We also made one android app which track start, stop location and delivery path of Delivery Schedule using android phone app.
Capture images of delivery and send email alert to customer with images.
Offline tracking of delivery location and images in android app.
We would like to help in making generic app for delivery service.
I think Delivery Service Tour is a better word since Trip means “A Journey” and Tour is “A long journey including the visiting a number of places in sequence”. Which is the case with Delivery Service Tour, it makes multiple stops at various destinations.
I think you misunderstood a bit, So the main doctype is Delivery Service Tour which holds information about the tour which have multiple trips/stops, the child table is called Delivery Service Stop, which holds information for each trip/stop.
So I would also just call it “Delivery” but maybe to distinguish it from other features in ERPNext, we should call it “Delivery Service”. This implies that a special service is being undertaken (e.g. that the goods are being shipped with our delivery truck instead of DHL or UPS). So my vote would be for “Delivery Service.”
So the thing is that this is also not a delivery itself, it is a “Delivery Tour” which is on a certain date with certani “Delivery Stops”. So Either “Delivery Service Tour” or “Delivery Tour” and “Delivery Service Tour Stop” or “Delivery Tour Stop” for the child table.
So when we think about DocType naming we have to think about what the user creates. Does the user really create a “Delivery Service” when he clicks new or does he create a new “Delivery Service Tour”? I think he creates the tour / trip / route of specific “Deliveries” which will be delivered in “Delivery Service Tour Stops”.
Sorry It’s not about the name really, its just to be very clear about what we “create” when we click the “new” button.
For Naming, We don’t have any issues.
In new version of ERPNext we can easily rename any doctype name using custom translation.
There are lots of developers already developed solution for fleet management and delivery tracking, I think pull request/ github issue is best to discuss this, where we will get ideas from other developer.
Can you ask your developer to put initial pull request to discuss this?
