Subject: Cost Centers in Odoo 8??? Analytic account?


Hello all,


I am trying to figure out the best way to setup a cost centers in Odoo 8 Accounting.


Basically I would like to maintain a clean chart of accounts, and be able to define cost centers on transactions.


We have many locations, I would like to avoid having to have a GL account for every Chart/location.


I would like to make the location a "Cost center", so that any transaction that takes place for that location, gets attributed to the correct chart/location


From what I can see, This is what an analytical account is used for... 


Is this correct? does anyone have any experience with this.


I believe its basic accounting.


Thanks all
