Invoices have draft, open, paid stages now. How can i add "approve" activity in between draft and open activities in openerp version 7.0?. I want to inherit the model "account.invoice".

Hi samba,

Basically you would have to: 
1. Modify workflows of account.invoice to add that stage 
2. Modify the state field of account.invoice to add that state 
3. Modify the view of invoice and add the corresponding buttons

I can inherit the model and modify the state field. The problem i am facing is inheriting work flow. If i want to add "approve" in between "draft" and "open" these two Activities, and transitions and work flow should available in inherited view. It's not enough if we write only "approve" activity and transition. I believe that the transition of "draft" to "open" need to change like "draft" to "approve" and need to write new transition for "approve" to "open". We should write these two transitions, but it is asking for "workflow", "activities" . For the time being i had write these in inherited view. Does this write way?
