To start you must go to the materials master and click on "Add a new one":
Then you must configure each of the parameters as indicated here:
1.- Select in the menu: papers
2.- If you have configured your cost accounts in Configuration > Accounting, then select the one that corresponds.
3.- Choose the preferred supplier for this paper. This supplier will be suggested by default when ordering this material, although it will also be allowed to choose another one that provides this material.
4.- Select if the material is roll or flat sheet. Then, if both sides of the material are the same, choose "symmetrical" e.g., couche paper. In case the paper is different on each side, choose "asymmetrical" e.g. white backing cardboard.
5.- Select "By weight" if you buy the paper by weight, e.g.: couche paper. Choose "By sheet" for papers that are purchased by unit, e.g.: special paper.
6.- Select the sales unit of the paper, e.g.: reel, unit, ream, etc.
7.- You must load your current inventory information and your replacement policies. You can see a tutorial by clicking here.
8.- Select whether the cost is in local or secondary currency, and record the price per sheet of the substrate. In case the substrate is configured as a charge per Kg, then Twist will prioritize using the cost per kilo of the material instead of this unit entered.
9.- Choose if you want that in the text to appear in the quotation of the substrate, and if you want its grammage or its thickness to appear. E.g. Couche is by grammage, PAI is by thickness.
10.- Record the weight of the substrate as grams per square meter (gsm). If the substrate is characterized as "grammage", it will show this information to the customer.
11.- Record the thickness of the material in mm. This field will be used to estimate the time that a job will take in the cutting station. In addition, if the substrate is characterized as "thickness", it will show this information to the customer.
12.- If the printshop has an environmental certification, it can register the % of PEFC / FSC by default, that its usual supplier delivers of a certain material. Then, in the process of entering the material, this field will already be pre-loaded.
13.- Dimensions of the sheet delivered by the supplier.
14.- Define the number of possible cuts of a material. With the button (+), new cuts can be generated. With the button (magnifying glass), the system will automatically pre-load all the cuts that another material of the same dimension already has loaded.
15.- Substrate configuration per kg (sheets) or m2(rolls)
