Business Apps | Odoo's Features to Help You Get Things Done Faster!

Releasing new features and enriching the existing product is an essential element in the growth of a business software such as Odoo. For every new release, we are driven by one single purpose: helping our users to become better at their job and to accomplish more with Odoo. Once again this year, we are convinced that we have reached the target.

Business Apps | Odoo's Features to Help You Get Things Done Faster!

Odoo Project: Analyze Project and Employees Profitability


Odoo is a great tool for service companies because of its comprehensive integration between apps that cover each stage of the usual workflow:

1 - Odoo Sales to increase customer satisfaction

2 - Odoo Project to deliver your services

3 - Odoo Timesheet to control the time spent on projects

4 - Odoo Helpdesk to manage customer support


With Odoo 11, we have added one extra element to this rich list of services: the ability to analyze the profitability of your employees and projects at a glance in a convenient report. 

Based on your invoicing methods, you will get attached to each project a detailed analysis of the costs and revenues of all your fixed and billable products as well as the number of your non-billable tasks.

    • Switch between apps: customize several apps without leaving the Studio app
    • Edit list and form views for One2Many and Many2Many fields
    • Generate Gantt views from your custom app
    • Drag & drop fields in your view
    • Customize your app with more related fields

From a functional point of view, the major improvements include:

A better user experience thanks to additional features as well as cleaner menus and improved reports

Better flexibility & robustness thanks to the ability to update any transaction (Inventory) and consumed/produced items (MRP)
