Hello All.

I'm currently working in a mutlicompany environment and I'm having several doubts with Stock Module. When we install a new DB we have this structure:

Partner Locations (Node) -> Customers , Suppliers (Leaves)

Physical Locations (Node) -> Transit Location , Stock (Leaves)

Virtual Locations (Node) -> Inventory Loss, Procurement, Production .... (Leaves)

These locations has "company_id" = False, I can use it with all the companies. So my question is, do I need to duplicate all the locations to all the companies or just duplicate the leaves and kept the nodes with no company? Which is the best practice?

Thank you!

This is just my opinion.

In the life, much practically if you separate the locations, and stocks by companies. Later the handling, and overview -I think- mutch more easier.

If your model is include some common location, you can define it as well by common.

Some larger companies, must sepeareted the locations also. Like incoming stock separareted from production kanban stock, and final qc stock. We need to handle all of the larger location like a different company. (In this case we inherit the stock_locations)

Hope this is help.
