This misses the amount you actually get when the order would be closed. I’d love to put this in here as well, but struggle to keep the UI clear. One idea might be a progress bar overlayed in the -/+ edit box. Another might be to highlight your missing amount in the progress bar differently (e.g. in red or purple). Or to show quantity + tolerance like in foodcoops/foodsoft, but just one editable number when you click on it.
Any suggestions here?
I like the different shades of blue - I hope I understand it correctly - it shows the total ordered by everyone in medium light blue, what you wish to receive in dark blue and (everyone’s?) tolerance in even lighter blue starting from right side of progress bar?
If I understood it correctly I think adding the tolerance in such way is really clever, This is something I was really missing.
Hmm perhaps it’s not entirely clear yet. The dark blue shows the total quantity in the final box that is not full yet - meaning this many were requested by members but can’t be fulfilled at this time. The lighter same of blue is the total tolerance in the final box that is not full yet. The even lighter shade of blue is the tolerance by all members that is available, though at this time unused (I made it lighter blue because it’s not supposed to catch the attention; while the earlier light blue still means that the member browsing the page could add something to fill the last box, the lighter blue invites no action merely gives information that one could order just a couple more without having to order a full box).
Does this make sense?
As for the actual amount - I can Imagine another column on the end right with ‘Current sum’ where you could see what you will pay for what you will actually get, maybe the amount of current units can be shown there too. Something likeÂ Â
Â Â Â EveryoneÂ Â Â |Â Â Â Â Â Current Â Â Â |
Â Â Â //////////////// Â |Â 2units â¬â¯1.19Â |
Hmm, not a bad idea. I think the current complexity of the member ordering interface is quite high already (some would be happy to have even more info, but I’d really like it to be usable without effort by many). I think your other idea would help in this direction (below).
I would also like to see the ‘current total’ in the left of the dashboard under [The top left order total]
Interesting idea! Perhaps adding a “~” symbol in front of the price when the member hasn’t secured the full amount, e.g. with a tooltip explaining how much he’ll get if the order would close now. This could be done both on individual articles and the total.
It can work nice to use colors just like in the ‘show order’ list in the user’s interface
So when a product is green it means user wil recieve what he ordered, if red then the order in not completer and yellow if he will recieve part of the total amount he ordered. It will give a nice overview while browsing through items.
Really nice idea. I’d go for it, perhaps combined with the extra tooltip info (or displayed in the popover info on the left).
What do you think?
Amsterdam, unexpected! If you ever want to meet up, just let me know. I’d be curious to see how you’re using Foodsoft. Also, there are four other foodcoops in Amsterdam sharing a cloud-based virtual host at order.foodcoopamsterdam.nl, sharing the cost of the virtual machine (until we find a sponsor, hopefully). You’d be welcome to join, in case you’re interested.
Sure I’d like to meet up one day. I really like this project, and the look and functionalities of this fork especially. As I said, we only foodsoft for our woongroep + friends, and at the moment we use it to order from wholesale so it is not a real foodcoop… It would be nice to grow into one one day… We are just making our second order via the software (we were using a very complex spreadsheet before) and I still only have it installed as development mode. It is the first Ruby application I installed, so I had some learning curve. At the moment we are hosting it on our own server, but as I said, we have very low traffic.
Great! I think most groups start with a spreadsheet, which at some point isn’t managable any more.
