One of the main benefits of the Gear Locker on Trailpost is the ability to save time when creating new packs by not having to re-enter all your product data each time.
In particular cases such as product names and weights, we need you to type this information in because we don't know it. However, for other pieces of information such as how you how many you pack, how you categorize an item when packing it, or how you consume it, we can learn from your past choices to speed up future ones.
Rather than requiring you to choose these options every time you add an item to a pack, we keep track of the choices you've made in the past to provide smart defaults in the future.
If over time you usually pack 2 "Snack Bars" as "Food" and set a consumption rate of "1 per day", the next time you go to add it to your pack, those values will be pre-selected for you.
You can always change the selection, and Trailpost will use your latest choices to continue learning how you pack your locker items.
