articles and product

on 3/10/15, 3:19 PM 441 views


1.) I was wondering what the best way of managing articles/products is?

So far i only found sales and warehouse. But i simply want to:

  • add/edit/delete a product
  • sell a product

I dont want to track or order a product or do anything alike.

I guess "sales" is the way i want to go. But how can i import my article list with all its custom attributes (such as diffrent product language descriptions, etc..)


Thanks a lot,

Yes, you can sell products even without installing or using the purchase modules.

If you want to "enable" importing products. make sure your account has technical features box ticked (in the settings - user menu). And also be sure you have the option enabled: "Allow users to import data from CSV files" in the "General Settings"

In my opinion,  its best to fill in one product with all the information you want, then export that product. you will then have a kind of framework where you can put all the other products in, before you upload the complete file

If you find this information helpfull, then please give me an thumbs up!

Thanks Martin. Where exactly can i then create a sample product with all my attributes? Can you please point me to the correct menu/screen?

Odoo is a very comprehensive business software suite covering the complete value chain of an enterprise. Before you start, you should invest at least some time to read some manuals and tutorials for the basics. See https://doc.odoo.com/contents/#contents-link for example.

A list of available documentation can be found here: https://www.odoo.com/forum/help-1/question/what-documentation-is-available-for-odoo-60312

And products can be managed under "Sales/Products"
