What is PracticeTrack?
Note: For login and API access instructions, scroll to the bottom of the page.
PracticeTrack is a complete User Interface (UI) simulator and
Application Programming Interface (API) emulator for use by all groups and individuals working
in the cannabis industry within states that mandate the use of Franwell's Metrc system.
As you may have already discovered, there is no room for mistakes in the Metrc
system. Anything you input into the official state mandated system is permanent,
including mistakes, which have to be backed out using inconvenient and sometimes
confusing forward-entry techniques.
Complicating matters, only those of you who have already received your permanent
operator licenses are allowed (and required) to use the Metrc system in the first
place, which leaves very little time or leeway for practice on your path to mastery.
PracticeTrack not only mimics the entire functionality of Metrc, but does so in a 100%
unofficial, unrecorded, non-permanent, and non-threatening environment where you are
allowed to become familiar with the use of the actual system, making any mistakes on, or
changes to, your data along the way, until you feel entirely confident with the changes
that you would actually input into the official Metrc system when the time is right.
PracticeTrack was built with the intention of being used on a daily basis in any of the
following settings, and more.
- Interactive Metrc training in a classroom environment.
- Interactive Metrc self-training at home or in the office.
- What-if usage scenarios by licensed operators.
- Formal record-keeping by unlicensed or temporarily licensed individuals.
- Third-party software development.

In the API, only the GET calls are currently activated. You can access the data
through a browser or any third-party application set up for the Metrc call routing.
To test a call in the browser, use this domain as the base, and append
the routing signature of the call. For example:
