Requires invoice date before validation to avoid Odoo setting 'today' as default if not filled in.

Project description

Alpha License: AGPL-3 OCA/account-invoicing Translate me on Weblate Try me on Runboat

In Odoo, when you validate an invoice with a void invoice date, it is automatically filled in with current date (today).

The invoice validation is now restricted if the invoice date is not filled in.

Table of contents


Go to Accounting > Settings > Invoicing & Payments > Date Required

Check the box if you want to make the invoice date required before validation.


Create an invoice with a void date (Accounting > Sales > Customer Invoices).

Try to validate it. An error is raised.
