Hi, I think I experienced the same issues initially. The thing is, setting up a CRM system is a lot of work.
You need to input a lot of data, company settings, bank information, products, open a financial year etcetera.
And of course, you need to know how to do that in Odoo, and in what order. 

For these things, I would recommend either turning to their helpdesk (Odoo has online training videos available)
or to external sites such as

The learning curve is quite steep, but once you get the hang of it, it's worth your while. But be prepared to
spent quite an amount of time.

Hi all

I'm almost too embarrassed make this request, but I can't for the life of me see how to get started with odoo.

I signed up on the little one line getting started box on the site putting in a subdomain as requested, and registered and can log in just fine to my account.

The problem is, once I get in there, there's no menu item that mentions anything like getting set up, getting started, etc.

There's a Home menu item, on which page there's a box that says Start a new company. Great I thought, but when I click it, it goes straight back to the main site waiting for me to enter the subdomain again. I tried doing that and of course it told me that it's already registered and to sign in (which I already am). 

Then there's a Billing and Support menu item that appears to open some sort of webmail.

And then there's a Website menu item which sends me straight back to the website.

Am I the most stupid person ever to have signed up or what?

Thanks for any pointers someone can give.

Yours in embarrassment
