Auto attach to e-mailed invoice

Hi Ecosystem,

Odoo 8

E-mailing an invoice allows you to also attach other documents apart from the auto-attached invoice itself.

We are looking for the following.

We are registering HR expenses for reimbursement. Those expenses get included in the delivery invoice (so the invoice has lines for the actual delivery and for the associated expenses). On registering the expenses, we also attach the scanned expense document (POS receipt, invoice whatever). So the expense document exists. 

We would like, if the e-mailed invoice includes lines from HR expenses,  to be able to attach the HR document, in the same e-mail.

Preferably automatically.

Now (unless we are missing something), we have to keep local copy of the expenses documents and manually attach them.

Ideally Odoo should realize that there are expenses lines in the invoice, and fetch the attachments of those expenses (to be reattached to the invoice e-mail), or give a list of potential extra attachments (from the expenses attached documents).

Any idea?

Kind regards,
