Base Revision (abstract)

Beta License: AGPL-3 OCA/server-ux Translate me on Weblate Try me on Runbot

Making revision(s) of a document is a common need across many area.

This module does not provide a functionality by itself but an abstract model to implement revision capality in other models (e.g. purchase orders, sales orders, budgets, expenses...).

Note: To be able to use this module in a new model you will need some development.

See sale_order_revision as an example of implementation.

Example with sale_order_revision installed,

On a cancelled orders, you can click on the "New copy of Quotation" button. This will create a new revision of the quotation, with the same base number and a '-revno' suffix appended. A message is added in the chatter saying that a new revision was created.

In the form view, a new tab is added that lists the previous revisions, with the date they were made obsolete and the user who performed the action.

The old revisions of a sale order are flagged as inactive, so they don't clutter up searches.

Special Remarks: Starting on version 14, this module was splitted from sale_order_revision to,

  • base_revision
  • sale_order_revision
