Purchase Representative

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

This module adds the field Purchase Representative to Purchase Orders. This field is present in Standard Odoo v12. The user specified will be the contact person for the purchase order.

Additionally, it defaults it to the user doing a procurement to overcome the known flaw of Odoo (until v13) which changes the user in the transaction when using sudo.

Table of contents


Just set the Purchase Representative in the Purchase Order header. Then when sending the RFQ/PO to the vendor the Purchase Representative will be the contact person (email from and reply to).

Known issues / Roadmap

Migration notes:

  • The field user_id is out-of-the-box in v12.
  • In v13 the user doing the transaction is respected. Check if emails are also sent to the correct user.
