Well Houssine

again you verify that there IS a phone home in Odoo which really worries Customers in Europe especially. Could you please let us know how to disable ALL Odoo phone home functionality entirely. This would be really helpful!

Thanks a lot in advance.

Concerning Google don't worry to much as many many customers are actually using Google and need that functionality even they worry a lot about what Odoo does with their data. They simply trust the Giant Company Google much more than the small Odoo. Additional you need to make differences between customers which live inside the EU/especially in Germany with their strict privacy laws and outside.

Companies which need 100% privacy won't use the Enterprise Edition at all, as they don't like the subscription part and also the possible proprietary parts which they can't control anymore and of course if they want to stop they might loose their data forever if they can't convert all back to the community Edition. Beside that many are worried about the online version either. Not because you can't extend it easily with the needed functionality for a certain company, but more because of privacy issues of an "Open Source Product" and that here on the mailinglist also others reported that their customers had been contacted by Odoo etc., even they have nothing to do with Odoo at all.

Let's start making Odoo community edition clean from all the sniffing and branding stuff and than think about what to do with Google ;-)

Are you aware of what Google do with your data? Is something else than the phone home of Odoo and by far ;)

So best to avoid Google when it's possible and having a direct synchro with Odoo is better than a hook.

Hi Clovis

Why don't you set the hook here: "Allow the users to synchronize their calendar with Google Calendar"
so you can synchronize the Odoo calendar with a Google Calendar

You can find it under Settings - General Settings - Google Integration - Google Calendar
