Getting to the batch page
In LUNA CMP, the most common types of batches are material batches, cultivation batches, packing, batches, and shipping batches. For materials, a batch is a group of like materials under one lot number. For cultivation, a batch is a group of plants of the same variety that are seeded/started on the same day, and will likely go through the steps in their life cycle at the same pace. This article will use a cultivation batch as an example.
Each batch has a unique batch ID that is displayed in green. You can see this batch ID on the production page, task page, compliance page, and even on other batch pages. Clicking on the batch ID anywhere in the platform will take you to the batch page. The batch page includes summary information about that batch, as well as a list of every task that has been completed as well as incomplete, scheduled tasks.
1. Batch summary
The batch info page displays a batch summary at the top. This includes the current quantity of batch units (e.g. trays, pots) and plants, the unique batch ID, the zone the plants are currently in, the start date and planned harvest date, as well as any custom fields the customer has added (e.g. Mother ID).
2. Materials used/produced
The batch summary also includes any materials used at any point in this batches life cycle (cuttings, pots, nutrients) along with the batch ID, or lot number, of those materials. You can click on the material batch ID to be taken to that material batch page for more details and full traceability. The batch summary also includes anything that was produced by this batch (e.g. trim waste, cuttings, yield measurements such as heads of lettuce).
3. Task List
There is an activity log of every task that has been completed, as well as every incomplete task that is scheduled for this batch. Every completed task has a filled in check box, every incomplete task has an empty check box. Simply click on the name of the completed task see more information about that task. To edit an incomplete scheduled task, simply click on the name of that task, adjust the information in the edit task modal, and click save.
4. Adding tasks to a batch
Once a batch is started, you often discover there are additional tasks that need to be added to the schedule of the batch. You can easily do this from the batch profile page.
One thing to note -- if you edit the schedule of a batch, that will not update other batches nor will it update the schedule on the template. To update the schedule on template, click here. Along the lines of the previous note, that new schedule on the edited template will only apply to batches started from that template going forward, not the existing batch that has already been started.
To update the schedule on a template:
Step 1: Click into the batch that you'd like to edit
Step 2: On the right side, above the task list, click the Add a Task button and select the type of task you'd like to add
Step 3: The standard task editor side pane will appear for you to enter the necessary details
Step 4: Click Save. The task now has been added to that batch and will appear in your task list as well.
5. Adding a task to a batch
In addition to clicking 'add a task' you can also click any of the task buttons at the top of the screen to add a task to a batch.
6. Download data in a CSV file
Click ‘download CSV’ to export the data shown on the batch page into a CSV in order to easily share your data with people who do not have access to your LUNA CMP account (e.g. auditors). Only the data shown on this page will be downloaded to a CSV. If you want to download data from multiple batches, go to the production page and click 'download CSV'.
7. Edit batch info
Click Edit Batch Info if you'd like to edit the Batch ID or any custom fields you've created (e.g. Mother ID).
8. Printing Barcodes
In order to complete a manual task (with the clipboard icon) simply click on the check box, fill in any required information, and click save.
Here are some articles that details how to complete the various types of specialty tasks.

The activity tab on the batch page displays an activity log of every completed task, including who completed it and where it happened. You can also add a photo or add notes to the batch page.
The documents tab allows you to upload files (e.g. pictures, notes, receipts) to your batch page.
If you require your plants to be individually tagged, talk to your Customer Success Manager about setting this up in your system. LUNA CMP can assign individual plant IDs to each plant in the batch. Customers who use individual plant IDs will see a Plants tab on their batch page. This lists every single plant ID you have in that batch. If you destroy individual plants, you'll also see a note next to the IDs for the plants that were destroyed. You can also print the plants individual barcodes from this page.
