This module extends the functionality of purchases adding a new state Approved in purchase orders before the Purchase Order state. Additionally add the possibility to set back to draft a purchase order in all the states previous to Purchase Order.

In this new Approved state:

  • You cannot modify the purchase order.
  • However, you can go back to draft and pass through the workflow again.
  • The incoming shipments are not created. You can create them by clicking the Convert to Purchase Order button, also moving to state Purchase Order.

The new state diagram is depicted below:
