The "Editable Payment Plan" feature allows to edit and change an invoice payment plan if the invoice is not fully paid.

In Openbravo an invoice is fully paid if all the invoice's payment plan line does have a payment made or received related.

This feature also supports the removal of not paid payment plan lines therefore new payment plan lines can be created.
This action is useful if an outstanding payment plan line amount need to be split into two lines having a different expected payment date for instance.

This feature is an advanced feature which needs to be unhidden as described in the invoice's payment plan article of the User Guide.
