I Agree with the methodology of explaining processes not features.
If I want to implement an ERP I have a specific requirement to fulfill(payment for example). A guide, step by step, showing me which doctypes I need to use to complete my assignments is more useful than manuals explaining each doctype.
Don’t get me wrong, we need manuals for each doctype however I don’t think they are required for the initial implementation and we are lacking those materials.
Well, I have a process document I created for installing ERP on a VPS including setting SSL and swap etc… Then I have adding a few fields and changing naming series to import some existing supplier data…
That is mostly redundant as we are starting from scratch… you could go ahead if you have time and start working on some sections, but you kinda need to start from the beginning… in which case, you could create the document???
Thanks for the great job you’re doing. It’s really appreciated. Any chance you could add mysql/mariadb optimization steps to this list? I found that many newbies leave the default configuration and it works at first, and then down the line database queries force sytem slowdown and sometimes system freeze.
At the time of posting they were placeholders since we had no budget!
However the wait should be eased this year. We are currently forging ahead with Frappe to create a new set of dev videos for dev. Those will be 10 for now.
For the guide: Our team have storyboarded the first 10 videos of ~200 due May 2021 of many ERPNext user topics, most of them shown on the guide above. We will publish them in spanish (as that is the most needed language) on this channel but I will try to find a way to replicate them ASAP in english (maybe even simultaneously). We aim on 50 per month starting february. Will be uploading them first 5 days of the month.
I suggest to have a wiki or github style site to be able for users to fill-in and edit a tutorial topic. This is a draft for people to dump a document. Then others may edit or revise it.
This site may have editors to see if the content is proper.
After the topic is full, complete, and correct then the editor can upload the content to a fix tutorial site.
