I have an app that tracks the status of orders, basically an order has certain steps:
- Order Placed
- In Queue
I currently have it set so that each time a new line is created the only available action is to “move it to the next step” and then it will log the date it was moved to the next step.
I was wondering if there is a more “visual” way to do this, (I was thinking of a slider with different positions) or maybe a table or chart where as the order progresses you can see a bar filling up or something thats not just a list of numbers.
There’s two things here that I want to elaborate on:
Is there a way to assign a value to each of the steps? I can imagine doing a chart but I want to make sure Order Placed has a value of 1, how can I set this?
When I display these as a list, how can I order them in the step without showing the number, how can I make the list put “Order Placed” at the top before “Assembling” (which would be the descending, alphabetical order)
