I’m willing to look into this but I am not sure what the best approach would be. Are we talking about just having an exportable history. An in-app bar chart showing item usage over a period of time with, say, the top 20 items? Give me some ideas in the comments section or through the support email.Chip commented
As to how to display it, my thought would be to show a ratio of minimum inventory/yearly consumption.
Perishable vs stable items could be monitored as a fraction or multiple of that ratio as it pertains to their respective shelf life's.Chip commented
First, I think the time frame should be one year. That would account for any seasonal fluctuations (e.g. more frozen or canned vegetables in the winter if you eat from a garden in the spring/summer/fall).
Second, I see no other way than to base this on removing items from inventory, and more explicitly an "incident" of removing item/items from inventory. Upon the second incident of removing an item/items from inventory, you should be able to prorate an estimate for yearly consumption (i.e. numbers of items per a time period). Show that as an estimate, and continue to show and update that as an estimate until a full year of data is collected. From then, use the past twelve months as a more definitive answer.
Third, I would like to see all items with this.
Total calories will be available with the CSV report as of version 3.5. A new feature, item groups, will be introduced in this version. I will look into showing calories by group at this point.
This will start being rolled out in version 3.5 (ios). The latest price will be provided in the CSV report and you’ll be able to create a report from there.
Look for item groups in version 3.5.
