    Hi All,

    We are planning to implement Compiere in our organization and in the discovery phase we found that we will be needing project ID as one of the chartfields as we are a service based organization and we work only on projects . We need a way to tie all our revenue to the projects.Say when we book a Vendor Invoice need to tie the invoice to a project to find out the cost incurred by the project and in the same way for Customer Invoices too. Right now I am not able to find this option. Is there a way to cinfigure this in Compiere.

    Also would like know if any body has tweaked Compiere system to cater to such a demand.

    Thanks in advance

    Any help in this regard is highly appreciated as our Go or No Go for Compiere is based on this.

    Regards,

      C_QuotationLine.C_Project_ID

      all have C_Project_ID

      can auto mapping to FACT

      Hi Venkata,

      You just need to enable project as element from the accounting schema like explained here:

      Hi Carlos Ruiz,

      Thanks for the update. I followed the details given in the link. But when I navigate to GL Distribution as instructed in the link I am not able to find Project as an option there. Is there anything that I am missing out. I have installed the Compiere 3.2 version not the web enabled one. Would this be a problem?
