How to put line notes on SO and Invoice?

In v6.0 in both objects, Sale Order and Invoice, it was possible to put a note for each line. Why has this feature been removed in v7.0?

What is the best way to put a note onto a certain line of a Sale Order or an Invoice?

I just had the same question from a customer who uses notes to provide important information to its customers. The name field can contain several lines but this approach presents usability issues on the screen. Moreover the notes used to be presented in a different font. What is the recommended alternative?

For previous version both of GTK or Web Client, we can switch invoice line from list view into form view, so we can put there a note. What is the way to switch from list view into form view at the invoice line?

You will find all you need here:

http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~sale-core-editors/sale-reports/7.0/files http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~account-core-editors/account-invoice-report/7.0/files

  • sale_note_flow: will restore the flow of comment between invoices and SO
  • sale_order_webkit: will add HTML note on SO lines and will add a webkit report on SO to support it
  • html_sale_product_note: will add HTML sale note on product that will come into SO line HTML note
  • html_invoice_product_note: will do the same on invoice
  • invoice_webkit will: add HTML note on invoice lines and will add a webkit report on invoice to support it


I'll give it a try, thanks. BTW: can we install such custom modules on the hosted version?

Thanks you in advance.



To get them to show up, you need to restart your OpenERP server, then go to Settings -> Update Modules to update your list. You need Technical Features to be on in order to do that.
