Project description

License: AGPL-3

Purchase Order Approved

This module extends the functionality of purchases adding a new state Approved in purchase orders before the Purchase Order state. Additionally add the possibility to set back to draft a purchase order in all the states previous to Purchase Order. From a user point of view, this change introduces a two-step validation process of the purchase order.

In this new Approved state:

  • You cannot modify the purchase order.

  • However, you can go back to draft and pass through the workflow again.

  • The incoming shipments are not created. You can create them by clicking the Convert to Purchase Order button, also moving to state Purchase Order.

The new state diagram is depicted below:

  2. In the Logistics section in the Configuration tab you can set the Use State ‘Approved’ in Purchase Orders.

To activate the new workflow by supplier:

  1. Open the supplier form view.

  2. In the Purchase section in the Sales & Purchases tab the field Purchase requires second approval allows you to select the policy to apply for the current supplier. ‘Never’ | ‘Always’ | ‘Based on company policy’
