It is possible to add a Reference/Description to a Sales Order - I use this to record my customer's order number.

How do I show this on the Delivery Order? (in the SAAS version, meaning I can't use any community modules).

Version 8

At version 8, reports can be customized within the User Interface just like any other view.

Create a new view that inherits the report_picking report view and adds the information you want:




(Here is the raw text so you can copy and paste:)

<?xml version="1.0"?>

<!-- specify the anchor that the change will appear after -->
<span t-field="o.name" position="after">

<!-- make sure client_order_ref has a value, or do nothing -->
<div t-if="o.sale_id.client_order_ref">
Your PO#: <span t-field="o.sale_id.client_order_ref"/>
