Roast with Artisan
Once connected, the plus icon is shown in blue and you can select the beans you roast from the stock popup in the Roast Properties dialog (menu
Roast >> Properties). The meta information of every completed roast will be automatically uploaded to the platform and the batch amount deduced from the beans or blend that were roasted.
Once you did some roast, you can put them together in a report. Under
Reports use the add button to define a new draft report over a certain period. Once happy with the report, finalize the report to be submitted via PDF or XML to your accounting, custom or tax office.
