Adding new products one after another
« on: March 04, 2018, 11:59:49 AM »
I wasn't sure which category to post this in, as it could be support, a new feature request, or a customization issue.

This is more of an interface streamlining question.

When I have added a new product and have made my way through the tabs for that product and I'm ready to move on and add another product, I am forced to go back out to the product catalog list page because that is the only place the "+" button to add a new product lives.

Being forced to jump back out to the product listings page is an unnecessary extra step. What would be very helpful would be to have that blue "+" button to add a new product be visible within the individual product interface, regardless of which tab I was currently on, so when I'm ready to move on to the next product, I can do it from there.

Or if there were a way to have the "+" button also exist outside the product interface. For example, the icon row at the very top of the screen, is there any reason that one of the icons there couldn't be to add a new product? It would save time when working on the inventory.

Is there an easy way to accomplish this?

Thank you.

We are working on improving UI for new version 2.0 and your feedback is very important.

For now, to avoid clicks back and forth, you can have a listing page always open in one browser tab.
Click with pressing [crl] '+' button to open 'add product' page in a new tab.
Once done creating a new product, you can close this tab and go back to listing products tab.

That's the workaround I've been doing. Hopefully a persistent add products button can be part of the next UI.

Thanks.
