The following items have come out of this backlog to be picked up by OFN Australia team for development:
1. Product load speed still too slow on Stroudco shopfront on UK production
Status: Refer to the GitHub issue comments trail
2. Orders show VAT figure based on master price (excluding mark-up)
Status: Pending testing by Nick. Refer to the GitHub issue comments trail
3. Angularising Single Order Index Page
Status: In backlog, to be picked up in Feb or March.
4. Customer Tagging and discount functionality
Discourse #505 GitHub #406
Status: Discussion held with Sara on requirements and best approach for this. Sally, Rob and Danni continued this discussion in terms of the minimum initial piece of work to be done, and what future development could be. Rob to write up on the Discourse wishlist wiki page his view of this first piece of work by Friday morning for review by Sally and Danni, and to then go out to the wider audience for input. See the Discourse page for further updates on this.
5. UK push_to_staging fails if there is no change
Status: Discussion occurring between @pmackay and @maikel and @oeoeaio around this. Have asked Rob and Rohan to respond to this on Thursday, so should have a further update by then.
As we discussed in our last Skype catch up, I’ve created this page for you guys to add requests for work from OFN AU. The 2 items currently in our backlog are listed above with the link to GitHub for each. I’ll be updating the status on these items, and managing any new ones that you add to this page as we pick up and deliver them.
Let’s chat about how we can use this page in our next Skype catch up!
On the Skype today the Customer Tagging and Discount Functionality was mentioned along with the Wholesale functionality that @Sara needs for Tamar.
In the past customer tagging has been talked about in this way including wholesale functionality ie a customer might be a volunteer and get a volunteer discount, a member and get member rates, or be wholesale and get wholesale rates. The difference in functionality would be that for wholesale customers they would need to have different products appear in the shopfront. This would mean that variants might also have a tag associated with them and that users would see a different products in the shopfront depending on their tag.
I wonder if it would make sense to include these pieces of work together? Basically Tamar has budget for the wholesale work and OFN UK has budget for the tagging work so would it make sense for these pieces of work to be looked at in February as a single piece? It is also something that I’m sure people in Australia and internationally want so would it be something that the Aus team could prioritise in Feb?
Feels like all of the following could be covered by this and with the two budgets we have available we might be able to fund it all?
I 100% agree with your thinking on how we handle the development of wholesale and tagging. It makes complete sense to combine these two things and have the AU team work on them in February, firstly because the two are so intertwined, and secondly because the AU dev team can hit the ground running with no learning curve on the code base. Was speaking to @oeoeaio about this very thing this morning and we both felt it was something the AU team would be able to do.
The only other UK things we have on the Feb backlog at this stage is the data migration that still needs to be scoped ([discussion around the migration requirement is here] (Bulk import of products)). Is this still something that you guys require the AU dev team to scope out and is it a priority for Feb? If yes, then I’ll add it to this wiki page as an item. If not, then that leaves us free to work on the wholesale/tagging piece instead (ie. scoping it out with you guys and then developing it).
@pmackay the only answer I can give at this stage is “I don’t think so”. Which isn’t much help, I know
Reason: I’m not across how github tagging/labels are being used, and I’ve got an action on me from the last global hangout session to review the labels and write up how to use them. So I’ll be doing that over the next couple of weeks, which will give me a better understanding of how this page will work alongside of GH and labels and will try not to duplicate effort across both tools.
UK staging is our responsibility. If you’d like to test something then you need to ask myself or Paul to deploy to UK staging for the specific bug you are looking to test. Best to give an idea of when you are planning to test as we often have to deploy to test other things. Then we can ensure that the changes are on UK staging for your testing.
