We know, Odoo only save one contact address for a vendor on all the purchase orders and vendor bills related to him. So, anytime the address of the vendor is changed, it gets updated on all his previous orders as well and the initial address gets lost. The bill 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 purchase module provides an easy solution by saving the original address of the vendor on the purchase orders. So, even if there is a need to update his address later, you can always find the correct address details for the particular order and easily print out the vendor bill and purchase Order receipt.
It also allows the admin to update the contact address on the previous orders of the same vendor without any initial address.
- Adds an additional field ‘Initial Address’ in the purchase orders to store the address used in the order.
- Thus, facilitates generation of the vendor bill and Purchase Order receipt with the original contact address of the vendor used at the time placing the order.
- Also, the admin can select multiple orders from the same vendor and bulk update the initial address for purchase orders.
