Flexible Timetables and Shifts v.11

The tool to plan, share and control shifts in a form of weekly time tables


The tool does not require extra dependencies beside standard Odoo apps.
Current version:

To attract and retain employees modern companies need to be flexible in terms of when and where specialists may work. Under such circumstances the task to manage teams and control time resources becomes difficult. This tool aims to help. It allows and forces users to plan shifts in advance, while managers control timetables and attendances.

Quick shifts planning

Shifts are planned for a week from Monday to Sunday. To prepare a timetable users should merely choose time frames on a calendar. Just a few clicks and everybody know when and where their colleague plans to work.
In case shifts are similar from week to week, rely upon templates. As a template you may use any of your existing timetables. It is up to you whether to duplicate shifts for a week or for the whole year and then to update those.

Employees plan. Managers control

The tool is interrelated with the system of Odoo attendances. HR managers not only know employees' plans, but also control over their fulfilment. Open a timetable and compare totals and how good real shifts correspond to scheduled ones.

The tool for distributed teams

To provide conditions for efficient communication the app let employees know shifts of their peers. Team members understand not only when their colleagues are available but also a context. Is John is today working from home or is he on a business trip? Create your own contexts to always make rational decisions.
By the way, shifts are shown in a current user time zone. So, even if you are abroad there would be no misunderstandings which are so common for geographically distributed teams.


Context of work is as improtant as its timing

Timetable reminders

When a person is really flexible in time and circumstances, he/she faces another challenge – how not to forget to tell about plans. To that end you may configure a special notification to remind employees to prepare a new timetable for a next week. Starting from Thursday and till a user recorded shifts, such a user would receive an email. No chance to forget!
Besides, for certain employees you can also send automatic alarms of being late. Does Ann planed to start at 10am, but has not still checked in? Odoo would forward an alert. All email templates might be updated.

Frequently Asked Questions about Flexible Timetables and Shifts Odoo v.11

The tool is designed to allow users to plan shifts themselves. The person logs in and sets his/her shifts, so other users could see it. To be able to do that, an account is required. Unfortunately, due to security issues, it would be impossible to give a person such an opportunity without having an account.

According to the current Odoo Apps Store policies:

  • every module bought for version 12.0 and prior gives you access to all versions up to 12.0.
  • starting from version 13.0, every module version should be purchased separately.
  • disregarding the version, purchasing a tool grants you a right to all updates and bug fixes within a major version.

Take into account that the faOtools team does not control those policies. For all questions, please contact the Odoo Apps Store representatives directly.

The easiest approach is to use the Odoo store built-in workflow:

1. Open the module's page and click the button Deploy on odoo.sh

2. After that, you will be redirected to the GitHub page. Login to your account and click 'Create a new repo' or use the existing one. Please, make sure, that your repository is private. It is not permitted to publish the apps under the OPL-1 license. If necessary, create a new repo for your Odoo.sh project

3. Then, go to odoo.sh and click on the deploy button, submit the decision in the pop-up window and click 'Continue'. The action will trigger the installation process.

These steps will install the app for your project production branch. If you want to deploy the apps for other branches or update the module, you should undertake the following actions:

1. Upload the source code for the app from the Odoo store

2. Commit the module to a required GitHub repository. Make sure that none of the app folders/files are ignored (included in the .gitignore of your repo). Repositories are automatically created by odoo.sh, which might add by default some crucial items there (e.g. /lib). You should upload all module directories, subdirectories, and files without exceptions

3. Deploy a target branch of the odoo.sh project or wait until it is automatically built if your settings assume that.

  1. Unzip the source code of the purchased tools in one of your Odoo add-ons' directories;

  2. Re-start the Odoo server;

  3. Turn on the developer mode (technical settings);

  4. Update the apps' list (the apps' menu);

  5. Find the app and push the button 'Install';

  6. Follow the guidelines on the app's page if those exist.

Yes, sure. Take into account that Odoo automatically adds all dependencies to a cart. You should exclude previously purchased tools.

A red/orange warning itself does not influence features of the app. Regretfully, sometimes our modules do not pass standard automatic tests, since the latter assumes behavior which is in conflict with our apps goals. For example, we change price calculation, while standard Odoo module tests compare final price to standard algorithm.

So, first of all, please check deployed database features. Does everything work correctly?

If you still assume that warning influences real features, please contact us and forward full installation logs and the full lists of deployed modules (including core and third party ones).

Regretfully, we do not have a technical possibility to provide individual prices.

No, third party apps can not be used on Odoo Online.

Yes, all modules marked in dependencies are absolutely required for a correct work of our tool. Take into account that price marked on the app page already includes all necessary dependencies.  

The price for our modules is set up in euros. The Odoo store converts prices in others currencies according to its internal exchange rate. Thus, the price in US Dollars may change, when exchange rate changes.

Bug reporting

In case you have faced any bugs or inconsistent behavior, do not hesitate to contact us. We guarantee to provide fixes within 60 days after the purchase, while even after this period we are strongly interested to improve our tools.

No phone number or credit card is required to contact us: only a short email sign up which does not take more than 30 seconds.

Please include in your request as many details as possible: screenshots, Odoo server logs, a full description of how to reproduce your problem, and so on. Usually, it takes a few business days to prepare a working plan for an issue (if a bug is confirmed) or provide you with guidelines on what should be done (otherwise).

Public features requests and module ideas (free development)

We are strongly motivated to improve our tools and would be grateful for any sort of feedback. In case your requirements are of public use and might be efficiently implemented, the team would include those in our to-do list.

Such a to-do list is processed on a regular basis and does not assume extra fees. Although we cannot promise deadlines and final design, it might be a good way to get desired features without investments and risks.

No phone number or credit card is required to contact us: only a short email sign up which does not take more than 30 seconds.
