Data collected from a weighbridge can be imported in TAP FEED if the weighbridge software can export a supported file. After import, these weights can be processed to update the inventory of the ingredients accordingly. 
The WEIGHBRIDGE functionality can be found through [INVENTORY][WEIGHBRIDGE].
1.   WEIGHBRIDGE is a sub menu within INVENTORY. When there are open tickets present within WEIGHBRIDGE, an exclamation mark is shown. The exclamation mark disappears when the open tickets are either removed or processed
2.   After data is processed from the weighbridge, the data is shown under the open tickets. A list with the received ingredients is shown. 
3.   Tickets are moved to ‘ARCHIVE’ after they have been processed
4.   When there are multiple tickets for the same ingredients, the # tickets is displayed as well under the tab OPEN TICKETS
5.   The ticket ID is imported from the file and is shown here to differentiate between the different imports
6.   The supplier is imported from the file, but is not added to the list of contacts within TAP FEED. This supplier is used when the ticket is processed and save a link between the weighbridge supplier and TAP FEED supplier. When a previous linked supplier is linked to a different supplier, only the last link is saved.
7.   The gross weight is imported from the file
8.   The empty weight is imported from the file
9.   The net weight is imported from the file
10.   The date received is imported from the file to determine transaction date
11.   Weights of open tickets are only added to the inventory after the ticket has been processed. After clicking on the ‘process’ button, a new window opens where the correct details can be entered:
a.   Select which ingredient the weights received should be matched to
b.   Select the receive option that applies. Choose if it is a receive for an already entered order or if it is a direct delivery (without an order)
     1.   When there are open orders for the ingredient chosen, the option to receive the weight for that order(s) is displayed
     2.   When the (expected) deliver date of the order has expired, an exclamation mark is shown
     3.   Processing the weights from the weighbridge can also be done without an order through a direct receive. 
     4.   For the direct receive, a supplier from the contact list in TAP FEED needs to be chosen. When the correct supplier is not yet in the list, the ‘+’ button can be used to add a new supplier
     5.   After details are correctly entered, press on ‘Continue’ to process the weight for the selected ingredient
12.   Trash bin icon can be used to remove an open ticket. The ticket will then be removed and the weight of that ticket will not be saved to the inventory (it is also possible to remove multiple open tickets a the same time. Select the tickets to be removed and use the 'Delete selected' button to remove these).
13.   All open tickets of a ticket can be selected to be processed in one go
14.   The button ‘Process selected’ can be used to process all selected open tickets in one go with the same settings for the receive 
After tickets are processed, the tickets move to the tab ‘Archive’. 
1.   Details of the processed tickets are displayed here.
2.   Select the time range when tickets were received. This time range is set to show the last 14 days by default
3.   Expanding an ingredient will show the individual tickets that were received with their details
4.   After a ticket has been processed, the order linked order is shown here. This linked order # can be found on the TRANSACTIONS overview as well
The transactions linked to weighbridge tickets have an ‘i’ icon on the right-hand side and hoovering over this icon will give the details of the linked tickets. If the transaction is incorrect, this can be deleted or undone:
1.   A direct receive will show a ‘waste bin’ icon to delete the transaction. As soon as the transaction is deleted, the corresponding weighbridge ticket(s) are available to be processed again.
2.   A received order will show an ‘undo’ icon to undo the receive. The order will be open again and the corresponding weighbridge ticket(s) are available to be processed again.

6.   By default the systems date format is used. When a different date format needs to be used, please enter this as dd-mm-yyyy for example
