If the above work is completed, additional research/work could go into providing a Sahana Module 'App Store'. The app store would host modules and integrate with the module manager such that searching for new modules, installing new modules, and upgrading existing modules could be performed.

 +==== Auto-Assignment of Resources ====
 +by Charles Wisniewski and Darlene McCullough
 +
 +__Introduction__
 +
 +Upon the creation or activation of a shelter system, the essential administrative task of adequately provisioning these centers becomes pressing.  It can be a daunting and time consuming task when there is little time at hand.  The timely distribution of volunteers and materials during an already stressful situation can make all the difference in saving a life and preventing further catastrophe.
 +
 +As part of the logistics module, a dispatch sub-function could be created to automatically distribute and allocate resources; both human and material.
 +
 +__Proposed Wireframe__
 +
 +This is a first pass at a potential wireframe, intended to provide structure and facilitation brainstorming; by no means intended to limit what can be created out of this proposal.
 +  * At the starting screen you can select what you want to provision.  The options include volunteers, materials, or both.
 +  * To ensure scalability for larger activations:
 +    * Shelters can be activated by group or individually
 +    * Resources can be provisioned either as groups or individually.
 +  * Shelters can be customized to provide special needs:
 +    * Resources can be categorized to be allocated to these customized shelters
 +    * //Example//: A deaf client is sent to a shelter with staff that is fluent in sign language.
 +    * //Example//: Insulin donated from a medical provider is auto-assigned to a shelter specializing in elderly clients with diabetes.
 +  * For deploying resources, the originating location of volunteers and other resources influences the distribution algorithm.
 +    * //Example//: Some emergency zones span hundreds of miles and the address or "home" location of a volunteer is considered when deploying them to a shelter.
 +  * Quality of resources is considered during allocation:
 +    * //Example//: The insulin is expired and not distributed.
 +    * //Example//: A volunteer is a Certified First Responder and is sent to an emergency medical shelter instead of someone who is only trained in basic first aid.
 +  * The ability to consume information from a third party logistic information providers.
 +    * //Example//: Traffic reports and their affect on resource allocation routes.
 +    * //Example//: GIS data in KML (Google maps/earth) format.
 +  * At the end of the assignment process a report should be generated on-screen indicating where resources have been allocated and the remaining resource pool to be allocated at a later time.
