Changing Order Layout

Install the sale_layout module by selecting Sales Order Layout Improvement and clicking Configure in the Reconfigure wizard. It enables you to have a more flexible template than the standard order forms.

For example, you could put the following in the order lines:

  • a horizontal separator line,

  • titles and subtitles,

  • subtotals at the end of the section,

  • comments,

  • a page break.

This enables you to lay out a more elaborate, professional-looking quotation page. The module account_invoice_layout (installed automatically on installation of sale_layout), also gives you the same functionality for invoice templates.

The two figures Invoice using Customizable Layout and Printed Invoice show an invoice template in OpenERP and the resulting printed invoice.
