I purchased tablets. They were delivered to me. I created a lot for every single tablet ... it's a bit complicated but OK ... for now :)

Now sales person sold a specific tablet with a specific serial number but he didn't do it directly from odoo ... I have to create sales order with that specific tablet with specific serial number. How to accomplish this? When I create sales order with that product the delivery order takes first lot number it finds and uses it. But it's not the one I want. How to change it.

When I delete quant associated with a delivery order I don't get to choose different quant anywhere. Nor can I find a place how to specify new lot number.

Help ... somebody :)

It's not what I wanted to do, martin. What you suggest is that I bind serial number to a product. What I want to do is to use specific serial number when selling something ... I have one product with many serial numbers. I would like to choose at sales time which one to choose or (if it's not possible) to correct the one odoo chose by itself.

OK. I found answer to my problems myself :)

The trick is to FORCE the availability on delivery order. After that you can open picking view (and you can "create" your specific Lot ID .. it means you choose the one you like from available serial numbers. That's it.
