How to set the default Sales Person for E-commerce orders instead of Administrator

on 6/29/15, 7:06 PM 1,586 views

After installing the odoo website_sale module, all orders created on the web-cart seem to be attributed to the sales person "Administrator".

Does anyone know if this can be changed or where? (I already tried setting the default sales person for this field in developer mode, but that only seems to affect orders created in the back-end)


Same here. We will look at this soon.

I got an answer through the community mailing list that helped.

(From Martin Trigaux)

In version 8, it should be the salesperson set on the partner creating the order. If there is no sales person, then it fallback on the administrator. If you wish to set another one, you should look into setting a default salesperson to the partners created.

In master version (future v9), it has changed and will now be the salesman specified on the website configuration.

Techncally, you must override the sale_get_order() method written under the website_sale module and here you can manage to get the ID of the salesman.

Here, if you plan to set the salesman per company for your ecommerce store, you may add up the salesman field inside the company configuration.

Hi, using Odoo 10c. I have set default SP in website admin, on customer and tried using the set defaults in dev mode. Still, when weborder is made, I get 2 notifications. First, one that tells me a new order is made, with correct sp, and right after a new notification telling med sp is set to admin. What am I missing?
