But before I enlist those here, let me help you learn more about Odoo!

A Brief Overview of Odoo

Odoo was released as an OpenERP software in February 2005 by Odoo SA. It is a suite of business applications used for ERP, CRM, eCommerce, website, and project management. A decade later, the Odoo Enterprise edition was released to fund the operations of the Odoo Community version seamlessly.

If you compare Odoo Community vs Enterprise, you will see that the latter version comes with some exclusive new additions like accessibility using mobile apps, Odoo Studio customization, Odoo hosting, and unlimited functional support.

Today, Odoo has become a renowned name and is used by companies of all sizes from different industries such as manufacturing, retail, accounting, marketing, healthcare, IT consulting companies, R&D, etc.

The latest release Odoo 16 has been available for use since October 12, 2022. Some of the key highlights of this update include:

  • Elevated user experience with improvement in the command bar, faster backend page loading time, multiple dashboard views, etc.
  • Instant report generation, sales & invoices credit limit alert, OCR-separate setting for invoice creation, and auto-complete feature for forms in the accounting module.

  • Default auto signature option and refuse to sign option in HR modules.
  • Dividing and merging manufacturing orders, tracking the status of the manufacturing order, and more in the MRP module.

While some users loved the new UI adaptations, some found the icons too distractive and colorful. Some even worried if the icons can translate the true meaning of the respective apps. Now, we can only wait to see how Odoo upcoming version will meet user expectations.

II. The search view will be more advanced than ever

One of the greatest additions in Odoo 17 is going to be its advanced search feature. With the help of advanced search, you will be able to find more specific records by applying filters. And not just one filter, but multiple filters with several rules to choose from.

As evident, the search is going to be more powerful than ever. It will surely add to business productivity and improve user experience with options like Filters, Group By, and Favorites.

III. Shortcuts to access Odoo PWA

 

 

Working with Odoo PWA (progressive web apps) is going to get simpler with the introduction of shortcuts in your smartphone. The R&D team of Odoo 17 did explore the shortcut method allowing users to quickly access various significant apps of your Odoo instance.

You can expect to see this amazing feature in Odoo 17. However, we still have to wait till its release notes are introduced to be certain.

IV. Quick selection of records using keyboard

 

 

Selecting/Unselecting records will be effortless with Odoo 17. The new interface will allow you to use keyboard shortcuts to select and Shift key support for multiple selections. You will also have an ‘Unselect all’ button to unselect the selected records.

V. Freeze list and Kanban column headers while scrolling

When you scroll to access more data, the list and column headers weren’t visible, causing a little inconvenience to users. However, by freezing the list and Kanban column headers even when you scroll, you will be able to access the list more effortlessly. The readability is expected to increase.

VI. “New” button in place of “Create”

The “Create” button is revamped as the “New” button. Although this feature was suggested for Odoo 17 only, it was backported to Odoo 16 as well.

VII. Adding Sale order products from catalog view
