Batch Settlements Open Storage

The Batch Settle feature, located at Grain / Operations / Batch Settle, is designed to settle large numbers of Open Storage Scale Tickets at one time. One settlement contract will be made for each commodity/location.

Select Settle to settle all selected contracts or Scale Tickets, making them available to settle them automatically to OS Settlements.

Note: Selecting the Settle button does not print the settlements. It only settles the desired lines to Open Storage Settlements.

Batch Settlements are processed in numeric order but are still given individual Settlement numbers. This offers the ability to select a specific Settlement to view, delete, or reverse without reversing every Settlement in the batch.

Reverse a Batch Settlement

A Batch Settlement may be reversed in its entirety by using the Reverse button on the Settlement Batches window. To reverse a single Settlement within a batch, navigate to Operations / Settlements. Using Reverse is recommended if Settlements have been Grain posted.

Delete a Batch Settlement

An entire Batch Settlement may be deleted using the Delete button on the Settlement Batches window. A single Settlement within a batch may be deleted by navigating to Operations / Settlements. Using Delete is recommended if Settlements have not been Grain posted.
