Sale 0rder Line Position

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

This module adds an auto computed position on sale order line. This position number is also printed on the report.

The position can be used to keep track of each line during the delivery and invoicing of the order with the customer. This is why there are related modules on account-invoice-reporting and stock-logisics-reporting.

The positions are recomputed when the sale order is printed, sent and set to confirm.

The positions are not changed on the line after the order has been confirmed, but if new line are added they will receive a position number.

An action is also availabled to manually recompute the positions.

Known issues / Roadmap

The way the positions are computed on the create of sale.order.line record could lead to a performance issue. There is a few improvements that have been suggested:

Remove it and handle the computation on the write and/or create method of the sale.order.

Have a context key to enable/disable the recomputation.

Do not set any value in the position fields before the sale order lines are locked (in the current implementation, before sending). And add a recompute button in the UI.

Set the position values with an SQL query using a TRIGGER.
