Odoo is the world's easiest all-in-one management software. It includes hundreds of business apps:
CRM | e-Commerce | Accounting | Inventory | PoS | Project management | MRP | etc.
In the "Access rights" tab of a user, there is a list of "technical features". However, no help is available as far as I can tell describing what these technical feature do. For some of them, the name is self-explanatory (e.g. Multi currency). For others, things are much less clear (e.g. "Manage serial numbers" vs. "Manage logistic serial numbers" or "Analytic accounting" vs. "Analytic accounting for purchases": in both cases does the first imply the second?)
Is there a list describing these technical features and their scope?
The "Technical Features" is a group that you can assign on users to give access to lots of technical information. Once you are in this group, you have more menus in each application (don't forget to reload menus after assigning the group) mostly for configurations. You also have more fields visible on most views.
As an example, on the user view, it shows all fields that are the groups this user can belong to. Most of these hidden groups are configurable through the Settings / ... menu. The tooltips on the checkbox fields in the Settings menus are more explicit about their business impact.
It's not very useful to assign such groups on the user form because it's much easier to configure such options from the Settings / ... menu instead. This will assign groups to all users and set the default groups for new users.
But you can still assign a technical group on a specific user if he should be the only one to benefit from this option. Example of options you find in these groups: "Allow to set a different address for delivey and invoicing on the sale order" or "Allow using different units of measures".
This will not answer you question but it is a quick tip to help.
If you switch to developper mode and look at the name of the setting you will see the setting name.
- If it it starts with module_xxx this will install addon xxx, so you can hace a look in module description.
- If it starts with group_xxx is will attribute group to all user.
- if it starts with default_xxx it will set a default value
It is just a workaround to help. I do not thing there is any way to get more information if the
help of the field is not set in base code...
