Example App: Purchase Orders

04/24/2013 Posted by Brandon

We’re starting to add more compex apps to our example catalog that show off some of Knack’s advanced features.

First up is a purchase order app. Staff can log in and manage vendors and products and submit purchase orders. Reports can be run on weekly totals and vendor and item totals.

Some features the purchase order app is using:

  • Equations: Item totals are automatically calculated from the quantity and item price
  • Formulas: Totals are summed for each product and vendor.
  • Form Rules: The logged in user is assigned via a form rule as the author of the purchase order
  • Reports: Reports are run for weekly totals and vendor and item totals.
We’re planning on starting on some project management and CRM apps next.
