This module adds a sale quotation sequence.
Sale Quotation: Sale process in draft stage just informing prices and element of communication. Sale Order: Sale process confirmed, the customer already have a compromise with us in terms of pay an invoice and receive our product or service.
Originally OpenERP manage only 1 sequence for this 2 documents, then the sales order won and lost manage the same sequence losting almost all lost quotations in terms of sequences, making so difficult understand qith a quick view if we are good or bad in terms of logistic and sale process already confirmed.
When you create a quotation, it is numbered using the 'sale.quotation' sequence. When you confirm a quotation, its orginal number is saved in the 'origin' field and the sale order gets a new number, retrieving it from 'sale.order' sequence.
