Purchase Requests have been helping Odoo users communicate their requirements for materials and/or external services for years.
In Odoo's Purchase Request application, from the requesting user's perspective, it is very easy to know when the requested products purchase is started and when the products are received.
For the Purchase Department, it is sometimes a bit more complex. Users from different departments may require the same product for very similar dates. The Purchase Request application provides many filters so that Purchase Managers can easily know what is pending to be Purchased. However, Purchase managers were unable to see which user or department had received the parts. Moreover, purchase managers would have needed to know the specific user or department making the purchase, and the quantity they ordered.
In this new version of the application, all of the above is possible. Purchase Requests App will now manage the quantities allocated in a specific purchase request. And we can relate them to a specific user, a specific department or a specific project.
This App, is available in Odoo v12, both in community and enterprise, and it is completely Opensource.
This presentation will be presented using Odoo12 enterprise. This session will combine a slides with a live demo at the end.
