Re: Module for requisitions by employeesby
I also have the same need. I would ultize this mod in many areas.
I think a requisition module would be a great addition to odoo. A module like this would be able to define different work flows and set in approval steps based on certain criteria.
For example sticking with the purchasing theme, if user A makes a request that is beyond their purchasing limit, the request must be approved by a manager. Once the request is approved it should create a draft purchase order which would be fulfilled by the employee responsible for purchasing.
This same idea could be applied to stock move requests for parts on a work order.

So my question:If I have say 50 users in the company I do not want them all talking to and corresponding with suppliers. From my knowledge it is common practise in many companies to have a purchasing or sourcing office with a couple of employees to manage orders, RFq's and correspond with suppliers.In my experience an employee will create what is referred to as a "requisition/request" for goods/services . The procurement office would convert this to a PO either using an existing contract or go out on RFq if there is no supplier currently available.How would this be done in Odoo. Is there a requisition module that does the above. I have tried Purchase Requisitions by OpenERP SA , but this gives you the option to create a requisition from a purchase order not sure the use of this. Is there a way to do the above?(Ideally having approval on the requisition document would be the way forward as well)Thanks in advance
