    • Nested Locations & Tags

      In other database apps I have like Paprika or OmniFocus, I am able to nest folders. Nesting locations and tags (creating parent/child items) would be incredibly helpful in organizing things. For locations, I could do something like: "Basement: Pantry" or "Basement: Freezer" or "Non-Food: Cleaners: Disinfectant". I'm working with a lot of locations and tags at this point, and nesting would be a big help. Thanks!

      • Sub locations or multiple locations

        For example in my chest freezer I have a number of different bags, I would love to be able to mark which bag it is in, but also want to see what is in the freezer as a whole.

        This would both help me find items easily, and help identify if an item has been misplaced or accidentally used without updating.

          • Ability to edit multiple items

            This would be useful when I move multiple items to a new location (for example from long term storage to the pantry).

            It would also be good to be able to remove multiple items, for example disposing of expired items, donating excess items etc.

            • Sort CART by Tag(s)

              While shopping, it would be helpful if I could have the items sorted by the tag(s) I have assigned. This would put all the like items together (frozen. produce, plastic, etc, etc,) so I could pick up all the items needed from that aisle.

              • Need a way to see items removed over the last couple of days.

                Often packaging for items gets thrown away or left on the counter & no one remembers if it was removed or not. If I could look at what was removed over the last day or two it would solve that problem.

                  • List: Add Stores to sort options & add +/- for quick add/remove quantity

                    I would love to see the option to group items by Store on the List Screen.

                    I think all of the extra features are great, but I feel like it's missing the ease of quick entry.

                    Once the basic items are set in my database with a location and a store, I would like to do the following.

                    When we get a delivery from the grocery store or farmer's market, we would like to pull up the list of items from that store.

                    Using this list, we could quickly hit a +/- sign right in the list view to add…

                        Need something visual to show when the program is working on something.
                        Also, if I hit a button more than once it shouldn't open multiple windows. The first part would help prevent the second but may still hit multiple times by accident.

                        • Preparedness level

                          It would be really cool to know how prepared you would be in the event of something happening. I have seen this on another app, a free app however I do not want to enter my stockpile into another app that takes a lot of time.

                              Make some way to indicate or note that an item is low quantity or I've used a potion of a product. For example, many of my kids yogurts scan in as a 4 or 6 pack so that's 1 quantity. I would like to be able to show that I've used up the individual containers. I could put in each smaller pack as the quantity but I think that would get confusing as the inventory gets lower. Also, if I'm planning dinner while I'm sitting in the carpool line it would be nice to look and see that I still…

                                      • Meal planner with expiring items

                                        I would like the ability to take the items in my inventory and add them to a meal planner, so I know include my inventory in my meal plans for the week or month.

                                        • Have a csv import to inventory

                                          Have the csv file import directly into the inventory. The csv file that is already exported by the app could then be adjusted and imported back to the system
