How to make automatic procurement, so Purchase user know that there are products out and should be ordered? I've also defines minimum stock rule for each product. Will have to use the run schedulers?

When you ran the scheduleur manually, you can select the box next to 'Automatic orderpoint '. In this case, if you have a product managed on stock (MTS), and you didn't create a specific stock level, OpenERP will take for granted that you want to have more than zero in stock.

Now, If you run the stock compute through the scheduleur, by default it will not assume this. No min stock for a product will lead you to an error 'No min stock defined'

To avoid this, in the scheduler form add '(True,) in the Arguments field

You can do one of the following actions to trigger the procurement of products which are set to "Make to Stock":

  1. activate the scheduler so that it runs periodically (menu "Settings/Technical/Scheduler")
  2. run the scheduler manually
