Purchase Order Approval Check Lists v.11
The tool to make sure a purchase order is ready for the next stage
Check lists per order state and company
As a result when a purchase order of this company gets its state updated, a check list would be automatically prepared.
How check list points might be missed
Often an order state change does not require fulfilment of all requirements. For example, when you cancel a purchase it seems unreasonable to approve vendor prices.
In such a case you should merely define states moving to which doesn't need confirmation. It is possible to do right under the check list settings on a checklist form.
One of important use cases is also the state 'RFQ sent'. Sometimes, approval is required for an order confirmation but not for contacting a vendor. This step might be even missed. In that situation you should define the same check points for the states 'RFQ' and 'RFQ Sent', while 'RFQ Sent' should be added as a no-checklist-required step.
Procurement checklist settings per company
Check list is unique per order state and a company
Purchase multi approval flow
Since the tool let assign user groups for each checklist line, you may force various employees from different departments to take part in procurement. In such a way it is guaranteed that all actions are done and carefully checked.
When Odoo would warn purchase users to confirm check lists
Odoo will scan check lists as soon as a user tries to change an order state. In particular it happens when:
- A user tries to confirm an order ('RFQ' > 'Purchase Order' and 'RFQ Sent' > 'Purchase Order').
- An order is triggered for approval ('RFQ' > 'Approval' and 'RFQ Sent' > 'Approval').
- A user locks ('Purchase order' > 'Locked') or unlocks ('Locked' > 'Purchase order') a purchase.
- A user prints or sends an RFQ ('RFQ' > 'RFQ Sent').
- A user cancels an order (any state > 'Cancelled') or re-set cancelled RFQ ('Cancelled' > 'Draft').
Surely, you are not obliged to have a check list for each state. Scanning of empty checklist is always considered as successful.
Besides, if you had custom stages, transitions to those would be also taken into account.
Purchase approval involves various user roles
Order state can't be changed until checklist is confirmed
Odoo scans check list progress for any attempt of state update
Indicative checklist to-do
Super checklist user
In such a case you should assign the super check list access level for yourself or for any responsible manager. A user with such rights would be able both to change an order sate without approving check list and confirm any check point disregarding security restrictions.

According to the current Odoo Apps Store policies:
- every module bought for the version 12.0 and prior gives you an access to the all versions up to 12.0.
- starting from the version 13.0, every version of the module should be purchased separately.
- disregarding the version, purchasing a tool grants you a right for all updates and bug fixes within a major version.
Take into account that Odoo Tools team does not control those policies. By all questions please contact the Odoo Apps Store representatives directly.
Unzip source code of purchased tools in one of your Odoo add-ons directory
Re-start the Odoo server
Turn on the developer mode (technical settings)
Update the apps' list (the apps' menu)

Follow the guidelines on the app's page if those exist.
Yes, sure. Take into account that Odoo automatically adds all dependencies to a cart. You should exclude previously purchased tools.
Regretfully, we do not have a technical possibility to provide individual prices.
Yes, all modules marked in dependencies are absolutely required for a correct work of our tool. Take into account that price marked on the app page already includes all necessary dependencies.
No, third party apps can not be used on Odoo Online.
Red / orange warning itself does not influence features of the app. Regretfully, sometimes our modules do not pass standard automatic tests, since the latter assumes behavior which is in conflict with our apps goals. For example, we change price calculation, while standard Odoo module tests compare final price to standard algorithm.
So, first of all, please check deployed database features. Does everything work correctly?
If you still assume that warning influences real features, please contact us and forward full installation logs and the full lists of deployed modules (including core and third party ones).
As soon as you purchased the app, the button 'Deploy on Odoo.sh' will appear on the app's page in the Odoo store. Push this button and follow the instructions.
Take into account that for paid tools you need to have a private GIT repository linked to your Odoo.sh projects
Odoo demonstration databases (live previews)
For this app we might provide a free personalized demo database.
By your request we will prepare an individual live preview database, where you would be able to apply any tests and to check assumptions during 14 days.
In case you have faced any bugs or inconsistent behavior, do not hesitate to contact us. We guarantee to provide fixes during 60 days after a purchase, while even after this period we are strongly interested to improve our tools.
Please include in your request as many details as possible: screen shots, Odoo server logs, full description of how to re-produce your problem, and so on. Usually it takes a few business days to prepare a working plan by an issue (if a bug is confirmed) or provide you with guidelines what should be done (otherwise).
Public features request and module ideas (free development)
We are strongly motivated to improve our tools and would be grateful for any sort of feedback. In case your requirements are of public use and might be efficiently implemented, the team would include those into our to-do list.
Such to-do list is processed on a regular basis and does not assume extra fees. Altough we cannot promise deadlines and final design, it might be a good way to get desired features without investments and risks.
New features and extra Odoo services (individual development)
Each of our apps might be customized and extended to suit your specific requirements.
Our customization team fulfills not only such jobs but it also provides a full range of Odoo services. From simple modifications and consultations to complex enterprise projects. The team has completed over 100 implementations since 2012, and might help with any technical or business needs.
