    • 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…

                • Developing process manufacturing capability

                  Openbravo supports only discrete manufacturing. But lots of industries require process manufacturing. The Wikipedia definition is as follows (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Process_Manufacturing#Process_Manufacturing_Software): By the way, Adempiere's Libero manufacturing plugin already has some of this. Is it possible to plug Libero into Openbravo? Process Manufacturing is the branch of manufacturing that is associated with formulas or manufacturing recipes as compared to bills of material & routing as in the case of Discrete manufacturing.

                  • Be able to filter by BP defined as Summary Level

                    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

                      Sorry but this idea is not clear to me. Can you please explain in more details?
                      Which reports are you referring to? What are you trying to achieve?

                        Hi!

                        Thank you for the idea.

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

                      • 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.

                            Very good idea! Than you.

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

                          • multiple copies of jasper reports

                            I configured the AR Invoice document type to have 3 copies through the menu: Financial Accounting -> Accounting -> Accounting Rules -> Document Types. However when i try to print invoices it only prints one copy. I was told that this feature might not be yet implemented for jasper reports. This would be extremely useful..

                            • Report UI pattern in Application Dictionary

                              One of the major value propositions of Openbravo is the Model Driven Development: you do not need to code your application but you can simply declare it in your model. However, many commonly used UIs, currently require custom code. The pages to submit reports are one of them. The purpose of this project is to support this class of UIs in the Application Dictionary and to replace the existing custom code implementation..

                              • 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…

                                  In order to better support manufacture-to-order processes, users should be able to automatically create a manufacturing work order from a sales order line.

Users should be able to drill from a sales order line to the corresponding work order and from there to the finished goods.. See also https://issues.openbravo.com/view.php?id=4230
