Typica: Software for Coffee Roasting Operations

Typica Dashboard

If you expand the main navigation window horizontally, you'll reveal a dashboard that provides several displays that update as you work with Typica. If your screen large enough, continuing to expand this window will result in displays getting laid out horizontally in up to 5 columns.

Reminders

One of the limitations of the Reminders feature in Typica has been that you needed to open the report to see if any tasks have come due. With the dashboard, a reminders display will appear when a reminder is coming due in the near future. Use this to keep track of necessary maintenance tasks or staying on top of supplies that need to be ordered.

Roasting Schedule

If batches have been scheduled for roasting, these will appear in the dashboard.

Production Trends

This table shows roasted coffee production over several time periods (today, last 7 days, last 30 days, last 90 days, last 365 days) and the same number of days immediately prior to each of these along with the percent change between these.

Latest Batches

Waiting on a coffee to get roasted? See the most recently roasted batches at a glance.

Latest Out of Stock Coffees

This sections shows the most recent coffees that are no longer available to roast along with the date each of these became unavailable.

Least Available Coffees

Typica projects the availability of green coffee based on the rate at which it has been used. The Least Available Coffees display shows the coffees that are projected to run out soonest along with the current stock levels for each of these.

Unused Coffees

This section lists coffees with purchase entries that have not yet been roasted. When using other dashboard displays to see what coffees should be ordered, the unused coffees section can be checked to see if you've already brought in replacement coffee.

Most Roasted Coffees (Last 28 Days)

Quickly see what you roast the most.

Least Roasted Coffees (Last 28 Days)

Similarly, you may be interested to see your least popular coffees.

Customizable

If you know a little bit of HTML, JavaScript, and SQL, you can see how these displays are implemented and create new ones featuring the information you find most relevant when opening Typica. This is a very new feature first implemented in Typica 1.9.0 so suggestions for making this more useful (especially if they come with code) are welcome.
