after completion in GrowFlow:
These are entries that you would need to make in Metrc directly, even if you are also recording the actions in GrowFlow:
Importing Available and Used Metrc Tags
Metrc does not allow us to sync in new tags, so if you have purchased new tags and do not see them in your Available Tags list, you will need to import these tags using a CSV file from Metrc. Follow the article linked below to get those tags imported into GrowFlow:
Accepting an Inbound Transfer
When a supplier sends a transfer to you in Metrc, it will show up on your Transfers page in Metrc first! To accept this transfer you will need to receive it in Metrc after verifying that the tag numbers, quantities, and units of measure are correct. Then you will be able to navigate to GrowFlow and sync your account to bring in the packages to your Inventory Overview.
To accept an Inbound Transfer, navigate to your Licensed Transfers tab in Metrc. Then locate the manifest and click Receive on the Incoming Transfer's line item.
After clicking Receive:
Confirm all of the packages on the transfer have correct Tag numbers, quantities, and units of measure in Metrc.
If you need to reject any items on the transfer, you can check the box for Reject next to the line item.
Note: Metrc only allows you to reject the full quantity of a package. Partial rejections are not available. Once the order is accepted, navigate back to GrowFlow and run all Standard Syncs. If you are not sure how to Sync in GrowFlow, review the article linked below.
Once the order is accepted, navigate back to GrowFlow and run an Inbound Transfers Sync via Admin > Syncs.
Follow this article to see how to accept an inbound transfer in Metrc:
Promptly Reversing a Harvest
When you're connected to Metrc, GrowFlow's Undo Harvest function is disabled because Metrc controls the harvest batches. When you recognize soon enough that a harvest entry needs correcting, there are two things that you should do:
Discontinue the harvest in your Metrc account while the option is still available (48-72 hours) and you have not created waste or packages yet.
If the 48-72 hour window has passed, contact Metrc support and explain the correction you need to make.
See Reversing the Harvest of Plants to promptly discontinue your harvest in Metrc.
Processing a Rejected Outbound Transfer
To receive rejected items from outbound transfers returned to your Inventory in GrowFlow, you will first need to go into Metrc and process the rejection. See Processing a Rejection to process your rejected orders.
Oklahoma only - Metrc Workaround for Lab Sample Transfers
Metrc requires the type of test to be added to the primary lab sample at the time the sample is created. Until we can do that through the API, you need to create the samples in Metrc and transfer them with the reserve samples directly in Metrc. See OK Metrc: Metrc Workaround for Lab Sample Transfers for how to do this.
Reporting Destroyed Plant Batches
Metrc does not currently have a way for us to report your destroyed plant batches through the API, so you must upload a file to your Metrc account to report the destructions after they have been disposed of. To make this easier for you, we have created a workflow where you can record plant batch waste in GrowFlow and then export a CSV file to upload to Metrc. See Destroying Plant Batches for the full process of destroying in GrowFlow and then uploading in Metrc, or go straight to Step 8 in the article to see how to upload plant batches you have already disposed of.
Reporting Daily Plant Waste
Metrc does not currently have a way for us to report your daily plant waste through the API, so you must upload a file to your Metrc account to report the collected waste. To make this easier for you, we have created a workflow where you can record daily plant waste in GrowFlow and then export a CSV file to upload to Metrc. See Reporting Daily Plant Waste for the full process of recording the waste in GrowFlow and then uploading in Metrc, or go straight to Step 7 in the article to see how to upload the daily waste.
Licensees must ensure that all packages with zero quantity are being finished in Metrc. In doing so, this has the added benefit of removing finished packages from the Active tab in Metrc and replacing them in the Inactive tab.
In your Metrc account, you can easily identify packages with zero quantity in the Active tab by clicking on the Quantity column header to view 0g packages at the top of the list. Select each package, then click Finish.
Confirm the packages you have selected for finish, then click Finish Packages.
Reporting Plant Additives
Currently, GrowFlow does not report any plant additives to Metrc. If you are required by your state to show any plant additives, please enter that data directly into your Metrc account. If you have questions about how to do that in Metrc, you can consult the Metrc user guide or contact their support. The page in their guide will look something like this:
Oregon only - Circular Manifests
"Circular manifests" are allowed in Oregon. They need to be done partly in GrowFlow, partly in Metrc, and synced at certain times during the process. If you need information about this process, please reach out to us in the chat messenger on your GrowFlow page.
