Why "post" entries two times??

on 5/7/13, 12:50 PM 1,426 views

documents like "Customer Payments" have to be posted two times, one in the document itself and then a second time by going to Accounting->Journal Entries--> Journal Entries and then "Post" there. If i don't post in the journal entries as well, customer payments are not reflecting in partner balance. is there a way to stop this two times posting ? if i post the customer payment that should be sufficient and reflect in partner balance. please advise

I think that OpenERP gives the second chance to users to correct the entries.

This is a default setting to support 'approval' of entries into the GL by a person other than the one who made them. You can change it.

Navigate to Accounting -> Configuration -> Journals -> Journals

  1. Open the Journal used to enter the type of transaction you want posted automatically
  2. Check the box next to Skip 'Draft' State for Manual Entries.

You will need to do this for every Journal were you want posting to be automatic.
