By default, Odoo keeps only one shipping address for a customer on all his sales orders and invoices. So, anytime a customer changes the delivery address on his account, it gets updated on all his previous orders as well and the initial address gets lost. The receipt thus produced would reflect the new address. This can also cause a problem during cross-checking the orders and in making reports.
Our Odoo Keep initial address for delivery module provides an easy solution by saving the original shipping address used by the customer while placing any order. So, even if the customer updates the delivery address later, you can always find the correct shipping address for the particular order and easily print out the picking/delivery slip.
It also allows the admin to update the shipping addresses on the previous orders from the same customer without any initial address.
- Adds an additional field ‘Initial Address’ in the transfers sub-menu of an order to store the shipping address used in the order.
- The admin can select multiple orders from same customer and bulk update the initial shipping address.
- Facilitates generation of picking slip with the original shipping address used at the time placing the order.
- Eliminates the need to manually add the shipping address of the customer in case he updates it.
