Odoo has always been considered a complete package of ERP solutions. It is constantly switching to a newer version each year. An event was held in October 2020 by the name of Odoo Experience, after which Odoo 14 version was released. It has an extensive list of new features such as chart snippet, countdown snippet, step snippet, product catalog snippet, auto pop snippet, etc. This version is considered to be the most intelligent version yet.
New Website Builder
The Odoo 14 multi company has made massive changes to the website builder this year. The best solutions have been devised for every block and screen. The builder is now more intuitive with greater options, more customization, widgets, and blocks. This helps users design outstanding pages. Odoo 14 uses the python version 3.8, resulting in better and faster results.
The revamped blog interface has made it much easier for users to understand. New options have been introduced to make your writings unique. In order to improve the SEO score of the blogs, the Promote feature has been improved. This makes it possible to customize the URLs and share them across the internet.
A connection has been added to the Google Search Console so everyone can optimize their website so that it has the best position in the search engine.
Business Intelligence Tool
Odoo 14 has turned every business owner’s dream into a reality. The business intelligence tool allows users to create fantastic and complete reports of revenues and sales teams’ commissions. Users can now apply filters and still have their reports’ data up to the minute. When any new lead is won or new sales are closed, they will automatically be added to the report.
Users just have to refresh their page and start upskilling their business intelligence practices. To keep in touch with the Odoo Style, this feature is fully integrated with all Odoo Apps.
Data Cleaning App
A data cleaning app is available now. This app will help you detect and fix/remove incorrect, duplicate, or incomplete data. The Odoo Data Cleaning App introduces field cleaning and deduplication strategies.
Once users set up their cleaning and deduplication rules, the magic begins. Odoo 14 will suggest all the changes and merges that users can process to have a database empty of useless or outdated data. This saves the time that was previously lost on verifying all the contacts’ phone numbers.
Improved Menus for Inventory and MRP
Odoo version 14 has improved the inventory and MRP system in order to provide a better and hassle-free user experience. The following are the components that have been amplified.
Users had demanded an improvement in the visual aspect of Odoo’s MRP and Inventory apps. Odoo responded and did exactly that. Many menus have been added or moved to a more suitable position. This offers a better vision for all the process’s actions.
Bill of Materials
The routing information is now included in the bill of materials. This has decreased the number of pages that have to be loaded in order to access the operation needed to proceed. The same can be applied to Batch Transfers. Users can view the detailed operations for each transfer without having to click on it.
The product availability has received a visual improvement which shows if a product is available or not. When users click on the “availability” option, they can access the forecasted report of each product used in the MO.
Transfer Status and Schedule Dates
Changes have been made to the transfer statuses and scheduled dates. To make the reading clearer and catch workers’ attention, both have been displayed in colors. Late transfers are shown in red so that everyone knows it must be done first.
Changes have been made to manufacturing orders. Landed costs can now be applied to MOs. The link between parent and child MOs can be shown. The scope of flexible consumption has been increased. This updates MOs and consuming components that were not a part of the initial BOM.
Mobile Point of Sale
There has been a growing demand for mobile interfaces for PoS. Odoo’s point of sale is now 100% mobile-friendly. This improvement has come with the asked possibility of modifying a PoS configuration while a session is open. Many other upgrades have also been made. The product configurator is now available in PoS. Cash rounding can be set on a PoS. A single transfer is created when closing a session. The payment interface has been made clearer when handling several methods.
Because of COVID-19, the event market has evolved and reinvented itself. The new norm is Online Events. Odoo Events has the latest features and is the ultimate solution to manage events of all kinds; from talks to exhibitors and attendees.
Odoo 14 can be used to create live tracks and broadcast them via YpuTube, with the new Odoo integration.
The app also allows users to assess the attendees of the event after the talk by creating competitions and quizzes. The best answers can be displayed on a leaderboard.
Odoo 14 Studio
Massive changes have been made to the Odoo 14 studio. The drag and drop feature has been introduced for the convenience of users. Using this feature, fields can be repositioned to wherever a user wants. The Odoo 14 Studio has aimed at cutting down implementation costs and time by spending less time and resources on heavy development.
Odoo 14 has made many fixes to previous versions. New features have also been added to aid the new circumstances revolving around the release, COVID-19. Odoo version 14 has come with reworked Inventory and Manufacturing modules that are focused on the availability dates of products and supplies.
