We have talked to various SMEs and came to know that most of the people are looking for data entry and a little more. When it comes to a little more, what they are happy with is a way to drill down the summary to reach to detail level (i.e. source record).
By keeping this in perspective we tried to understand their common data entry points. We were surprised to know that their need were pretty simple. Most of them just wanted way to post different types of financial transactions (e.g. a purchase invoice, a sales receipt, a petty cash, cash deposit and withdrawal, a bank interest statement, etc). In accounting language, all these transactions are recorded through a document called voucher. As part of this article we have mapped commonly used vouchers with Adempiere’s documents.
