My wife and I have two companies.  Should I set up two separate instances of Odoo?  I am trying to set up a multicompany installation and am finding it to be rather complicated given that we both have different paypal accounts and ware house arrangements.  However, from an accounting standpoint, for me, it would be easier to manage both in one instance.  What have others done?


Two companies sharing the same accounting? That's odd.

I say that, if you really have two different companies, you won't - most likely -, be mixing their stuff, will you? 

I've always favoured different setups. That's the only way you can rest assured no problems will emerge. And, after all, it's not that hard to manage... You're either working in company A ou in company B at a given moment. You can, even, have two different browsers running, each one with a different login if you absolutely must.

OpenERP 7 has been a nightmare with a multicompany environment. Odoo should be better, though. Still...
