The bank module makes the bank field required in bank accounts:
However we find that this field is not necessary in most of our customer uses, and it makes their lives harder, including the process of migrating from previous software.
For example, during the last financial crisis many banks disappeared in Spain and those were purchased by other banks. Bank account numbers remain the same but now owned by new entities.
So there’s no easy way to determine which is the current bank of a given account number (well, it requires googling a little bit).
The thing is that this information is introduced because Tryton requires it but it has no practical advantages.
Could we drop the required attribute in the bank field?
What do you think? Do others find themselves in the same situation?
