  1. Multi-pack items.

    As some items come in multi-packs how do I handle keeping the inventory count correct? For example microwave popcorn bags can be purchased as a 3 pack, 6 pack or 10 pack all with different bar-codes but no bar-code on the individual bags. For now I created an iGroup and add the number in the pack to the group. I'll just have to keep in mind when it goes into the cart to reduce the number again.

    I just got this app yesterday and have been adding things and getting familiar with all the features. I hate to suggest a…

    • Faster Expiration Date Entryt

      Radial date entry, replacing stock interface on android. 12 sectors for month, 30ish for days, etc. Nest them to make quick date entries. Video games have made use of radial menus for years now.

      • Item without iGroup

        I would like to see a way to determine if any of the items do not have an IGroup. I find it easier to use the IGroup view to see what I have instead of the list view. However, for the items that I forgot to tag an IGroup with will not be to show up in the view. It can be shown as items in the uncategorized IGroup or a report that shows which IGroup is tagged with the item. Thank you.

        • Exporting CART list

          So I have my list and I'm ready to shop 20 items on Walmart.com or Amazon. To be really useful app MUST have export or link feature to export the items somehow to a shopping list at specific online stores. Obviously may not be important when actually physically shopping in a store, but I now shop online 85% of the time! Please look into. App would be PERFECT!!

          • Scan to Transfer / Move

            Adding a option to the scan screen for "Transfer" would be great. For example we often move items from the cold cellar to the kitchen pantry or from kitchen pantry to fridge.

            • Include iGroup on the CSV report.

              As it says above, please include the iGroup on the CSV export.

              • Please allow us to associate a tag with an Ingredient Group

                This is similar to placing items into item groups but what I'm looking for is a sorting and reporting function that allows us to establish a tag like "Dairy" and then every item or ingredient type, like "Low-fat Milk" and "Half & Half" can we sorted together. (This is not about specific product brands, but like item types being together.)

                • Bardode for non-commercial items

                  It would be useful to be able to create a barcode in P&P using the identifying number that P&P generates. I did so offline and it works well. We prepare and freeze a lot of food, so being able to use a standard description for repeat items would make entry much easier. There would be no need to actually tag each item. It would be sufficient to have a printed page with the barcodes and item names, would could be scanned each time the item as added to inventory.

                  • Ability to add fractional quantities for items which are used gradually.

                    Add a fractional component (dial, similar to expiration date?) to quantity -- ⅛, ¼, ⅓, ⅜, ½, ⅝, ⅔, ¾, ⅞. This would allow for keeping track of items used gradually -- flour, rice, dried beans, etc. For bulk items, it might be useful to add unit of measure as well -- pounds, cans, boxes, cups, grams, etc.

                    • The two things this needs to be perfect (for me)

                      If you could include these two things, it would be the perfect prepper app!
                      1) Ability to have custom fields (would be nice)
                      2) The ability to export to a printable format would be awesome for the clipboard.

                      Found you by accident, but this is exactly what I have been looking for to keep me organized!

                      • Brand or Manufacture Name

                        Some of the item descriptions get very long and I've noticed some of the manufacture names have been overly abbreviated, if I didn't have the item in hand I would not have been able to figure out the manufacture.

                        I would suggest a separate field for the brand/manufacture name.

                                      • 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!

                                          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.
