The production portal is the one-stop shop for production managers using HOVER to produce a project. It's where you can place orders, export materials and labor lists, and review project details.
Editing a materials list in the production console is easy. You can edit details for each line item like selecting colors, changing the supplier branch name, or even adding line items. All your changes will be saved as you make them.
Here are some of the most common edits and some other best practices:
Editing Line Items
Each line item can be edited by clicking the "Edit" button, which opens the edit menu.
Adding or changing material color:
Available options will appear on a drop-down menu for each line item within the "Edit" icon. If you need to add or change a color selection, just click on the drop-down and select from the available options.
Color variants can also be added manually by choosing Custom Color in the drop-down menu:
Adjusting material quantity:
The calculated material quantity will be pre-populated for you. The field is a text box, so you can click on the current quantity and type to replace it within the line item's edit pop-up.
NOTE: Never change the quantity to 0.01. This will cause an error in the system.
Remove a line item
Unchecking the line item will remove the Line item from the downloaded PDF and the Order.
Add a new line item
Click the "+ Material" icon in the bottom left corner of the Production Console to add a new item. Fill in the relevant fields:
There are more things you can update and change using the same drop-down and text replacements that should be easy to identify when you're on the production page.
