Is there any way to edit DocTypes to uncheck "Is Submittable"?

So this is causing a lot of problems for me because I need to be able to edit transactions without cancelling and amending them. I’m not a developer so if there is an easy way to do this please let me know.


@Mark1700 open doctype list , chose your doctype . and uncheck “is submittable” , (you need to activate developer mode).
I dont recomand you to do so , however you can change the field you want to edit to (allow on submit). this way you can update it even after submit .

ok cool. And how do I enable developer mode?

@Mark1700 open your app terminal and run :

  bench set-config developer_mode 1

ehh, I’m not sure how to do that. I’m not a developer. Do you mind explaining a bit further? Like where exactly do I go?

this is the terminal open in my app folder . (bench)
write the command there and click enter.
probably you should ask the person who installed erpnext for you .

@Mark1700 are you running a hosted app or is it on your local machine ?

ahh, I’m running a hosted app. Then I’ll just use “allow on submit”. I just tried it and it works for what I need it for.
