When we change to this we’ll need to provide a way for people to easily login and review their saved products. The best way we can do this is to allow the user to login with only an email address or Google oAuth. Since we are only collecting basic contact information and favorite products we don’t need to authorize or make a user enter their password.
We want to collect the minimum amount of information possible that will help our sales person qualify the lead. This information does not need to be captured all at once we can look to capture in different stages.
Brief description of project/space they are furnishing
Spaces Custom Post Type
We would like to propose a new custom post type called “Spaces” that will have one featured image plus short description. Under the featured image will be dynamic module with the products found inside the “Space”.
*Optional: We can use this opportunity to create a plugin similar to ThingLink to annotate the images for linking to products.
Spaces post type will also be eligible for the new “Save to Favorites” Module. This will allow the user to save spaces that they like for inspiration. The salesperson can use these as an idea for the style that the user prefers.
Loop pages will use the new Lookbook panels from Steelcase.com. It will include the ability to filter images by taxonomy.
These spaces can be created by Steelcase from HUB or by dealers in their own sites.
Saving favorited items will encourage users to come back to the site using it as a discover and save tool. Since we only take the email on saving favorites we will then have a textarea above the saved boxes that will help us intake more information. Ex. Name, Company, Phone, Description of project, and any other information the dealers see fit.

To save this information we will create a new CPT “Contacts”
In the contacts post type list content will include:
