What is the intended behavior when orders with different departments set,
are consolidated?

Good question.  I have no idea off the top of my head.


We need to rethink this more carefully for 1.4.  Feedback would be welcome.

So 1.3 does whatever (still unknown) 1.2 does?
Whatever that is, it is most likely not what one wants.

The only thing I can think of, is causing departments to be associated with line items alo projects.

Force grouping by department, and reset running numbers within a departmental section of an order or invoice.

1 department = no change from current behavior.

more than 1 = For invoice and order output, use multiple sections, headed by the department.

For financial tracking, on a full payment, divide appropriately by line item into departments. For a partial payment...go fish.:( I have no idea how to handle a partial payment. At least, not any that has any logic behind it. I suppose you could pop up an apportion-by-department screen when entering payments, but that doesn't sound like something that goes well with the workflow.
