Account Move Post Block

Beta License: AGPL-3 OCA/account-invoicing Translate me on Weblate Try me on Runbot

This module allows you to block the post of a journal entry when a Post Block Reason has been provided. The moves will be waiting for post by a Manager.

Table of contents


  • Go to ‘Invoicing / Configuration / Invoicing / Purchase Approval Block Reasons’ and create the blocking reasons as needed, providing a name and a description. A field ‘Active’ allows you to deactivate the reason if you do not plan to use it any more.
  • Assign the security group 'Release Journal Entry with post block' to users that should be able to release the block. Users in group 'Invoicing / Billing Administrator' are by default assigned to this group.


Set the Journal Entry Post Block

  1. Go to ‘Invoicing’ and go to create an Invoice or a Bill.
  2. Indicate the post block reason (found in the 'Other Info' tab).

Search existing Journal Entries

There is a filter ‘Blocked’ to search for moves that are blocked for post. It is also possible to search journal entries with a specific block reason.

Confirm the Journal Entry

  1. Press the button ‘Post’. If there's a post block, you will need to request a Billing Manager release the post block in order to approve it.

Release the entry post block

While the Journal Entry is in draft, members of security group ‘Release Journal Entry with post block’ can see a button ‘Release Post Block’ and click on it. From this point and on, anyone seeing that Journal Entry will be able to validate it.

Notifications to followers

Followers of the Journal entry receive notifications when a post block has been set or released.
