Odoo Help


Does Odoo have 'posting profiles' for the GL? How do I make sure Sales Revenue for different products goes to a different accounts?

I'm new to Odoo, sorry for my newbie question.

Coming from another ERP, I'm looking for information how Odoo manages to structure the postings from logistical actions to the general ledger. In the ERP I'm used too, this is called the posting profiles.

An example: How can I direct the revenue of sales of an article group to one specific account in the general ledger and the revenues of another article group to another account? The same for production orders.

Thanks for helping

It might help to review the Accounting Entries that are created at each stage to understand how Accounts on the Product Form dictate how the entries are booked:

Check for the Accounts in the product form Accounting Tab that have fields for incomes and expense accounts
