Odoo-with the business makes it simple. The Odoo Experience 2019, Odoo13 was introduced to us, which made it easier for the users. Now its the time for higher expectations on this October 2020. Odoo had showcased the roadmap for the latest version Odoo14, which gives us a snapshot of upcoming Odoo14 features.
Some of the Odoo14 expected features are:
Odoo stands out for its cross-app integration.Enhanced/improved Cross-App Integration will be one of the new features in Odoo14. For example, integrating eCommerce and Rental apps, Documents with any other apps or Email templates with Studio. This can improve efficiency and saves a lot of time for the users.
Quicker Object Creation-
To make it easier for the user while building a new app, a new feature has been added in Odoo14, like Pick Options. It will be having presets of widgets like Dates, Contacts, Tags, etc. This will be a way for the user to just picture which options he wants to use in the new app. For example, if the Date is checked it gives a date range widget. This is a way to showcase what is possible to use for the faster creation of the app.
Customizable Approval Flow-
Another feature coming up with the studio is setting up different approval rules for specific actions. Approval rules are quite specific for a company. So you can set up different rules before an action is done. For example, you can set up different rules before actually posting an accounting entry. Maybe you can have three people checking the post button before the entry is posted.
Computed Fields / Custom Buttons-
To make it more friendly, Odoo14 has a new feature of making computed fields and buttons actually customizable for the users.
Quick widgets all way around the navigation to save a lot of time for the users is a major update showcased in the roadmap of Odoo14 for Accounting.
