I created, submited and Closed a sales order but there’s still no entries made to the sales account, how can I make erpnext to record sales directly from SO?
your best option is to use sales invoice other than sales order if you would like to see bookings in accounting.
Got it, and how can I categorize the sales, for example,
Under sales, I’d like to have sub accounts for Groceries, Hardware, etc.
Use items group or customer group. There is nothing on sales invoice to group.
Go to the items in the item list
Go to the section called Sales, Purchases and Accounts in each Item list.
Choose the expense and income accounts you want to associate with the items.
This should work.
Thanks to all your replies @Muzzy and @olamide. Much appreciated
