    • Hierarchical product categories

      Currently products belong to only one category and categories are not hierarchical. This entry requests: 1) Allow the creation of multiple product categorization schemes. Each scheme is used for a specific business purpose, for example the categorization that is used for demand planning is different from the categorization that is used for a sales catalog. 2) For each categorization scheme, allow a hierarchical definition of categories. For example: - Trucks - 18 wheelers - pick up tracks - Cars - SUV - Minivan - Sedan - Station wagon - ... 3) For each categorization scheme, specify whether a product can…

        All legacy PL/SQL code in Openbravo should be converted to either middle tier Java that interacts with the database through DAL or to meta data rules. See also https://issues.openbravo.com/view.php?id=8032

            • Conditionally mandatory fields

              The purpose here is to be able to create a mandatory field in the window/tab without having to make it mandatory in the database and create a default value. As we move toward more dynamic tabs with certain field selections requiring mandatory information it is not possible to create this without reporting and error message when trying to save the form. For example the following bug [1] requires the payment field to be mandatory for a 'Debt Payment' type and as this links to a Settlement it does not seem correct to create a dummy default value. This mandatory setting…

                • It should be possible to request the count of records in a grid

                  When the number of records exceeds 100, the record counter displays >100.

                  This makes sense since calculating the number of records is an expensive proposition and in many cases users do not need to know that information.

                  However, there should be a way to request the calculation of the record count.

                  Please notice that this is a functional regression compared to 2.50 since in that version you could at least scroll to the end of the grid and see the total. This is not possible in Openbravo 3.

                  • Screen that allows viewing, inserting, updating and deleting the data pertaining to multiple tables

                    I want a functionality (probably a form) in Openbravo, that allows not only viewing but also adding, modifying and deleting the data pertaining to more than one tables, and should behave like a standard window tab generated through WAD in Openbravo (currently a window tab only supports operations on a single table).

                    The form should also have features like Grid to navigate through records, a custom toolbar, and integrated user rights management.

                    • Debit and Credit aritmetic operations

                      Someone told me that yo can enter an aritmetic operation in debit/credit amount when you are creating a new g/l journal in navision. That's a good idea, for example yo could enter 1225*14 instead of doing that operation in a calculator out of OB and then enter the result in credit/debit textbox..

                                Currently OpenbravoERP has this nice "Processing..." feedback widget that appears everywhere. But I had a problem, I lost connection to server while processing, and the window did not notice it, so I kept looking at "Processing" widget several minutes until I realized (by trying to open a Google page on a new tab) that something was wrong. Processing widget should be smart enough to recognize an exception.. See also https://issues.openbravo.com/view.php?id=3946

                                    • Add validation feature to Selectors

                                      Comboboxes of type tabledir have the feature of restricting the list of records shown by applying a validation specified in the ad. The same feature is desirable for selectors: To be able to use the already present validation system to declaratively specify extra filters to apply..

                                      • Show how many lines are available

                                        Currently when on the header tab, it is not clear if there are any underlying lines available. Clicking lines to check this, will take loading time, especially when first the last line is shown, then user needs to click the grid view to see all lines..
