Re: Tags on accounts & tax - reliable enough ?by
Like in products: you would have the main category and m2m for trading reporting purposes.
Besides I am in favor or making tag names unique. There's no reason not advantages to let duplicates in tags names
any cleaner alternatives ideas ?camptocampINNOVATIVE SOLUTIONSBY OPEN SOURCE EXPERTSFrédéric ClementiProject ManagerBusiness Solutions+41 21 619 10 412015-10-30 12:13 GMT+01:00 zahid jalal <firstname.lastname@example.org>:Totally agree,and will be done at big pain.
In addition of what you said Fréderic. Migrating old implemetations with heavily nested analytic accounts and analytic distibutions from v8 and v7 to 9 is a mess
Tags are definitely flexible and offer more classification but unreliable in my view for financial reports purposes.
I can so easily create 2 tags with the same name or forget to add a tag or delete it by mistake (so little cross) !
There is a big risk of error when users will create their own account ; they will disover that the P&L is wrong for ex. just because of a tag error...and if there is an error what tool do you have to quickly find the error on the report ?
With a required M2O field (like 'type' on account) you can select the wrong one but you cannot print a report with the wrong grand total.
I understand the M2M field but do you think the widget is the right one ?
