Odoo is the world's easiest all-in-one management software. It includes hundreds of business apps:
CRM | e-Commerce | Accounting | Inventory | PoS | Project management | MRP | etc.
I am trying to manage a small project with the projetc management module. I want to enter decription, sequence and expected duration for each task then let the system calculate the earliest finish date.
I read the documentation here where it seems possible to do so. However in my oDoo account there is no field to specify "Planned Hour(s)" as mentioned in the documentation. I only see "sequence", "Starting Date" and "Ending Date" but I don't want to have to change all of those manually every time a task changes obviously.
Am I missing a module maybe?
As far as I can see it is not possible to enter the duration of a task. You have to enter start and end date.
A duration field with 'compute' and 'inverse' would be nice, but still needs to be filled manually.
To get the starting date automatically you will most likely need an on_change method on the sequence field.
But imagine this scenario:
- You change the sequence
- The earliest possible start date will be calculated
- The earliest end date will be calculated with respect to the duration
So far, so fine. But now you have to call a function to recalculate all dates for all subsequent tasks.
This can be done, but might take quite some effort to be done well.
