CarlitoxicHello. I am testing Tryton and cannot understand how the company and party modules interact. I see only one secuence, this means our company, employees, customers and providers will share the same secuence?21:50
-!- rednul_( has joined #tryton21:54
CarlitoxicIf I add a company, a party with the same name is "added" (?) , with the accounting info included.  But if I add a party with accounting information, a company is not created. Companies do not seem to have any code or ID, i am completely lost!22:02
CarlitoxicI'm not that lost anymore, I got that in company there should be just one company (our) in most cases, I hope i'm right.22:13
CarlitoxicHowever, we already have a customer numbers, how can we keep our cutomer codes within Tryton?22:18
udonoCarlitoxic: hi, party is the base model in Tryton to collect *all persons and organisations which are related to the enterprise (=company). company is based on party and extend it with features of your own company.22:22
udonoCarlitoxic: You can see party as a generic container.22:23
Carlitoxicudono: thanks, I understand that already, I was quite lost at first.22:24
CarlitoxicBut i'am affraid that there is no such a thing as a customer code field, other than it's party secuence number22:25
Carlitoxicudono: is that right?22:27
udonoCarlitoxic: there is no difference between party types implemented for Version 1.6. There are some prototype moules around for 1.4. But nothing official.22:32
udonoCarlitoxic: and there is only one sequence or all parties.22:32
Carlitoxicudono: I think I would be quite difficult to migrate to tryton as our customer base have numbers assigned, do you have any ideas?22:33
udonoCarlitoxic: yes, you can import sequences, which are at least strings, as you like22:34
udonoCaCarlitoxic: its late here, I go sleep. You may ask your questions on google groups, to answer later.22:35
Carlitoxicudono: thank you very much22:36
Carlitoxicudono: and good night!22:36
cedkCarlitoxic: hi23:19
Carlitoxiccedk: hi23:19
cedkCarlitoxic: in Tryton there is no difference between customer and supplier because we think that one party can be both23:19
cedkCarlitoxic: but if you want to keep your old numbering, you can write a little module that make code writable23:20
cedkCarlitoxic: but you should define the rules for numbering23:20
cedkCarlitoxic: or you can add two new field to take the customer/supplier numbers23:21
cedkTryton is a business software that is highly customizable with few code23:21
CarlitoxicI saw that the code is rather an arbirtrary field, ie: if I change the sequence (from party config/seq.) i can add a party with some other kind of seq. then change the seq. back...23:22
cedkCarlitoxic: yes it is possible as soon as the code stay unique23:23
Carlitoxicadding a "customer code" field would be perhaps more practical tough23:24
cedkCarlitoxic: I can not help you to take the decision as I don't know the usage of this code23:25
CarlitoxicI don't think changing the sequence back and forth is something our users could live with23:25
cedkCarlitoxic: I don't think too23:25
Carlitoxici have found a lot of docs on how to install/setup/modify tryton, but none on general usage, was i looking in the wrong place?23:28
Carlitoxiccedk: is there a user manual or something similar?23:31
cedkCarlitoxic: no23:33
cedkCarlitoxic: our main issue is that Tryton is a generic business software23:34
cedkand even more a platform to develop your own business software23:34
cedkCarlitoxic: so the usage is very multiple23:34
cedkbut we try to keep GUI intuitive23:35
Carlitoxiccedk: I understand, it would be quite difficult to have a manual because of the broad application field23:35
cedkCarlitoxic: but you are welcome to ask question on tryton mailing list23:35
