  1. Implement SAF-T export capabilities

    SAF-T (Standard Audit File for Tax Purposes) is an file format to export accounting data from software. It is part of an OECD recommendation for business and accounting software (http://www.oecd.org/document/57/0,2340,en_2649_34897_34910329_1_1_1_1,00.html). In Portugal, since the start of 2008, the capability of exporting a SAF-T file is required from all accounting software. The specific file format for Portugal is SAFT-PT (http://www.assoft.pt/saft-pt/). It would be important to have this export capability in OpenBravo as it is likely that other European countries will adopt the SAF-T standard.. See also https://issues.openbravo.com/view.php?id=3453

      • Add support for early payment or cash discounts

        "One study found that if the credit term is net 30 days, the money, on average, arrived 45 days after the invoice date. In order to speed up these payments, some companies give credit terms that offer a discount to those customers who pay within a shorter period of time. The discount is referred to as a sales discount or cash discount, and the shorter period of time is known as the discount period. For example, the term 2/10, net 30 allows a customer to deduct 2% of the net amount owed if the customer pays within 10 days of…

          • Saving Report Criteria for future Use

            I think it would be an excellent feature to be able to save the settings that were used to prepare a report, thus allowing these reports to be rerun on command, or scheduled to run automatically on a pre-set schedule. For instance, if a user generates a Sales dimensional report and wants to save the product, category, region, salesperson and other dimensions for future use so they don't have to be prepared again, and in addition, they want to run this report automatically the first of every month. This feature would offer tremendous power, adding a degree of streamlined convenience…

            • Need fund transfer functionality

              The ability to transfer funds from one financial account to another is lost in 3.0 and needs to be re-introduced.

              There is a work around involving the use of two transactions (issue towards a GL item and receive from that GL item) but it is too time consuming for end users.

              • The project and service management GUI

                The project and service management does not contain a very graphical user interface. it would make a big selling-point if such GUI would be availble. Has nobody ever looked into re-using the GUI-elements available in the Rapla-tool. http://rapla.org/wiki/ This GUI can be re-used for every project and service management organisation. The backend needs to be fitted onto openbravo, which does not appear a major job.

                  • Remove role to organization association, bind it to user level

                    If a role is defined independent of organization the duplication of roles can be avoided.

                    For example a store manager performs same role in any of the store, currently we have to duplicate the role for each organization.

                      • implement business logic in scala

                        It seems, that scala (http://www.scala-lang.org/) would be a perfect fit for implementing the business logic in an java based erp, as it integrates perfectly with java. Using a scala based "Business DSL" (domain specific Language) could be a good trade off between "low level" java coding and the common erp parameter hell.

                          Actually Summary Level definition is just an informative definition. But it would very useful to be able to filter by BP defined as Summary Level when running reports

                              I would like to generalize it to a “time dimension” that could be calendar month, calendar quarter, calendar year or accounting period, accounting year.

                                        Hi!

                                        Thank you for the idea.

                                        As of now it is not in our Roadmap similar to other specific payment methods. Why so?

                                      • Support for java based front end or ecommerce system

                                        Openbravo trying to improvise as a one point solution with ERP and POS and Mobile support, it is good if it would also provide java based ERP compatible ecommerce front end(atleast trying to acquire existing opensource or free community editions of apache biz, broad leaf etc)

                                        As it may have plan to provide generic module(say erp-ecommerce connector) but still it sounds good to have one centric database to both ecommerce and erp instead of relying on web service communication with two different systems(example - magento and openbravo)

                                        • Openbravo support for NO SQL database

                                          I think it is the perfect time to start thinking about NO SQL before is too late or new players come.

                                          I know its a long road, and specially because of that I think it is now the time to start thinking on this.
