App reference with quantity

Comments

    Hey guys,

    This is possible if you use an app for sales and an app for products -
    - Make sure to have a relationship field from your sales app to products to select product A
    - Also have a quantity field for number of products A
    - Then use the calculation field to make a sum of the total sale

    Use the same format for product B,C etc. A relationship field, a number field to quantify number of products and a calculation field to calculate the sum.

    Then you need a final calculation field to take the sum of revenue for A;B and C.

    Hope this helps?

    Here is some help on the calculation field: https://help.podio.com/hc/en-us/articles/201019358-Calculations

    You can use this to calculation numbers from related apps.

    To solve this I made 3 apps, one for products, an other for projects and a third for the order.
    The product is the base stuff with the price / unit, the project reference the product and adds a number of products, and finally the order references the projects.

    But I agree I would need a reference quantity because I want to calculate the raw material used to make a product and if I need 3 apps to do this it'll be a kludge... I also want to track raw material usage to maintain an inventory and know when to restock.

    I have the exact same issue. I'm creating a orderplan and would like to add muliple products to one order. this can be done via Relation to my Product App. The issue i'm facing is: How can i add a quantity and price to every product which i've added to on single order.

    I also have this exact same problem. I need to be able to either lister the "product" several times to indicate the quantity. Separating the product into several app relations is not an efficient method.

    Same here, it would be really useful to add quantity sold for a product.

  • And same for me (

    Can somebody from Podio stuff help us solving this problem?

    because right now i just cannot implement this simple sales tracking crm system ...

    maybe there is some additional applications that makes possible to enter quantity of related items separately?

    Sara,

    This assumes that you know the number of products in a sale. In our case this can be anything from 1 to 500. What would be useful is a repeat group function.

    A selection of fields that are grouped, can be repeated and can utilise collect sum functions to calculate totals.

    John.

    Just checking in again.

    Will we ever just have the functionality to add the same "product" multiple times within a single relationship field?

    Would love to see this built in as well. The products app mentioned by Sara is a useful workaround, but it definitely feels clunky and non integrated. A secondary 'quantity' field which is associated with an original text field would be great.

    hello, 

    Is there any update on this? 

    I would need multiple times to prepare worklist, bill of materials, workfolw lists, offers etc and i imagine this as apps with reference to related products and a field with quantity (eventually calculation for prices but this is not my main point). 

    The main problem is that i need to be able to add products to the list dinamically as the number of items in the list can vary from 1 to hundreds! 

    Moreover i would need to group them in sessions and subsessions with subtotal etc.

     

    What would be a good implementation with podio?

     

    Thank you very much and keep up with this good solution!

    Lorenzo

    As per good relational database design, you are referring to a link table function. To achieve this in Podio you would need 3 apps: products, sales, and sales lines (or similar). Your sales item would reference your sales lines app, your sales lines app would reference your products app. In your sales lines app you select product and quantity.

    You could then use a calculation field in the sales app to then easily create a summary markdown table of the related sales lines app items.
