What is a recurring order? Is this the same like a contract that will be renewed? RecurringOrderVersusContract

A recurring order is an order which repeats at a predetermined frequency - this would normally be some contractual arrangement to initate such a scheme. eg A monthly charge for web-space, the contract is until further notice effectively with a monthly fee.

Why only autoinvoice when all items on the order are dummies?

Because orders for physical goods require some physcial fulfillment ie the customer will want to see the goods. A system of fulfillment requires some paperwork to initiate the pick and pack/dispatch of the goods. Only a service, consulting, rental, support contract, a charge for labour etc could be invoiced automatically (I might be missing something -so correct me here if I'm wrong!!) In every case these items would be defined as dummies in webERP - ie no physical stock exists - when no physical fulfillment prompt is required then it is appropriate to allow auto-inovice.

What has a quotation to do with a recurring order? Quotation = offerte?
