I'm lacking the possibility to use/configure product variants in my openerp v7 installation, I tried to figure it out myself but I have to admit i got completely stuck. Looking at other posts I tried to activate technical settings. I see under settings>users>my user>Access Rights but it shows:
Product variant (not supported)
What should I do?
Look at here :
I do use product_variant_multi, it works fine
Not supported means : We (OpenERP SA) havent developped this one, so use it at your own risks
Look at this How-To : https://accounts.openerp.com/forum/Help-1/question/35146
Multi-axial varianted product support for OpenERP
OpenERP is already supporting a product variants at the core level. But without this module, variants are only mono-axial. OpenERP indeed uses the product.template as the model object and the product.variant as the instance variant. Using this module, you can now easily deal with multi-axial variants.
A product.template, now has a set of dimensions (like Color, Size, anything you want). For each dimension, a product.template has a set of dimension values (like Red, Green for the Color dimension). For each dimension, you can accept or not custom dimension values. Dimensions can be shared between products.
Once the product.template is set up, you can use a 'generator' button that will populate the space of the variants. You could also choose to populate only some combinations by hand instead.
Each variant can have an extra price that will be taken into account when computing the base listed price. Yet to be implemented: a price extra per variant dimension value. Finally, this module is better used along with the product_variant_configurator which will help the salesman selecting the appropriate variant in the sale order line using dimension criteria instead of having to crawl the full space of variants. The selection can also be done by name if a proper naming convention is adopted.
Gotchas: Because many OpenERP reports refer only to the product name without taking care of the variant, we decided it's better that each variant has a different name expliciting the variant specifics. So we override the product.template#name field and make it optional while product.product now has a new mandatory name field. This is usualy transparent as OpenERP modules try to get their properties like name from product.product and only from product.template if not found on product.product. But at least you will have been warned.

DId you figure it out?
26 views so far, and I am not surprised there are no answers for you.
It is very sad that OPENERP still does not support product variants, thus neither the POS retail system support variants.
How do you conduct business and keep track of inventory without such a basic feature.
Despite having a great UI and all pretty, this feature is not listed in V7, nor documented very well. I have spoken to many GOLD partners and they say i should use V6. Nuts.
Let me know if you find an answer. Give up and try openbravo.
