Creating Delivery Note from Sales Invoice

I just realize it is possible to create a Delivery Note from Sales Invoice.  Can this be disabled? I only want to create a sales invoice from a sales order.  Moreover, it allows for multiple delivery notes to be created against a single sales order (it loops like SO -> DN -> SI -> DN again — so two DNs are created). This may be a bug.

Thats a good suggestion - maybe we can keep making of invoice from Sales Order only.

Sales Invoice can be made in three ways:


1. Sales Order -> Delivery Note -> Sales Invoice (my preferred way)
2. Sales Order -> Sales Invoice (for non stock items or for POS)
3. Sales Invoice directly (for POS)

But the the Sales Invoice should be the end of the cycle. There shouldn’t be a “Create Delivery Note” from Sales Invoice. Is this a sound suggestion?

Here is what I am thinking:

Sales Order > Delivery Note (all un-delivered items)
Sales Order > Delivery Note (only billed but not delivered items)

Sales Order > Sales Invoice (all un-billed items)
Sales Order > Sales Invoice (only delivered but not billed items)

This seems to be the cleanest to me and all status can be monitored only against Sales Order. Right now I have to monitor Status against Delivery Note, Sales Order and Sales Invoice.

Hi Rushabh,


Sorry, I’m not understanding what you wrote.  Can you restate as I’d like to feedback on this. Thank.s

Sales Order will be the central point of all fulfilment. From here you can create delivery note, sales invoice based on all combinations.

While the Sales Order is the starting point, the end-point to complete the sales cycle should always be the Sales Invoice.  


Is that in line with what you are thinking?

We need sales order then sales invoice then delivery note then packing slip also,

some industries are practicing this.

Why do you want to disable this?

Super old thread :slight_smile: But in our use case, it created confusion when creating DNs from invoices.

Our use case was: either create:

SO -> DN - SI (DN deducts the inventory)
or
SO -> SI (either with deduction from inventory or not)

Not saying this is true for all businesses, but this was true for us back in 2013 (and still true today).
