Hi , trying to create a timesheet for an employe on oe v7, i got an error message telling that i should assign it to a user , This means that with the free version , you can only record timesheet for 3 distinct user or employe !!!!!!!!! , not really usefull, clearly means that you should go for the paid version.

Any other way to proceed ?

An unlimited number of users are supported.

What you are running into is restrictions based on an OPTIONAL SERVICE.

Installing modules as 'Apps' is a new service offered by OpenERP to simplify the user experience.

It leverages an online repository directly integrated into OpenERP and update notification functionality. This service is free for 3 users, and part of the OpenERP Enterprise platform (aka OpenERP Publishers Warranty).

In 2013, this is $49 USD per user per month. For a detailed list of the other benefits of the warranty, visit https://www.openerp.com/pricing

If you don't want this service for more than 3 users, simply install modules by downloading them (make sure the version of the module matches the version of OpenERP), copying them to the addons path of your server, adjust permissions if needed, reboot your server, update the modules list and install them from Settings -> Modules -> Installed Modules menu sequence. You need to remove the filter "installed" in search field in order to see all modules, and can then locate and install any new module that way. Get them from https://launchpad.net/openobject-addons/7.0

Contact OpenERP or an OpenERP Partner in your region for more information. Find details at https://www.openerp.com/partners/directory (the three sales offices for OpenERP are at the very bottom of the page)
