This sounds like a good addition, and something we can use.
Here’s my feedback based on how we’d use it:
We work a lot with images inside the rich text field, which is how this view is likely to be the most useful for us. For our specific use-case, there could be things that made it more handy, but may be too specific to us.
Imagine this hierarchy:
└ order #1
└ item B
└ item C
└ supplier order #1
└ supplier order #2
└ item D
└ supplier order #3
item X we have image(s) + extra specs that is unique to this
item (so we can’t rely on fields for some specs).
How it is now
We have to navigate in and out of each
item in the
order to re-cap/show the customer while they’re here physically, or through screenshots sent digitally. The new panel view made this process a lot quicker already.
How we’d use Feed View as-is
We only have 1 customer in studio at a time, so we’d create 1 feed view.
This view would show posts of type
item, and some of the most used fields in them, like product category, product, quantity, price, and some other fields.
Now this view would show all items every
customer have made in every
order, ever. Not exactly what we want/use.
So from there we’d apply a client/global filter. Either to show items that belong to
Order or to
Now we have a feed of the items the customer have ordered, showing images and unique as well as common specs.
Things that will be hard to do
I can think of one thing when I tested it out.
When customer arrives, we would search for the customer in Fibery and open it. From that view we’d create a new
order. Inside the order, we’d create new
item's as they find things they want.
Now we have a complete order and would like to review it. The hard part is now going from this view to the feed view of all the items we created.
There’s two approaches to the whole thing as I can think of:
- Memorize the generated order name (Ordre #278: Martin Haslien) from where we left off above
- Navigate to Feed view
- Change the filter to show
item related to the memorized order
- Instead of creating ìtem
fromorder` view, we’d do it from the Feed view
- We’d still have to go Search → Customer → New Order
- We’d still have to memorize, navigate to Feed view, and change filter, then create from there
During the review part we’d still likely add/remove/change
item'. Therefore it’s nice that it does automatic relationships (new
item automatically uses filtered
order) based on filter like it does now when creating new ones.
