How to set a default shop

on 7/22/13, 6:30 PM 2,072 views

When making a quotation I get the warning :

Error! There is no default shop for the current user's company!

There one user for one child company (this is multi-company setting). I must add that there is no Shop item in the Sales/Configuration I did activate for the user all the possible permissions including technical permissions.

How can I set a default shop ?

Yes I start by this thread. I did followed all the advices… But no luck.

I did think that it was a wrong configuration with the modules. I did reinstall several time. But no luck on that… It is very annoying. It looks like the multi-company is still impossible.

Hmm... Are you saying that you can't see where the shop configuration is?

Hi Ray and Grover : I noticed that when - under the user account - I do check out. After reconnecting then : I finally see the shop item ! I can then create a shop for a warehouse. And it works.

But because I do not need the warehouse system [I sell only services], if I erase the module warehouse. Then I still create quotation.

I must say that it is very complicated…
