Re: Community modules in Odoo online

Hello Tristan,

You can not install a community module on Odoo Online.

There are several reasons for this, but the main ones are:
- stability of the system: we want Odoo online to be super stable and
  bugs are fixed within a few hours. All official modules follow a
  strict stable policy to guarantee that and community modules do not
  have such a constraint.
- evolution: we upgrade every two months to bring new features to
  online customers which would be impossible with community modules.
- costs: 80% of the instances of Odoo online are free and for paying
  ones, the average revenue per customer is 3.5k€ per year. At that
  price, it's impossible to maintain, evolve and upgrade community

Note that we have an offer on Odoo online that includes unlimited
customizations (100€/month). With this service, it's very rare that we
don't succeed to fit the needs of small customers ( Thanks Eva.
