I have decided to write a beginners configuration guide for Odoo v8 and I would love your help and input.

You can join the discussion and help create the document with me or just send me suggestions, links etc.

UPDATE: Due to apparent lack of interest, zero meaningful feedback and support of the community... I have decided to write the document as I need each item.  As of right now I am not running my own personal Odoo server.

One additional item that I think would be worthy of inclusion is writing / printing physical checks based on your countries format.

Some people call me a karma whore, I only ask for 10 points if you like my answer and 15 if I happen to get it correct.
