Requirement:
Have a new Delivery Rule that will generate shipments based on the Promised Date of the Order.

Scenario:
Quotation is sent to Customer for providing goods/services at a future specific date.
On quote acceptance, Quote converted to "On Credit Order".
Complete document

Current behavior:
If delivery rule = Manual, [Generate Shipments] process has to be run daily.

If delivery rule = Force or Complete, Shipment is created but date = order date. There is no reference to the Date Promised.

No other current delivery rules provide a better alternative.

Desired behavior:
If delivery rule = Date Promised, shipments are generated with the date of Promised Date from the Order.
(Accounting issue: posting future entries is problematic. As a workaround, shipments can be generated but not completed automatically (and not deletable).

Alternate:
Instead of a new delivery rule, if date promised is added to the shipment and delivery note, future deliveries could be easier managed.

Nice to have:
Calendar display (similar to resource calendar) of future shipments in order to manage the process of shipments more effectively.
