Does this has any relations with Request for Payment?

EDIT: move this question to V13 Feature Contributions: Dunning and Shipment

For the subscription following calendar month, does it have option to calculate prorate (elapsed dates or coming dates)?

Any reason why would I get a Server Error: IndexError: list index out of range? When I open the point of sale?

Hi. Please share your experiences on new POS when you have done some exhaustive tests. Thanks.

I will

I plan to roll it out next week in a life environment, though low traffic


Nice… Is v13 will support multi currency payroll?

Hi, I’m using v13.0.0-beta.3 and couldn’t upgrade to beta 4.

I did “bench update --pull” then “bench update --patch” and got this:

During handling of the above exception, another exception occurred:

Any idea?

It seems you are missing ‘paytmchecksum’:

try to install this in your bench env:

  • goto bench folder
  • then write : source env/bin/activate
  • then sudo pip install paytmchecksum

Thanks @Mohammed_Redha, I was able to install paytmchecksum, but after running bench update --patch again a similar error was shown:

module = load_doctype_module(self.name, self.module)
  File "/home/informemedico/erpnext/erpnext/apps/frappe/frappe/modules/utils.py", line 206, in load_doctype_module
raise ImportError('Module import failed for {0} ({1})'.format(doctype, module_name + ' Error: ' + str(e)))
ImportError: Module import failed for Paytm Settings (frappe.integrations.doctype.paytm_settings.paytm_settings Error: No module named 'Crypto')

I did pip install Crypto, but it’s already installed.

Any hint?

Why don’t you simply try bench update command, it should take care of dependencies.

It is in the roadmap. let’s see if we can develop it before the v13 production release.

Requesting a demo live instance on beta.erpnext.com, for a larger public review.

I can not complete bench update on a fresh erpnext clean installation. My mariadb is on another server.

Patching sites...
Migrating vgs.computer
mariadb service is not running.
Cannot run bench migrate without the services running.
If you are running bench in development mode, make sure that bench is running:

$ bench start

Otherwise, check the server logs and ensure that all the required services are running.

I solved this by adding db_host to /sites/common_site_config.json

Is this really beta version? After 4 beta versions, I still see a lots of fixes included in each beta release which means, there are still so many bugs :smiley:

Beta period is now longer than development and alpha phases and still don’t know when it is finished to be stable version :expressionless:
