Discussion on Kits

Hello product committee - I hope you enjoyed your weekends. TW is undertaking work on “Kits” for Mozambique beginning on Dec. 28.

Kits are essentially a grouping of products. A kit is tracked as an item on stock, and shipped as a single item, but gets unpacked to update other products’ stock-on-hands.

We have come up with a couple of concepts on how to model the kits functionality, and whether it would apply to core or custom. We’re at the point where we are able to discuss some of this analysis to get input from the community. Would it be possible to include this as part of our call this week, or would you prefer a separate call time?

Moving forward, is this the correct way to bring up questions on specific features?

Thanks and speak to you later this week,

Renee

Hi Renee,

My opinion is if you believe we can cleanly cover a discussion around kits in under an hour, lets add it to the standing committee. Otherwise, I would be in favor of doing a separate call to discuss more in depth.

Moving forward, everyone is free to append items directly to the wiki page agenda.

Cheers,

Thanks Kevin.

I think I’d like to open the subject during today’s call to gauge where and how the conversation should move. Let’s make sure to time-box it so that we don’t take up too much of our standard call time. We can follow-up with a separate conversation after.

For everyone’s reference, attahced is a working doc where we’ve been capturing some assumptions and approach options.

Thanks and speak to you soon,

Renee
