Poor memory sometimes gets me: "did I or did I not adjust the stock inventory" for that 3Kg of Beans I have ready in the bucket for roasting
(been overnight stored warm to get to 15c) taken from the freezing storage area.?
I dont seem to be able to see what the last adjustment was, if the software held this last change I personally would find that
really useful, thanks..

By default, Roastmaster will create a new bean lot every time you ADD inventory. Unless you “cancel” the new bean lot, or turn the feature off in preferences, you’ll have a record of every time you add inventory. You can see those by tapping the “Bean Lots” cell of the Bean details view.

But your question is about roasting…No, there’s no way to see the individual debit entries that Roastmaster makes to your inventory, simply because it’s designed to be automatic. I’m not against adding something like that - just never saw the need.

Whenever you add a roasted item in the roast console or edit its weight, RM will debit the “weight” amount from the applicable beans’ inventory automatically. If you change that weight later, switch the roasted item to a different item, or delete the roasted item from that roast altogether, then the amount is credited back to the original bean(s), and then debited from the new item if applicable. In short - it tracks the changes as you go.

So, unless I’m misunderstanding your question, you shouldn’t have to keep track of that yourself. If you configured the roast, and it has a bean or blend tagged with a weight, then that would essentially serve as the record - you’d know that it has already been debited from your inventory automatically.

Let me know if I’m misunderstanding.

Hi Danny,

You answered the question in the first part, my question rambled on sorry, and was only meant to be about seeing a  record of stock
reductions.
Like  you  say when I add inventory the window appears 'Bean Lot' i suppose you can give it a lot number and there will be a record,
however if i - subtract stock a window doesn't show (as you know), it might be useful to have a window that appears on stock
reduction so that you can record something
e.g. Customers name or simply stock correction. Overall I'm very happy with this APP and stock Control
