I would like to have an additional SUBMITTED state between draft and open for customer invoices.
The objective is to clearly identify which invoices have been submitted to customer and which ones were not submitted.
An additional checkbox might fit too. What do you think would be the best approach?
Is it difficult to achieve it, could someone explain the high level approach to do this?
One option is you can keep a boolean field, and if submitted you can check that field by edit. Then by overriding the write() to check if state = draft && boolean field = checked, do transition to "submitted" state. In submitted state you can make visible the default buttons on open state.
Another option is you can have a button "Submitted", which on click, makes the transition from "draft" to "submitted" and also check the boolean field. So when the boolean field got checked, then only other default buttons in open state would be visible.
