Newbie Questions - Getting Going

jeremy
Is there any documentation out there in English? I've seen the video,
and the Getting Started in GitHub, and an English/Dutch PDF that all in
all give me what I need to jump in slowly, but I could use some good
documentation to move along a bit faster.

Who has experience with the NL fork and might be ok with answering some
questions? I'm interested in some features mentioned in the video.

I'm not a coder, but I am one of two people who wrote
BuyingClubSoftware.com. We have two things I am not sure I see in
FoodSoft but wanted to confirm or get comments...

1) between closing an order and placing it with the supplier, we like to
be able to allow a human to make changes to split items, as opposed to
not ordering any split case that does not fill. possible?

2) after the order arrives, if someone ordered a chicken, I want to
adjust the weight of the chicken so it calculates based on weight. is
that possible?

Thanks so much to anyone willing to help. This is great software and I'm
looking forward to seeing how it can work for some of the buying clubs I
work with.

Hi Jeremy,

Thanks for your mail, and glad to see that you found the basic documentation in English.
Foodsoft could use some more in-depth documentation (like there is somewhat in French).
Until we have that, the mailing-list would be a good place - which you've found already.

I can answer questions about the NL fork.

1) This is something on the roadmap in the future. I'd love to have a phase after closing an order and sending it to the supplier, where adjustments can be made. At the moment, foodcoops who needs this create a dummy user, who right before closing the order makes sure all the desired boxes are filled.

2) It is possible to change the amount members received. This is where the current_orders plugin helps (as shown in the video). In the main version, amounts can be changed (also partial amounts), in the NL fork there is an additional switch for entering amounts in number of packages or g/kg/l/ml too.

Interesting to see your interest in Foodsoft, even though you already seem to have somewhat related software.
Feel free to ask if you have more questions.

Best,
- Willem
