Odoo is the world's easiest all-in-one management software. It includes hundreds of business apps:
CRM | e-Commerce | Accounting | Inventory | PoS | Project management | MRP | etc.
I installed the HR Expense module to track general supplies such as office equipment (printer, papers, tools...etc). I applied myself as an employee in the HR module since I'm running my small business by myself with no employees. After I click the "Generate Accounting Entries" button, the state is moved to "Waiting Payment". This state just sits there forever. There is nowhere I can pay it. Nothing is shown in Customer Invoices or Supplier Invoices. There is NO manual with instruction on how this module works. This is for Odoo, not OpenERP 7.
Someone reported similar issue at https://www.odoo.com/forum/help-1/question/how-to-pay-hr-expense-50040, but it's not solved yet.
How can I make a payment in HR Expense module?
Thanks for your help. Now I realize that the HR Expense module is actually working but its linkage between payment and invoice is not obvious. It's kind of weird how they design it. Also the field with label "Supplier" in the "Supplier Payments" module will show all customers including the employees in the HR Expense module, not just the suppliers. That was why I couldn't figure out how this this module work. The label "Supplier" in the supplier payments form should be changed to Customer/Supplier or something like that.
Odoo really needs to develop an user manual/guide for Odoo V8, (NOT OpenERP v7 as it's terrible!) for everyone who uses Odoo. Once this manual is developed, this help forum will have much less questions and confusions and users will be much happier. Believe me, the manual is critical to the success of Odoo!
My mistake, this article at https://www.odoo.com/forum/help-1/question/how-to-pay-hr-expense-50040 is actually working. You just have to make sure the employee is linked to a customer/supplier in the system (not sure which field is the linkage, "Related User", "Working Address", or "Home Address" in the Employees form). Now the HR Expense state is moved to "Paid" state, finally!
