If I understand it correctly all the CoA present will only be usable after they actually will be merged into ERPNext. And there is no way to utilize the unmerged ones to or apply them in any way (by importing i.e).
is that understanding correct?
If so, when do you think they will be merged (and likewise available?)
for now it (if my understanding above is correct) it looks as if there has been done a low of work at charts.erpnext.com which has no usage value whatsoever yet.
(I have an instance with a company located in Spain. And can not manage to Apply the Spanish Chart of accounts)
How I can select certain chart of account from the verified (or even the not verified)?
For the time being, I selected the country to be Lebanon (from the system settings) but it does not give me the chart of account that I need, I need to use certain one of those verified (or even not verified), how?
In other words: How I can determine the active (the used) chart of account?
Based on what the current chart of account is selected? From where I can change it?
if you take a ‘non-verified’ one and copy it to the ‘verified’ folder (to be found somewhere in /home/frappe/frappe-bench/apps/erpnext/...) it should turn up. I tried this once (Spain was my example) but it seems that there is code missing, so it would not work. So I guess ‘non-verified’ means ‘not ready’ as well.
Also if you do that you will get problems on updating I suppose (because you apply changes in the local erpnext git repository). I guess those can be dealt with but you’d need to know what you are doing git-wise.
Wonderful. Actually I changed the country code to one of the codes that are existed in the verified folder and it works fine.
The question is: how I can build the json file from the tree that appears in the interface or from the exported excel file? Or I have to write it manually?
As I understand that https://charts.erpnext.com/ is used to let users contributed their CoA based on their countries and it will be merged with ERPnext later on (after checking).
But I did not find any tool to create json file from the CoA in https://charts.erpnext.com/
That is why I looking to know the method to create json file from the CoA so I can use it as a reference instead of creating CoA everytime.
If there is no tool to create json file from CoA, then I have to create this json file manually. Hope if someone can advise me and help me.
I did not finish the CoA to know if the result will be json. But I created one and I did not see any button that let me generate json or download.
Yes, the same thing happened with me, but I created new CoA in new name (not used name). Really I do not know what is the benefit of fork if it always give us that duplicated name and can not do any modification.
Maybe this is a too late response. But I hope it still helps those who need
I made a custom copy of the CoA for my company by changing the content of the file, in my case id. But only change the text of the CoA itself (starting from the root Asset downward). Don’t change the code above it, especially the name of the country.
There are 3 files I changed in order to give global default for anyone creating new company or new sites (I use multi tenants):
If only json file is changed, a new site will have to choose the CoA. Otherwise the py file will be chosen by default.
But if the py files are translated, the default fields in the company is not filled in by default accounts.
Disclaimer: this customization will not survive ERPNext update.
I hope this can be useful for anybody. But still I need guidance if this method is overdo (except those suggesting it will change when doing updates).
