I am wondering if anyone can help me figure out a way to best display complex levels of details for a Tax Rate setting within our software, which is communicated to a point of sale. All this is being done as a reworking of an existing product previously designed and developed by a team of developers.
Users create Classes within our system, such as Footwear, that can then be broken into subclasses (Men, women, Youth, Racing) and then even more so, by a specific brand/color/model, below that initial subclass. When setting up Tax Rates for these items within their stores, a user can select a base class (footwear) or one of the granular subclasses below when they want to apply a specific Rate to a selection of item Classes (such as a Tax Rate of 0% for Educational items during special dates of the year, or even no tax on Five-star notebooks, ever).
I am trying to create a detailed view of this information for each Tax Rate, but because users are the ones who create this Class hierarchy themselves, I am unsure of how to display summative data for their Class/Subclass selections. I can't generalize using just the class because you don't have to choose every subclass within a Class.
Has anyone dealt with something like this before and found a solution for displaying what was selected in a clear summary?`!
