With every new version of OpenERP there are always surprising changes visually or functionally. Lets discuss the very cool new features of OpenERP 7.0 and compare with those of 6.1.
OpenERP has made the version 7.0 views very mind blowing just like a real document. The views are more simple and clearer. The earlier versions used be very much with reds and greys whereas 7.1 is more whiter.
The menus are more clearer and you need not to click and click for a particular menuitem as it was earlier, thus, saving loads of time.
There are so many new modules in the new version like social networking, calendar, address book and other useful modules for CRM.
Install Multiple Modules Together:
The new version gives you the flexibility to install multiple modules at once. You can select the modules from the tree and go to More button and select 'Install Immediate Modules'.
Search in a New Way:
Searching here in 7.0 version is more easier, stylish, and combines the advance filters all together in just one box.
No Simplified/Extended Preferences:
Now no need to change the settings for the simplified or extended views.
Configuration Under Settings:
The configuration for most of the modules has gone under one menu and that is Settings. You can configure accounts, taxes, products, locations under just one menu, making the OpenERP look more clearer.
Special Messaging menu:
OpenERP 7.0 provides you a new menu totally dedicated to all your mails, You can create multiple groups and send messages across. All what is going on in the organisation can be seen here whether an invoice is created or a new customer is added.
