Ripstop by the Roll have a large community of makers who create all manner of wonderful things. They ask for submissions by email, but with an ever growing number of makers, the administration was taking up too much time, so they asked us to build them a custom app to automate the process.
We gave logged in customers the ability to submit a project via a form. The data submitted is stored and presented to admins in the backend who can approve or reject projects and make sure that all the information is correct. Upon approval, we auto-update the site menus, projects page and create a page for the project within Shopify.
Projects show related materials for easy purchasing and product records show related projects, so that customers can get inspiration for their fabrics.
