To make larger quotations more readable and easier to understand, I like to group the numerous items in sections.
Each section then has a heading, such as “Hardware”, “Software”, “Services”, “Sweets” and what have you.
How can this be done?
So the item list looks kinda like this:
- Super SSD, $1,000.00
- Super RAM, $2,000.00
- Super Algo, $3,000.00
- Super Query, $4,000.00
- Reeses Peanut Butter Cups, $5,000.00
- Hershey Bar, $6,000.00
Custom print formats are all done via Jinja (Jinja — Jinja Documentation (3.1.x)). If you assign the items to appropriate item groups, it’s just a matter of looping through the quotation items to sort them by those groups.
good point! Yet it would be great not having to use item groups for sorting or headings, like so:
Quotation for office skyscraper equipment
- 20 speed gates
- 40 rfid readers
- 60 body scanners
- 800 screens (eight for each investment broker)
- 200 workstations
- 100 water coolers
- 300 office chairs
- 4000 uniball pens
- 1 conference table the size of a tennis court
Item Group was just an example. You can sort the items however you want.
thanks Peter! I will delve into it
