Grosh analyses the item name you enter at the top of the shoppinglist before adding the item to your list, any you may experience that Grosh changed the item name. It does this for two reasons:
- To make it easy to assign store and price, so it extracts price from the end, and second last it looks for a store name – if “comma space” is found, this is understood as the start of a comment to the item
- To avoid similar items in the auto complete list that appears under the text entry field. Eg Skimmed milk is changed to “milk skimmed” so the two identical items are NOT present in the system. Grosh has an algorithm for detecting what is the item name and what’s adjectives / variant information. But you can help Grosh by always entering item names according to our naming conventions.
Related to reason 2 and not to have duplicates, Grosh removes casing to the entered item name and ignores brackets and other delimiter characters in item names. As Grosh grows more aware of e.g. brand names, this will change slightly in the future.
