Re: Proposal to add Operating Units to OCAby
Tecnativa. S. L., Pedro M. Baeza
Creating one operational unit, making it default for all, and hiding the field if the group is not selected can be enough. Anyway, I always prefer not to have extra required fields. Can be logic adapted to not require it?Regards.

What I also realize is that the the operating unit is a required field in every model where it is introduced (e.g. purchase order). That would make all the repositories depend on the operating unit model when they are run on runbot. Quite a hard dependency to add to all repos.On the other side, the operating units could just be transparent in the process if you don't specify a flag 'Multi-Operating Unit', as it is now the company model for a user who is allowed to access to a single company and has the 'Multi-Company' flag unchecked. But would be running behind the scenes.On Tue, Dec 1, 2015 at 5:10 PM, Jordi Ballester Alomar <email@example.com> wrote:Frederic, the problem I see is that it virtually impacts all areas, so this repository would have lots of dependencies with other ones.If the concepts are adopted by the community, in time it makes sense that each repository should have it's module on operating units.But I'm open to any proposal by OCA members.On Tue, Dec 1, 2015 at 4:53 PM, Frédéric Clementi <firstname.lastname@example.org> wrote:Fantastic work Jordi.I am wondering if it does not deserve a specific branch2015-12-01 16:23 GMT+01:00 David Arnold <email@example.com>:
+1Jordi,To me that sounds like a cool work that allows to look at the company from different angle. I have ran through specification and looks like it can be applicable for many companies. I know even personally organisations that starting to implement "Business Units" working within one legal entity.That is quite typical for large companies.And if you can schedule a demo - definitely I will be happy to participate in it.///
