  1. Landed cost

    It should be possible to include the following in the cost of items. Purchase cost + Freight cost + Duty & VAT+ Clearing Cost e.g when we purchase product you can pay A to the supplier, B to the shipping company, C to the revenue Authority and D to the clearing agent. All these are total costs of this item. In the Geeneral Ledger should appear: Debit Purchases Account with (Cost of items+Duty and VAT+Freight Cost + clearing costs) and Credit four supplier's Accounts. one with Cost of Items, the other with Freight Costs, the other with Clearing Costs and…

    • Left padding in document numbers

      Due to local regulations the invoice number must be completed with zeros in
      the middle.
      I mean, if the invoice number is "100", the prefix is "A-10000-" and there
      is no sufix; the number would be like this: "A-10000-00000100" .

        • Usage of shortcuts while entering dates

          Entering a date is a click/keyboard and brain intensive exercise. If today is Thursday 26-05-2011, and you want to enter next Thursday as a date, you need to either think quite hard what date that could be (26+7=33, current month is May has 31 days, 33-31=2, next month is June, hence date is 02-06-2011) or you need to open a calendar, click on the corresponding cell, etc.

          The whole process would be much easier on users if users could leverage shortcuts whereby:
          t represents today's date
          t+X represents today's date + X days
          t-X represents today's date - X days

          • Ability to open different windows

            One of the coolest features from Sugar CRM or other systems as SAP R/3 is the ability to open and work simultaniously with different windows just using the ctrl button to open a new tab within the same browser. That allows the user to work in a more efficent way (i.e: checking data from a business partner at the same time you are doing a sales order).. See also https://issues.openbravo.com/view.php?id=4581

              • Automatic reverse G/L Post

                It would be great if the tab "Header" of the "G/L Journal" window had a check called "Generate reverse post" that if checked would generate automatically a reversed post for the next period. The system should generate two posts for this case, the one that the user has specified through the "Lines" tab and another one that is reversed or opposed (same accounts but charged in credit if they were charge in debit or viceversa) for the next period..

                • State transitions for documents and buttons

                  Currently the document life cycles are not consistently managed in terms of metadata. From one side, a significant portion of the business logic is hard coded; from the other, it is not done consistently. For example: an invoice goes from Draft to Complete pressing the Complete button. But it goes from Not Posted to Posted pressing the Not Posted button..
