I installed several default apps using the admin username. On creating a new user and giving him administrator settings, I discovered that on the menu only the Sales, Messaging and Human Resources apps are showing. How do I configure other apps, like purchasing, to appear for this user ?

You have to go into the user's profile and enable each thing you want to user to be able to view.

As administrator go to Settings > (click user name) > access rights tab > edit at the top > and then check the boxes for the user.

acting on your instruction ASAP

I have tried. the process is so complex and I cannot even understand what I am doing. any online reference for help? I think i will grow to love openerp but for now, this is a big obstacle.

By the way, I want to add: Do i have to install app afresh each time I create a new database?

Each database stands on its own, they do not communicate with eachother. you will have to install each app in each database you want to use.
