How to use the EDI framework to implement your electronic invoicing format?
Josse Colpaert Developer  at Odoo

Josse spent several years as a technical director in a company developing warehouse management solutions. He has a wide knowledge of both the business side as well as the core development of Odoo. After joining Odoo in 2012, he began working with the R&D team on projects including payment follow-up, FIFO, and of course warehouse management. 



How to use the EDI framework to implement your electronic invoicing format

We start to have a lot of different electronic invoice formats to support in Odoo. Some are used to automate the administration between companies. Others are required by the government as a fiscal control. We saw that the flow among invoice formats is more or less the same, but often implemented differently. The account_edi module is a way to standardize the different approaches.

So, if you need to implement an invoice format yourself -as Odoo has not had the time yet to implement them all- it might be wise to use account_edi as well and we will show you how.

However, things evolve, certainly in the brains of Odoo developers and we would not want to not talk about the status of the different EDIs, how we will try to reuse ubl code and how we might generalize account_edi to just edi.
