How to obtain - in Sales order from customer - the name of the product AND its description?

seems basic!

when creating a SO and adding order lines for various products, I obtain an order line comprising the following columns

  1. Column name: "name of the product" (seems to be the field "Product_id")
  2. Column name: "Description" ( contains exactly the same data as in column 1) ; this field is the "name" field, although what is expected is the field "Description"
  3. other columns are quantity, price, discount, tax etc...

How to modify the SO form in order to obtain the Description of the product instead of a duplication of its name?

You have to add a sale description for your products under Warehouse -> Products -> Products (Form View) -> Sales (Tab).

However, this will result in PRODUCT_NAME + PRODUCT_SALES_DESCRIPTION in the description field.

If you need to go farther than that, then you have to develop a small custom module to achieve it.

Below the error message I now get!

Error: Could not get field with name 'product_packaging' for onchange 'product_id_change(parent.pricelist_id,product_id,product_uom_qty,False,product_uos_qty,False,name,parent.partner_id, False, True, parent.date_order, product_packaging, parent.fiscal_position, False, context)'

Every timeI try to add a new article to a SO, the Name is correct BUT the Description is empty (this is a mandatory field)

I am confused on how to correct this issue.

Any lead?
