Location Functionality for California Microbusinesses

Updated 2 months ago by NIr Malchy

What is the update?

METRC published their new functionality for California Microbusinesses on the METRC CA Bulleting 2021-008 Location Functionality for Microbusinesses.

Since you already use Areas and sometimes Locations in Flourish, we will ensure that the Areas you set to your plant batches, plants, harvests, and packages sync to the METRC Locations.
