Changing an Invoice
View the Data to Change
On the top of this invoice, you'll see the Invoice Date, and under the Other Info tab you'll see the Salesperson.
To see the original Accounting Date, we'll first need to click an entry under the Journal items tab.
On the entry, click the Account link.
From here, click the Journal Items smart button.
Search for entry based on the related invoice, and note the Date column.
Use the breadcrumbs to navigate back to the invoice.
When on the invoice, click the Change button.
This will present a pop-up modal for the invoice change wizard. Change the Salesperson, Invoice Date, and/or the Accounting Date. When finished, hit CHANGE.
You'll then see your changes reflected on the invoice:
And on the journal entry, as well:
The Account Invoice Change module is the technical foundation for modifying invoices. It creates a wizard and permissions for making invoice changes that can be handled by other modules. This particular module implements the ability to change the Salesperson and Accounting Date fields.
There is a new Transient Model (Wizard) `account.invoice.change` with the following fields:
`invoice_id` Many2one field for the Invoice to be changed
`invoice_company_id` Many2one field related to the `invoice_id`'s company id
`user_id` Many2one field for the Salesperson
`date` Date field for the Accounting date
An action button 'Change' is added to the account invoice form view that will display the new account invoice change view for the wizard.
