User-defined fields to include in custom reports
« on: September 26, 2019, 03:30:03 PM »
There are some values that BeerSmith does not calculate that users would like to see in reports. There are also some people who would like to see the availability of simple math on tagged fields in custom report (e.g. estimated cooled post-boil volume = $DISPLAY_BATCH_SIZE+$TRUB_LOSS). It may be too much of a technical challenge to permit this, but I propose a workaround that might be good enough for most purposes. If BeerSmith had a set of user-defined fields that could be printed in custom reports with tags like $USER_DEFINED_1, then  users could fill those boxes with the desired numbers and have them print in the reports. Any math would still have to be done by hand, but it would make the reports cleaner. Right now I leave blank spots in my custom reports and fill them in by hand, which is a bit of a pain and seems rather retro for 2019.
