RE: Community modules in Odoo onlineby
This isn’t possible.
Eva was discussing the possibility of importing a ‘data model’ which is a definition of an object/class/model – but this would be without any code – it is just a new ‘thing’ with fields.

Subject: Re: Community modules in Odoo online
I totally understand the logic behind not supporting an instance with community modules, I even understand the logic behind not even allowing community modules, where I’m lost is on how/where in an Odoo Online instance does one go to install a community module? Under Settings > Modules, I only see the standard OpenERP SA built modules. All other searches come up blank.

As far as I know, you can import data modules into the SAAS. At least, this was the claim of Odoo.
The reason why they cannot support a system containing community modules is really clear. They would need to analyse every single community module first, run all the tests on them to make sure it is absolutely compatible with all the standard modules and these are very high costs with >3000 modules of all size and quality.
Most SAAS providers would allow you to add community modules, but they will have the restriction of you paying for the testing and the correction of the community module as well.
Think about using OCA fully tested modules, as they go through a higher quality control than many other available modules.

Thanks for the reply Gunnar.
I do mean the official saas version. The version hosted by Odoo that you sign up for on their website and pay Odoo to use.
I was told by an Odoo representative that you could install and use community modules, but doing so would negate any support provided by Odoo, however I have not found any evidence to support this claim. I was wondering if anyone knew something that I was missing.
