I understand how to import and map supplier price lists. I understand defining price lists versions (selling and purchasing). Nevertheless, what I do not understand is, how I can manage date-dependent pricing (not talking about special campaigns and rebates). To be more precise, here is what I would like to do:
Supplier A is sending me his new price list for 2015 in November 2014. I want to prepare my price list in December and then have it automatically go live 01/01/2015.
Is this possible in Odoo/OpenERP or would I need to wait for New Years Eve and manually start the import of the supplier lists?
I know many ERP programs which cannot handle date-dependent pricing as (tried) explaining above. Years ago when I needed to evaluate an ERP program, we went for Navision, since it could handle date-dependent pricing.
This has also the big advantage, that I can keep track on how suppliers prices develop over the years.
I am new to Odoo and very impressed, but can somebody please help and let me know, whether Odoo can do what I call date-dependent pricing?
But then I would expect to find a list somewhere with SKUs, cost price and „is active from ../../..”.
If my supplier raises cost price, I would not want to change my rule to calculate sales price – I still need my margin. But your screenshot just shows this option.
As far as I understand Odoo, these pricelist versions are great to calculate e.g. a price list for a customer who has a fixed discount or for special, temporary sales like “summer clearance on product category X”.
Still I am looking for a “traditional” purchase price list from supplier A showing all his SKUs and the possibility to import a new price list there with an active date.
