Project description

Beta License: AGPL-3 OCA/pos Translate me on Weblate Try me on Runbot

This module allow to define some reasons for the functionality of “Put Money In” and “Take Money Out” available in point of sale session.

So, with this module it’s possible to impact directly an expense or income account which is defined on the related reasons and create according accounting entries.

Typical Use Case (not exhaustive)

  • You want to track Bank deposit moves, using an intermediate bank account named ‘Cash Awaiting Bank Deposit’. (In France, for instance, “581 - Espèce en attente d’encaissement”)

  • You want to allow payments from Cash Journal to pay recurring little expenses. (Gasoline, parking meter, etc.)

Known issues / Roadmap

As it is not possible to disable actions on Odoo, a new technical group is added by this module, named ‘Use Old PoS ‘Put or Take Money’ Actions’, to hide native obsolete actions available on the model pos.session (the two buttons “Take Money Out” and “Put Money In”)

Changelog (2019-08-13)

  • [MIG] Port module to version 12.0.

  • [REF] Don’t use product.product model for Reasons, because Odoo remove the fields expense_pdt and income_pdt from the model. Use instead a new model pos.move.reason for this purpose.

  • [REF] Doesn’t inherit from and model, as there are bad designed and doesn’t allow clean inheritance. Instead, use new transient model wizard.pos.move.reason. (2018-06-25)

  • [REF] Minor code refactoring. (2017-06-08)

  • First Version of the module.
