thank you for your answer but I do all these steps but same problem the module does not appear


After unzipping the file did you copy it in the addons folder?

These are the steps you should follow -

> Unzip the file

> Copy the folder in the odoo addons folder

> Restart the odoo server

> Log in to odoo and activate developer mode. Then go to apps and click on update app list > app

> Then from apps install the app.
