    I predict people will want to start analyzing deliveries, production, etc

    Honestly I thought the model S process was a bit messy. The forum posts and self-edit spreadsheet were support intensive and had issues.

    This is just a new thread to bring those interested in the process to start sketching something BEFORE Bonnie is driving away in her sig#2 going "woooooooo" and mere mortal people scramble to do spreadsheets, forms, etc

    Agree. Perhaps something similar to the firmware tracking is in order (web pages)?

    One can do a lot with a simple google form and some analysis in the backend. One form per relevant event may yield enough time series samples to do some inter and extrapolations

    Of Course the info won't be as critical given the possibly very fast ramp up. Unlike the S, it's not like we are all cheering for it to take off week by week.

    There's to be a lot of new stuff on Model X vs Model S; ramp up could likely be faster than the S but quite possibly not something we would classify as "very fast".

    So I've decided to take this on. Looking for some beta testers to test the completed registration and security portion this week and next week to test the completed dashboard features to date. As we get some example data in during the testing, I'll prototype some reports for feedback and do them the week following.

    Features in scope:
    • Login (completed)
      • Audit Trail of invalid attempts (last displayed to use including last successful login)
    • Registration - Validated email registration (completed)
      • Users must use a valid email
    • Password Reset - via email link (completed)
      • Users must use a valid link to reset password
      • Password change request logged
      • Password change email notification
    • Conversion of TMC/TM reservations data (partially completed - TMC only so far up to post 343 - March 13 2013 to test conversion script)
      • Registered users can claim an existing reservation to make it an order (saves a little time/data entry)
    • Dashboard
      • My Reservations (can turn into an order including claiming a Model X Tally statistic record)
      • My Orders (from order date onward)
      • Reservation Graph (to do)
      • Order Graph (to do)
      • Delivery Reports
      • Order Reports
      • Data Extract

    Nice to Haves (maybe later/depending on interest).
    • "Remember Me" (so you don't ever have to log in) -> site does allow browser saving of user/password.
    • Account avatars and pictures of "as configured" and/or finally delivered
    • Range and Road Trip logging (towing impact analysis)

    Open to feature requests and ideas.

    Cheers,
    Paul

    I'm happy to help. If it's breakable I can probably break it.

    Progress Update...

    Version 1.3 Beta TEST was just released to the beta testers. Its now at a fully functional stage for reservation tracking. Just the design studio/configurator/some reporting left to do.

    We could use one or two more testers and if someone is really board.... two things:
    • help gather some reservation data from TMC/TM Tally Threads
    • suggest and mockup some reports

    Hopefully this will be up before the real design studio... its shaping up that way!

    Cheers,
    Paul
