Sales Order sorting by most recent?

on 6/18/13, 12:21 PM 5,998 views

Recently in the tree view of Quotations and Sales Orders, the sorting is a little goofed. It appears to stop at SO999 and not show any more recent orders unless i have users click date twice to sort to the most recent. Any way I can fix this default behavior in the view config? Thanks!

_order Name of the fields used to sort the results of the search and read methods.

Default value: 'id'.


_order = "name"
_order = "date_order desc"

in model sale.order

_order = 'name desc'

so you can modifiy this line in sale.py to

_order = 'id desc'

or create a new module to overwrite _order.

I too have this problem, when I make the changes nothing happens. I have updated the sales module as well. EDIT: I had to restart the server, not upgrade the module and it works now.
