I’ve been doing that for a while - just not in Lauren’s presence!
What has been very helpful with the use of the off-site is CT’s capability of tracking multiple storage sites. I’ve been able to make custom reports that allow me to just browse what I have on hand when I’m looking for something to drink. And when it’s time to remove/add bottles in the off-site in the future, I can run another report that will tell me what is there - categorized by the numbered box that they are stored in!
In my VinoTemp at home, I use a matrix notation so I know exactly where every bottle is. In my off-site locker, I at least know which of the case boxes it is in. It’s a great system for lots of reasons… I am now constantly checking my collection by varietal, slowly whittling down the Pinot… I’m down from about 1/3 of my wines being Pinot do about 1/4… It’s also a very good system for remembering pending deliveries and keeping track of what and when things should be arriving.
I just moved my whole cellar into CT this week (with a lot of help from Eric). I am loving all the features, esp. the different ways of looking at my cellar. I am so impressed with how efficient CT is and all the user-friendly features.
Important point!! The level of service one gets from Eric… and I mean personalized service… is amazing. He was extremely helpful in getting my inventory into CT. And his attention to detail is superb. I’m very happy every year to make my small donation to him as a small `thank you’ for everything CT can do.
You know I’ve never taken it up but at some point I need to address my very out of date location information in CT. It is laborious to update every wine one at a time. Does anyone know of a way, short of bugging Eric, to do a mass update of location information, or get a page that lets you edit location info on more than one wine at a time?
the reports, intergration and tasting notes are very helpful.
currently using the reports to track inventory and budget since I am “re-ballancing” my cellar… bought way too much the past five years and have pared back my purchases… CT just quantifies what a fool I am [suicide.gif]
Thanks for the tip, that is certainly faster than what I was doing. Even better would be a page where you have a text entry box for each bottle instead of having to submit after each location was entered.
Is there any way to get more than 40 bottles listed per page?
