Registering Past events

In this article, you will learn how to register several types of events in Apicbase, directly with a past date.

Every event represents an action in real life. A sale, an order, a waste, etc. However, it is not always possible to register these events in real-time, and therefore, there is a way to set a date and time when that real-life action actually happened.

  • This option is available for the following events: Counts, Creations, Wastes, Transfers, Manual sales, Receiving deliveries, and Picking and Shipping internal orders.
  • It will only be possible to register events in the last 6 months (180 days).
