Hi Alan, I sent you my feedback by mail some weeks ago and indeed many of the requests were followed up. Thank you for that :)

No problem! I really need/seek feedback and requests to make this application include everything all soapmakers need.

I may not have seen if this is possible or not (if not, then consider it a request!) — is there a way to expand on the inventory and batch record to include items other than soap? Like candles, blams, lotions, etc? Thanks!

We do have that feature- you can create ‘non soap’ recipes and use the inventory and batch feature the same way.

As a backup to potential disaster (no internet for days/weeks, your servers go down etc.), can you add the ability to export? It's one of the reason's I'm reluctant to give up all the spreadsheets I currently use for everything except soap.

I have not been soaping as frequently as I have been. Last night, I tried tweaking some of my old recipes and I found it tedious to print a copy compared to the previous hit print and voila - recipe is printed! It wants me to save and what comes up just confused me. Had to email to myself and print from there. That is one observation.

The second observation - I wanted to use similar recipe and change the additives and it would not save using a different name. Then, when it finally saved, I got negative liquid amount. The amount required for the additives were so much more than what I normally need, unless I am using way below the standard.

Third observation - I tried to use the rescaling feature and input the dimension of my mold - 6 x 10 x 30 cm and the result was way different from my expectation. I have used this mold before for 4 kg of oil and just use individual molds for the overflow. I am not sure where I went wrong.

Is there a guideline on how to use the calculator instead of going through posts? Once I get past my initial frustration, I will probably be OK. Just need to use the app more.

Thanks Alan for your help!

Hi Alan
Thanks for your reply. What about my other observations. In addition to the second observation, I reentered my oils and other info and I got a different water requirement. Not sure what happened there and I am now hesitant to use the calculator. Don't even know what a negative water requirement means.
Hoping for your quick reply as usual.
Thanks

Thanks Alan. Just weary about the result. At the moment, I am just comparing with other recipes to make it work. I might actually use other calculators to double check.
