As soon the app is installed, current products' references might be re-calculated

This is an Odoo tool to implement product automatic coding. The app is flexible enough to reflect almost any product reference structure, since it lets you define as many code parts and as complex criteria as you need.

Advanced rules for product references

Define code positions which would satisfy business specifics. Have as many parts as it's needed. Distinguish complex criteria to apply parts for products of specific kinds and not for others

Automatic code generation

The app regularly checks updates of code rules and of products. Product references are automatically changed accordingly without user interactions

Manual product numbering

Mark certain products as 'Manual reference': their codes would not be influenced by the rules and would become editable. Products with pre-defined codes (e.g. created by import) by default have manual references

Based on standard Odoo tools

Product coding is global: rules are equally applied for each company, but you can restrict products in rules by using filters by company.

Codes are calculated in a current user language. Avoid using translated fields for code rules.

The right to define product coding rules belongs only to Odoo administrators.

Odoo product automatic code example

Automatic product references based on rules

Dynamic and static code positions

  • Product references are generated based on code parts. Define as many parts as you need. For example, the first position relates to a category, the second - to a manufacturer, the third - to the attribute 'material', etc.
  • Code positions for certain products might be empty: e.g. for services there is no sense to have a code part of the attribute 'material'
  • Each position has rules to generate a code value which might be static (e.g. '-AL') or dynamic (e.g. first 2 letters of category name). In order a code part is calculated for a product, there should be at least a single rule this product satisfies
  • As dynamic code use any standard or custom field of a product variant or template: char, integer, float, date and date with time, selection, and many2one. In case of many2one field (e.g. a related product category) you should select its linked field (for example, a category name)
  • For dynamic code use not only the whole field value, but also its part. For instance, apply first 2 letters (0-1) of a category name or only month of a manufacture date (5-7). Leave '0' in both start and end to retrieve the whole field value

When product references are updated

  • When a product is created or changed
  • Regularly by the cron job for all products (have a look a the tab 'Configuration', the section 'Scheduled jobs')
  • Manually when you push the button on a product form
  • Manually for all products when you push the button on the configuration page
  • Such complex logic is introduced to avoid slowdowns. The point is that codes rules are advanced and there is no way to define recalculation triggers. Generating codes on fly would result in low performance. That is why to make sure codes are generated, Odoo regularly looks over all products.

Frequently Asked Questions about Product Dynamic Codes Odoo v.15

According to the current Odoo Apps Store policies:

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

Take into account that faOtools team does not control those policies. By 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 would install the app for your project production branch. If you wanted 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 source code of purchased tools in one of your Odoo add-ons directory

  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.

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.  

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).

Odoo demonstration databases (live previews)

For this app we might provide a free personalized demo database.

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

By your request we will prepare an individual live preview database, where you would be able to apply any tests and to check assumptions during 14 days.

Bug reporting

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

No phone number or credit card are 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: screen shots, Odoo server logs, full description of how to re-produce your problem, and so on. Usually it takes a few business days to prepare a working plan by an issue (if a bug is confirmed) or provide you with guidelines what should be done (otherwise).

Public features request 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 into our to-do list.

Such to-do list is processed on a regular basis and does not assume extra fees. Altough 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 are required to contact us: only a short email sign up which does not take more than 30 seconds.

New features and extra Odoo services (individual development)

Each of our apps might be customized and extended to suit your specific requirements.

Our customization team fulfills not only such jobs but it also provides a full range of Odoo services. From simple modifications and consultations to complex enterprise projects. The team has completed over 100 implementations since 2012, and might help with any technical or business needs.
