How to include BBE dates, batch numbers and container codes/packaging IDs on invoices and delivery manifests

Displaying BBE dates on invoices

You can choose to include BBE dates, batch numbers, and container codes/packaging IDs on invoices by heading to SettingsOrder/invoice settings. Here, there is a checkbox option to Show the containers and batches delivered on invoices and delivery notes. by selecting this, further checkbox settings options will be presented.

  • Include each container’s code or non-returnable number and each smallpack’s Packaging ID.

  • Include each container’s batch number.

  • Include each container and batch’s best before date.

You can configure this to present the information you need by selecting the relevant checkboxes and selecting Save. Next time you raise an order, assign stock, and invoice the order, the invoice will include the information you have set here.

Displaying BBE dates on delivery manifests

You can also choose to display BBE dates on your delivery manifests; you can do this in SettingsDelivery settingsDelivery label/document settings and amending the Delivery manifest settings for Display assigned containers and batch number on the delivery manifests to either “Show on the delivery manifest for casks & kegs only” or “Show on the delivery manifest for everything (casks, kegs and smallpack)” depending on your preference.

Can required Batch numbers be shown on the “Delivery Items” section of the delivery manifest and not just on the individual orders?

Many thanks.

Hi James,

Thanks for raising this in the community! Currently, the batch numbers are only shown against the individual orders, as you identified, and there is no setting at present to have those listed in the items required section. However, if you would like us to look at adding this in the future, it would be well worth raising as a feature request.
