Structural simplification of ERPNext modules

Hi There

I have attempted to re-group the forms within ERPNext to most closely align with underlying business function to facilitate ease of implementation -

Modules (New arrangement)

o Company
 Cost centers / locations
 Populate (Inventory, Supplier, Customer, Capital, HR - Master info)
 Chart of Accounts (auto-generate inventory, customer, supplier)
o Business activities
 Additional Forms and Fields (option to delete forms)
 Roles and Permissions / Authorizations
 Work flows (Form states and transitional rules)
o Global Settings
 Email & Settings
 Printing
 Integrations (Bank API, Shopify, Payment gateways)

o Leads
o Customer (Dimension Table)
o Sales Order (checkpoints: Draft, Approved, Production, Picked, Delivered)
o Sales Credits (checkpoints: Draft, Approved) - can be processed later
o Sales Invoice (checkpoints: Outstanding, Cheque, Paid) - consolidate with SO?
o On-going support (circular economy)
o Warranties (checkpoints : Draft, approved, not started, Closed)
o Ecommerce (Web Forms - Shopping cart, Surveys, Subscriptions)

o Material Requests (checkpoint : Draft, approved, ordered, Rejected)

Good try. Efforts appreciated )

Well thought out. If this was how it was from the start it would been easier. But after 1 yr of invested time would be hard to switch. But hey, go on send create a new settings page or fork it and see how it goes. We will have something to compare it to.
