Hello Bushair,

In stable addons it will not handle multi company environment.For that there are some multi company module which add company_id field in the required object and now you can manage your database with multi company environment.
There is not any major changes in multi-company related module, you can check the following link for some help regarding multi-company module list:

Hope this will help you.

How could manage multicompany on trunk versión? I don't know if it's a bug, but even if I installed multicompany module, I can't see the field company on user preferences as said on forums and documentation, so I would like to know if it has been changed to another "place".
If it's right, I would like to know how can I idenfy a sales order, a picking, invoice or accountancy for a company, the possibility of defining crossed bussiness workflow between companies and so on... I can't find any option on new 6.0version...

Currently I can not even install multicompany
I created some branches with a uniform layout for SO/PO/PICK/Invoice

which shows company in the first line of each document
until now it is not accepted and even the basic layouts of SO/PO are "equal"
the fields are still not in the same sequence

I'm sure they announced multicompany as included on core for 6.0 several times...

Ferdinand ... I could install but I can't see the functionality. There si some extra multicompany modules like multicompany_product (axelor) that I couldn't install.

Carlos... link does not work... Please, could you write the correct one... Thank you very much...
