This plugin enables a keyboard-based product search on sales documents.
While Erply's standard functionality allows products to be searched with using only keyboard, the list of search results shows little information. On the other hand, the detailed search window can only be navigated with a mouse. This plugin combines the best of both — keyboard-based navigation and a detailed view.
Plugin can be enabled in apps.erply.com:
When the plugin is enabled, then on sales documents (Invoices, Orders, Quotes) and inventory documents (Inventory Transfers, Write-Offs, Registrations), the floating box appears when searching for some product to add on a document. For that:
The window contains product code, name, EAN/UPC, amount in stock/reserved/ordered, price and price with VAT. It is easy to look the list of products - whether scrolling up and down or by moving with arrow keys. The active row is surrounded by red border. When clicking on that product or pressing Enter, the product will be selected to sales document.
The price shown in the search box is the price list price applying to selected customer in selected location.
When clicking on product code, the product card will open in new tab.
It is possible to move the floating box by clicking on the header bar and dragging it with mouse.
If no products were found, then the following message is displayed:
The described functionality works both in Classic back office and Berlin back office.
