In v8, you don't need to install it or configure in the settings.  It is already there.  There is a tab on the product (template) form which directs you to the variants.

You don't need the module, variants are all over the place. But maybe you need to activate it in the settings. Unfortunately the excellent presentation from the OpenDays about product variants doesn't seem to be present on SlideShare yet.

The new functionality (v8 and master) is really very simple.  I believe the sales module installs everything you need.

  1. Create Attributes:  Sales -> Product Categories & Attributes -> Attributes
  2. Creat Attribute Values: Sales -> Product Categories & Attributes -> Attribute Values
  3. Add Attributes and choose applicable Product Attribute Values: Sales -> Products -> Products -> Variants Tab

When you add the attributes to the product template, the product variants are created automatically.

WARNING: Edit the Internal Reference field on the product variant form, not on the product template form.  That field should be removed from the product template form when variants exist.  I expect some one will identify this as a bug, and fix it.

I am having exactly this problem, I can't change the internal reference field on the product variant form because it has dissapear. Did you find a way to solve this issue?

Hector, You describe a different problem. The problem I am describing causes inconsistent results when setting Internal Reference from the product template form. You may want to start a new question.

Enabling check on Support multiple variants per products, in Settings -> Sales, you can find a new menu item on SAles -> Products -> Products Variant, but no multiple varian possbilities, on trunk version.

Any update?

Torvald could you sum up how product variants management is different or better in v8? I guess you were there at the presentation.

we are trying to implement openerp for our fashion store but so far variant management is just a big dissappointment. (try to use stable v7 version)
