How to automatically create a PO on Buy route with product quantity on 0?
I'm using Odoo.sh V12 since a few weeks so still learning a lot of stuff.
I believe our workflow is not that exceptional, but still I find it very hard to implement...
We have stock of some products, but most of them are not, so the quantity on hand will mostly be 0. When we have a new order of these products, it should generate a PO.
Currently, this is not working. In routes, I've put the buy route also active for our warehouse.
If I'm correct, this will cause all products linked to this warehouse to have the buy route?
But this was still not causing the PO to be automatically generated. I did exactly the same for the "Made to Order" route, and this was generating the PO! But this is not the route that I need, as I said for some products we do have stock, and with this route it's not taking this into account...
After Googling, I can across this question: https://www.odoo.com/nl_NL/forum/help-1/question/auto-generating-a-purchase-order-when-a-product-with-quantity-0-is-ordered-92423
He seems to have the same problem, and the only solution I see there is to add a reordering rule for every product and set it to 0. As we have more than 3000 products, this will take a very long time.
I cannot believe there is not an easier way to allow PO's to be created for product on Buy route with 0 quantity?
