Odoo is a lean and modular open source ERP developed by the Belgian company Odoo S.A.. It has been optimized and enhanced with the help of a global community for over 20 years and now covers almost all business areas, including sales, purchasing, warehouse management, production, accounting, human resources and much more. What makes Odoo special is that it offers a comprehensive suite of applications that are aligned and can be seamlessly integrated to create a complete ERP system.
We would like to briefly present the most important new features in Odoo 17:
UX and Design
The design has been fundamentally revised and now offers greater clarity and a look and feel that is based on mobile applications.
Odoo’s Progressive Web Apps, PWA, have been equipped with shortcuts so that users can easily switch between applications. For example, dialog boxes can be confirmed anywhere in Odoo with the shortcut CTRL+Enter. In addition, every user can now rearrange their app icons on the dashboard by dragging and dropping them. Odoo’s progressive web app now makes it easier to share content that the user is currently viewing thanks to a button in the user menu.
Data records can be selected quickly using the keyboard and the shift key and the selection can be canceled with a single click. List and Kanban column headings remain visible even when scrolling to improve the readability of the data.
New Features in Odoo 17
Enhanced search function
The enhanced search function has been improved to perform more efficient and powerful searches by selecting records directly from related data instead of relying on slow text searches.
With the new reminder feature in the Signature module, you can keep track of documents that are waiting for your signature.
Simple quote creation and real-time customization
With Odoo 17 you can easily create quotes while visiting a customer – you can select products, adjust quantities and change your sales order together with the customer.
Self-ordering and convenient mobile payment
Improved customer experience through the option of self-ordering via tablets or cell phones. Customers can place orders by scanning a QR code and payments can be processed conveniently.
Easily visualize company hierarchy and structures
Odoo 17 introduces a departmental organization chart that provides an excellent visual representation of your company and employee structure.
Efficient resource booking for company facilities and premises
Manage resources efficiently and allow visitors to book various facilities such as tennis courts, meeting rooms and restaurant tables with just one click.
