ERPNext 14... What would you like to see?

Here are a couple ideas:

  1. Addition of tag fields, they work similar to child tables, more like table multi select fields BUT without the need for a child table to exist in the background.
  2. Change the design for child tables. The UI/UX of frappe and ERPNext is simply gorgeous however could we have a lighter or less “prominent” design for child tables? (So that they look unanimous with the rest of the form, instead of having grey borders etc)

I ever implemented a multi select control which stores the values in a data field just like tags and can be used in child table.

Yip, trust accounting is rather tedious with journal work-arounds, and way too much development work to adapt the accounting module for specific trust accounting. I see that there is a module in Odoo but I do not think it is well tested.

Adding a production plan for “process manufacturing”.


Thanks for info on bin i did not know about that and it realy help me. Also i dont undestand what you ment by “can convert UOM in ledger “views”.” can you provide more data or example. If not my used case would be you have multiple UOM on a item and want t check inventory base on UOM.

Check “Include UOM” field on Stock Ledger/Balance report, that converts available qty from base UOM to your specified UOM based on conversion specified.

(maybe we should label this “convert UOM”?)

Thank you.
This work

I am really new here, so please don’t mind if what I say makes less sense. I always thought Frappe was the platform (empty house) and ERPNext was the monolith (fully-furnished house)

Maybe you could say frappe is more like the land :smiley:

I’m new to ERP Next and am considering offering it to my current customers. I appreciate your content contribution here so I wanted to reach out. What’s the #1 piece of advice you’d have for me considering this?

ABA file support would be nice. Excel is nice and all but banks usually work with ABA files, this would save a ton of conversion time

Thanks. I’ve been using Sap B1 for 18 years and Danamics 365 for about a year. Recently, using ERPnext 13.5, I am making an ERP for electric vehicle charger operation. I’m having a hard time finding a manual for developers.


Welcome to the community! Please don’t share your email publicly to avoid spam.
You can find the developer documentation here:

The expense entry for things like utilities as mentioned before.
As well as the stock to asset movement.
EG Capturing taxes back from credit accounts, and removal of stock items, and creation of an asset.

I make computers and servers for a living. Some of these are for my business, others are for customers. I only keep stock of parts. If I want to make a server for the business the current method is terrible with all the journal entries that go with it. This is something that should just be there.

To me it seems like ERPNext has great features and a good skeleton, but too many important things are missing. Like utility payments, sales costs (shipping costs being linked to a sales order), creating assets from stock items. These are all things I’ve done at every manufacturer I’ve worked at, and now am having to do in ERPNext.
Except ERPNext, I have to design the modules myself or go through a dozen various journal entries and hope they all balance at the end.

Dont wanna spam so: Calendly Replacement - Display Google Calendar internally
Basically wish to somewhat replicate Calendly within ERPNext


+1 on the ABA file support. Also, batch statements. Also adding the idea of a “booking” system to the calendar would open ERPNext up for hotel and field service industries, also automotive and other small businesses that make appointments and such. If ERPNext is serious about SME’s they should think more about the quality of life improvements for small businesses.

But doesnt that require a link field in the child table?
