Is there a way to set up Open ERP to do the following. I have 1 legal entity but is doing business under 2 different names. 1. "The flower shop" retail store (Legal business) 2. "Tulips are we" consukting service. (Doing Business as)
A. I want to keep all the accounting in one set of books. B. All items are shared between the 2 operations C. Company 1 and Company 2 can sellall products D. All documents going to customers need to look different with different logos.
Setting up a Parent-child relation forced me to duplicate of all GL accounts. Also it forced me to duplicate all products since the categories needed to point at different GL accounts.
I see that people have been saying that one should use sales tems using different templates. The problem I and others are seeing is that there is no place to set up the templates by sales team even though it is stated that it is possible.
If templates is the path to success where do you set it up in OpenErp 7.0? Is it easy to have the content on the invoices, sales order, quotes etc. included be automatically selected by sales team .
It seems this thread tries to accomplish the same https://www.odoo.com/forum/help-1/question/how-to-work-with-multiple-shops-multi-company-51983
I've been playing around with multi-company as well which works fine for me in the backend/accounting, but I struggle to match the consumer facing website accordingly.
Perhaps this would be easier to support what you need by just setting up two shops?
One Chart of Accounts, one 'set of books', one list of products that can be sold by both shops, from the same warehouse.
You would then just need to have conditional reports. The sale.order model has a shop_id associated with it - this would let you have different reports for quotes and orders. You would have to add this attribute to account.invoice to have different reports for invoices.
Try something like:
<image file="shop_a_logo.png" >[[ o.shop_id.name in ['Shop B'] and removeParentNode('image') ]]</image>
<image file="shop_b_logo.png" >[[ o.shop_id.name in ['Shop A'] and removeParentNode('image') ]]</image>
Note that the images will be centered on the page. You can't have images (this way) inside <para> tags and there are a lot of things not supported this way.
