we want to start with to set up the Warehouse Module in odoo v8 and I have some issued regarding 'products' and 'suppliers'
Actually they miss some fields in order to work for us
- "product code" or "product number" (which is being defined by our suppliers)
- link to a specific supplier (in almost 90% the components we are using are only available by one specific supplier and the supplier is actually almost a property of a component)
- "Supplier code" (this is a number we assign to all our suppliers. It is being communicated to customers as well [who shall not be able to know the name of our suppliers] it is necessary to clearly identify a component
These fields need to be searchable through the standard search tools. An example: we have a fabric with a code 'N23' sold by a supplier with the code 'SF1083FA'
I guess I need two modules to do that. One on Top of 'product' another one on top of Supplier/Customer (which are the same). Also I think I need the database entry "Supplier code" to be shown in the Customer/Supplier Form,List,Kanban View as well as on the product Form, List, Kanban view
As I assume we are not the only ones who use such codes I wonder whether there are any Modules 'out there' who already do that or something similar.
regarding supplier/Customer Code: apparently there is something called "Contact Reference" which is existing inside of odoo. Weirdly this seems to be invisible and unsearchable for the user by default.
Forunately someone (Daniel Reis - thank you!) made a module called crm refcodes that pulls these entries out of the database and makes them visible and searchable for the users. Testing this for a very short time I have seen though that this works best when you add these "Contact Reference" in the moment a Contact is being created. When I tried to add them to an existing Supplier or Customer they are not displaying in the list or kanban view and I could only find them using "advanced search" > Contact Reference contains ..." When you added this while dreating the contact you can just type in a value in the regular search field and odoo will find all entires that use the string you entered in the "Contact Reference"
Lucky me. I am only beginning to use this
There is no need to build two modules, you can create just one custom module to add those required fields (product code and supplier code) and respected search views into the product form. Those fields can be called on all the required views like Kanban, search views etc. Product reference number or product code is already their but its only for internal reference, so additional field can be added to give supplier defined product code.
