Clarification on WineBee Terms and Definitions
Thought I might put pen to paper, as it were, and expand on some of the common terms and definitions used in WineBee.
- ID Number - each bottle added to WineBee has a unique ID Number. It's assigned automatically by the software and can only be reset by going to the Preferences and choosing "Master Reset of ID Numbers".
- Item Number - Not to be confused with ID number, Item Numbers are used to group identical bottles of wine. Example... If I have 12 bottles of 1997 Caymus Cabernet, each bottle would have its own ID Number but all 12 bottles would share the same Item Number. When you run a report in WineBee, the fields which show quantities of identical bottles are calculated based on bottles with the same Item Number.
- Bottle Status - Bottles in WineBee can have only 1 of 4 conditions... The order is quite intentional. The idea here is to follow the natural progression of wine collecting and cellaring. You want it (Wish List), you order it (On Order), you store it (In Storage), you drink it (Removed From Storage).
