Odoo V8.0 Default Warehouse

I have a scenario where there is one company with three remote branches (mini warehouses) sharing the same chart of accounts. Each branch has seperate designated staff. Trialling Odoo I have setup 1 company with 3 warehouses and have found that regardless of who you log in as, the same warehouse on a sales/purchase order is nominated every time. I was wondering is there a way where you can default the warehouse selection on these orders based on the logged in user? In previous versions, I believe there was the notion of stores, but I can't find this feature on V8.

Alternatively, would it be better to use multi company and somehow share the chart of accounts or employ some other setting I'm not aware of?

This module - https://apps.odoo.com/apps/modules/9.0/user_warehouse_default/ - would be of use in that case

I found 1 solution though not ideal. If you turn on developer mode through about Odoo, you can default select form elements per user or globally. Still interested to hear of any other solutions.
