We are exploring Openerp and want to work in a Mutli Company environment. We have a holding company with 2 sub companies.
We are wondering whether it's possible to create an user which can work in all 3 companies, without the hassle of logging in and out each time to switch between companies?
Thanks in advance!
You can't reliably work in two or three companies at the same time. I don't know of any ERP system that lets you do that (SAP, Navision etc. all make you specify clearly in what Company you want to work. In Openerp you have to "login" in a specific company to work in it. You can do that by changing the company in "Preferences" under your username in the upper right corner.
Be careful with a Holding and sub's, because it seems, that you can work in all three, but also in that situation you have to set your preferences. To see postings in all three companies and still only to be able to work in one can be very confusing with possibly postings in the wrong company as a result. It is a bit like working as "admin", which is, from a bookkeeping point of view, quite dangerous.
Thank you Jaakko!
I already found this option. However it seems the user should belong to the holding company, if i have an user who works for sub company A, and has also rights to sub company B, but won't see sub company b, unless he is member from the holding.
Is their a way to work around this?
Also is it possible to lock a customer to a Sub Company? As a user member of the holding i'm able to quote a sales order from a sub company b, however the customer belongs to sub company a.
