SpreeShipmentTimeSlots

Spree shipment time slots extension:

This extension enables easy grouping for orders based on time slots.

Motivation

Many stores deliver their orders on a daily basis (i.e grocery stores) and in large batches.
Spree gives control over each individual shipment but assumes the shipping is done by external
companies that ship each order to it's owner.
Many stores deliver their goods in predefined shifts (i.e sunday 10am - 2pm, sunday 4pm - 6p, monday 11am - 7pm), spree_shipment_time_slots extension allows planning of these shifts and predefines shipment_time_slot objects which can then be selected by the end-user upon checkout.

Notes

  • English locale file needed
  • Only works with checkout confirmation step enabled (otherwise user won't be able to select a time slot)
  • If an order was already associated with a ShipmentTimeSlot object, and the day plan was changed for that day, new ShipmentTimeSlot instances will be created but the old object will not be deleted and the order will still be associated to it.
  • Shimpent instances won't validate the presence of shipmnet_time_slots, this means that a user is able to complete the checkout if no there are no time_slots available it is up to the manager to take care of it from there. (This is by design but maybe should be changed?)
