A better way to find documents related to each other, follow their state and take action

Registered by Mihai Satmarean on 2011-05-10

We use openERP in an old people environment.
Those guys are hard to make understand connections between the documents and some other IT logical stuff.

We thought about this scenario:
One document refers to another, so it should be possible to have in any form view a button called "Related documents" to do something similar with the button BoM structure from the Bom form View.

So if I press "Related documents" on SO0021
I would have a tree view with the fields that can be equivalent from documents:
Eg:
Reference - Date planned - Status
PO0233 - 11.05.2011 - Approved
MO0122 - 17.05.2011 - Waiting goods
IN00211 - 16.05.2011 - Available
OUT2122 - 19.05.2011 - Not available
SAJ/2011/231 - 19.05.2011 - Draft
etc

Double click on one line should open the document,
I would also go further with this and even to have a calendar and a gantt view of the documents related like this.
