Re: Use same sequence for both Payment and its Journal Entry

Hi Kitti,

Do you also think different numbering confusing? (or why not?)

I personally do not find it so confusing just because I am already used to it.  But yes, I think many users probably find it confusing, and it could be an extra "peculiarity" that they need to learn.  The design rationale, as I understand, is that numbers of journal entries are tied to the journals, and payments can involve more than one journal.  I do not see strong enough reasons, though, to stick to this design unless I am missing something.

Dear community,

Currently in Odoo v12, for Payment document, system is using different number between Payment Document and Journal Entry generated by it.

For example,
Payment = SUPP.OUT/2019/0002
Journal Entry = BNK1/2019/0002

For us it is quite confusing. We think the JE should be using the same number as its Payment, so both should be SUPP.OUT/2019/0002.

Note: for invoice, it is good, JE using same number as its invoice.

We are looking into develop a community module that force the number to follow its original document (payment).

But want to check first.
  1. Is this kind of module already exists?
  2. Do you also think different numbering confusing? (or why not?)
Many thanks all,
