Hello Everyone,

I am stuck in email templates inheritance.

I want to inherit two email template of same record id.

one email template is in sale module with record id "email_template_edi_sale"

and another one is in portal_sale module with same record id "email_template_edi_sale"

I need to inherit both.

I tried inherit by module_name.record id. but it can help because it is written inside noupdate="1"

Thanks is advance.
