Odoo (OpenERP) 8 Point of Sale – Assign unique serial number


Click here to download from Odoo Apps

Assign unique serial number when we receive product during purchase process and when we sale from POS, at that time also use the same serial number which we have assigned during receiving.
This is the main feature in this module that we have created in Odoo v8.

In below screen, we can see that we have marked Incoming, Outgoing tracking using serial number. So now whenever we sale or receive using warehouse module, at that time serial number is compulsory otherwise we can not deliver or receive this particular product.
