KitBase Suggestions and Feedback / Re: Linking accessories to kits
« Last post by Admin Gary on December 10, 2017, 02:46:46 PM »
Hi Helmut,

Thanks for buying KitBase.

The 'with kit' feature is used to indicate that an accessory is in the box with a kit. That allows you to put together a planned build.

Because accessories share the same fields as kits (Kit Type, Name etc), you can use the filters to find compatible accessories for a kit.

For example if you had some accessories of the same type stored with kits and others in a drawer (with location specified), you could filter on the Kit Type, Real Manufacturer, Number, Scale etc. to find those compatible accessories.

Hope this makes sense.

I have a cross-reference feature planned, to allow references to be looked up for kits (similar to the above, using matching fields).
Perhaps I could make it possible to automatically look up compatible accessories using a similar method... That would save the step of linking and keep it separate from 'Location'.

I'll give it some thought.

Kind Regards,
Gary

KitBase Suggestions and Feedback / Linking accessories to kits
« Last post by HelmutRohrer on December 10, 2017, 01:00:10 PM »
Hi,
I recently bought KitBase 2 and entered all my paint stock.
Fantastic, now I know exactly what I have on hand (or not) !

In a second step I am now in the process of entering my kit stash.

Linking an accessory to a specific kit is simple enough.
But what I could not figure out so far is the following:

If You have more than one kit  of say a Saab Draken (Autrian Version, Swedish Version, ....)
and have several sets of masks for the canopy (same manufacturer, same part number..)
it would be great if You could link that (same) mask set to the different kits.
(additionally I have identical  PE sets that could be used on several of my kits, same Thing here)

It is no big requirement of course (and it did not work in StashMate either) but would still be a nice improvement.
Is there any chance to get that feature maybe in a future version of KitBase 2?

Thanks for a great product,
it really helped me much so far.

best regards

Helmut Rohrer

KitBase Suggestions and Feedback / KitBase 2 v2.0.7.0 Now Available
« Last post by Admin Gary on November 13, 2017, 05:21:49 AM »
This is a free update if you already bought KitBase 2 (or the upgrade).

The major feature is 'Import from spreadsheet (CSV)'. This allows you to import into any of the 'Main' tables.

Smaller improvements for existing users are:

* Create Desktop Shortcut for Database
You can create an icon that opens up your database.

* Default Tab
You can choose to show a table tab when the database opens, e.g. Kits and Accessories.

The above features together will allow you to open KitBase straight into your kit list, saving a couple of clicks.

You can download the new version from here:
http://www.kitbase.com/download.htm

Hope you find the new features helpful.

To keep up to date on KitBase 2 development, please follow or like the Facebook page:

I have just released a new version of KitBase (2.0.7.0) that has features to take you straight to the 'Kits and Accessories' tab on a specific database.

* Create Desktop Shortcut for Database
You can create an icon that opens up your database.

* Default Tab
You can choose to show a table tab when the database opens, e.g. Kits and Accessories.

The above features together will allow you to open KitBase straight into your kit list, saving a couple of clicks.

I posted some screens on Facebook:

Hi Arend,

I don't understanding what is happening there. Would you be able to email me via the contact page?

http://www.suisoft.co.uk/contact.htm

I'll need some screenshots / a copy of your databases to figure this out.

Thanks,
Gary

Hi Gary,
Sorry for the delay in replying. I upgraded to the full version and it still hasn't picked up my custom fields. Does that mean I must re-load all1,400 records that had custom fields on 1.4?
Kind Regards,
Arend

Hi John,

Sorry for the slow response. We have just returned from holiday - I didn't have any login details for the forum with me.

The CSV import feature isn't quite ready. Maybe share the CSV after I have released that?

Hopefully will be out in the next few weeks (free update).
