Universal website bookings

  • Making a reservation through the Odoo portal/website represents the multi-step checkout process
  • It starts with selecting a resource type. For example, "Beauty salon" or "Class A Cars". The step might be missed if there is a single published resource type for a current website
  • Then, a client navigates over resources of the chosen type to pick one, a few, or applies any (all). For example, "Hair Dresser John Brown" or "Tesla 1234". The step would be missed if there is a single published resource, or when the chosen resource type assumes automatic allocation
  • Afterward, a client chooses the desired service related to the selected resources. For example, "Makeup" or "Car Rent Class A". Users would not be forced to choose a service if there is a single published on this website for this resource
  • Now a client is shown available time slots. The interface allows adopting time frames of search, changing the time zone, and choosing duration (for the services with manual duration). Each action results in slots recalculation. Website visitors might be optionally allowed to book a few time slots for a chosen service (the multi-scheduling option)
  • The slots selection is required and can be not missed. As soon as pre-reservation is done, nobody else can book the same time period. Users have limited time to make confirmation after which pre-reservation would be canceled (the exact time is configurable)
  • As the time slot is pre-reserved, optionally force the public (not logged-in users) to sign in, only offer to do so, or just let them enter their details
  • Then, a client should introduce his/her contact details, a set of which might be changed per website. By default, the required ones are name and email. Portal (already registered) users would have those fields auto-populated. Optionally place here a checkbox to agree with the terms and conditions
  • Optionally ask clients to confirm email or mobile number. If the confirmation option is turned on, users would be obliged to insert received codes. In case a correct code is not introduced in time (the timer is set up on the configuration page), appointments would be canceled. If you selected SMS confirmation (depends on Odoo SMS IAP) but your balance is not sufficient, a confirmation code would be forwarded by email
  • As soon as all steps are done, a client receives a confirmation email and is redirected to the success page/new appointments(s) page. For not yet registered users, the app offers to enter the password for the Odoo portal
  • During the whole process, a client sees the progress bar (if you have not purposefully turned it off). The progress bar lets safely return to any previous step and back.

Frequently Asked Questions about Universal Appointments: Portal and Website Odoo v.15

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.

Odoo demonstration databases (live previews)

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

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.

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