Sale Order Customer Free Reference

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

The goal of this module is to improve on the client_order_ref on sale.order.

By default, Odoo only has one field to handle the customer reference of a sales order.

However, an order provided by the buyer can contain an id (PO number) and a free reference. When exchanging with the other parties, you sometimes need to differentiate them. For instance, this is required by some EDI flows.

To help with this, this module adds two specific fields for them and transforms the client_order_ref standard field into a computed one.

The two new fields are also passed on to generated invoices.
