Automatically update order totals when editing an order (configurable)


Automatically update order totals when editing an order in admin area (editing, deleting products, etc).

But as we may have quite complex discount rules and tax rules which could be changed since an order was placed, then we should allow a store owner to choose whether order totals should be also updated (make this option configurable)

It is really VERY complex to tackle it since it has to consider the products and their atributes and their inventory, weight, attributes and thier price/weight adjustments; regular, old and tiered prices, special prices and discount and tax rules (all which change from time to time); shipping expenses etc. etc.
In my experience it is very uncommon. If you have inventory control (which is very important for certain kinds of products which have limited availavility, such as clothes, shoes, etc.) then changes are rare. The number of votes and requests for that are indicative that there is not much demand for it.

I would really like this functionality:)

This seems to be a deal breaker for my client. I can't believe nobody needs this.

This is a must needed functionality ... Please make it in the next version please ...

Please, oh please, oh please!!! This is a definite must!

Please make this configurable! There is too much room for error when making an adjustment manually.

I agree. This is a pain to manually recalculate totals. Almost simpler to cancel the order and create a new one.

It really is. The default should be to auto recalculate totals, and stores with more complex special pricing (which is the reason stated that it is not this way currently) should have the ability to add special rules if needed.

This is the kind of thing that should be handled in an external inventory management system. NopCommerce cannot possibly be expected to do everything.

I agree that nopCommerce can't do everything. ...But calculating an order's total is a basic functionnality for an ecommerce application(When I say basic I mean basic functionality and not necessarely basic programming).
nopCommerce already does it when users add or remove stuff from their cart and when they checkout. It would be nice to have it in the admin section.

Oh.... I know it is really complicate to implement but how i can describe my feeling right now that it really really and really need it appear in next version of Nop.

I would make it as an option to choose whether order totals should be automatically calculated or not. I think its a very important feature!

I agree that this should be a configurable feature. An auto-update feature would certainly create a lesser margin for error, save "_time", and brain-power for the site administrators who see its value!

nopCommerce has moved to GitHub and you can see more details about this issue here: https://github.com/nopSolutions/nopCommerce/issues/8
