Store Custom user entered data in the basket

I have a requirement for storing custom information entered by the customer for certain products in a store.

Essentially (and currently!) the customer is required to fill out the additional information in a custom form upon adding the item to the basket. This information is then kept with the item in the basket (as an XML structured document) and retained with the order for passing on to other systems.

So as an evaluation of the current capabilities of Magento for a replacement store front end, My question:

a.) Is there a capability to store user entered information on an item in the basket/order per item?

b.) Any thoughts on implementation of this approach ie Within the item page or as a separate form required upon adding the item to the shopping basket.

This functionality will be available in Magento 1.1 -

You can see a video that shows how this is set up here:

Okay. That looks pretty cool and the field options seem to cover all the requirements.

So the answer here appears to be “check out the 1.1 release and do some alpha testing”. (Which I am eagerly doing right now) grin

Works for me as hopefully this will make it gold to stable before we are ready for implementation.

Thanks
