Managing Profile groups

This article explains how to create and manage Profile groups.

Profile groups are required when setting up and scheduling post-roast blends (all tiers) and also when converting orders into roast schedules (only Professional and higher tiers). 

Managing Profile groups is available for the following products

  • Roast
  • Commerce 

What is a Profile group? 

Profile group is a set of different profiles that all create the same product or product component (for post-roast blends).

It allows you to define products or product components in terms of more than one Profile. 

Example: Depending on the ordered amount of coffee, you roast full batches and half batches. For a consistent end result, you have developed one roast profile per batch size. By grouping them into a Profile group, you see at a glance how much of a specific product you have produced.
