Subject RE: Credit Memos - Please give me your process and opinions!
Date Fri, 10 Nov 2017 05:30:46 GMT
We don't have any issues fixing it and contributing back but ai want to
make sure we understand how the system is behaving and we dont miss any
thing.  I just noticed that the system is creating Invoice Type Customer
Return and Invoice type Purchase Return.  If we fully understand from
the ofbiz experts what the system is doing we can fix it.

Any system not behaving in expected ways (read: as competing solutions
is disqualified in the eyes of potential adopters. In our situation (in
general, and in this situation in particular) this is more often than
influenced by decisions makers and influencers in the accounting
and auditing companies.

The easy answer is: fix the problem. Yet that easy answer will require
quite the effort applied. You can either fix it in your own implemented
system, or wait on the OFBiz community to help you.
