Update products stock via vendor bills

on 4/1/16, 4:41 PM 783 views


I was wondering why the products stock is not updated when I create (and pay) a vendor bill? 

Am I missing something or not doing it the right way??

Thanks a lot for you help.

Thanks a lot for your explanation. Is there any mean to make it possible (updating stock when creating a bills): it will avoid me doing 2 operations since I'm always sure that I receive the products when paying the bill?

Receiving goods is much more than only knowing that they arrived, a working business software must ensure consistent quantity and value flows over the complete value chain. Following the original Odoo workflow from sales order to payment should not be to much pain, because it is well supported. Otherwise you might save a step you consider not to be necessary and then pay the price by a lot of non-standard efforts to ensure the integrity and proper valuation of your stocks and COGS.

Odoo is designed to update stock only when the Warehouse receives something - not when Invoices are created, validated or paid. 

Warehouse Receipts deal with STOCK.

Vendor Bills deal with MONEY.
