Wesley Brown (10 min)

New Page for Feature Backlog: Feature Backlog

  • Perhaps add more detail to the features

Current Suggestions:

  1. Configuration Assistant
    1. Simon: User profile management is difficult right now. Assisting in this area would be helpful
    2. Simon: Visualizations of supply lines, nodes, etc
  2. Stock Management - UI Caching
