[Vtigercrm-developers] Import Step3 not showing in several modules

I've opened a ticket on track to adress the issue :
I've managed to actually import properly invoices having same subject
without any Step3 involvement.
It all boils down to a unsafe group by subject clause whether
createdtime should be used.
My fix works also for Salesorders and I guess for any other inventory
Still having subsequent issue inherent to the inventory module(A) export
linked to another inventory module(B) (ie. exporting an invoice linked
to a salesorder),
latter's subject could be the same as an another(C) (ie. a another
salesorder with the same subject as B).
In turn of course, the app could not determine whether A->B or A->C...
because the export data
by itself is not safe.
-We cannot use a recordid since it changes for one install. to another
-We should not use the subject since the app allows different invoices
(salesorder,quotes,..etc) to have same subject
-So I propose we could use createdtime which distinguish safely & properly
Simply put adding the createdtime field side-by-side to subject (ie for
B/C) in the export would remedy.
