periodical service billing

on 11/28/13, 3:09 PM 1,471 views

Hi all, I have been experimenting with different modules to create recurrent or periodical invoices. So far i am surprise that there is no suitable or proper way to do this. OpenERP is by far more powerful tool than anything else that i used before, but recurring process is not really is forte.

  1. The community module periodical invoicing is simple, really good, easy to use but the lack an important necessary feature, i.e. applicable tax on invoice line.
  2. Recurring Documents module is nice too and has an invoice template with tax to srtat with, etc... but lack the ability to add billing period to line order.
  3. Contract management module.... well not working for me at all.

Does anyone had more success implementing recurring invoices and processing ?

Is there a way in OpenERP to auto-validate invoices created by the modules and auto-send them to the assigned partner email ? CronJob ?

Many thanks !

The way to do that in OpenERP is to user recurring invoices in contracts (it's on OpenERP online as it's in trunk).

What did not work for you with contracts?
