In settings Purchases / Purchase Order / Supplier Features there is an option: "Alerts by products or supplier" When it is enabled: What does it do? How does it change the OpenERP interface? How does it change the suplier or product properties?
Do you know you can hover over that option and see a short description?
What does it do?
Alerts are messages that you want users involved in purchasing to see. Let's say you have an issue with a product or supplier. Each time a user orders that product, or orders from that supplier, they can be shown an alert message.
How does it change the User Interface?
The moment you choose a supplier on a Purchase Order, you will see any alert:
How does it change the supplier or product properties?
You set the alert as a property of the product or supplier record.
There are two kinds of alerts - one that stops the user from going further (Blocking Message) and one that just pops up a message (Warning).
The last time I looked at blocking alerts in v7, they didn't stop me from ordering and I think there was something else that I didn't like.
