Advanced Menu Management v.16

The tool to efficiently hide and show menus for Odoo users, companies, and security groups


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


This app lets hide any Odoo menu or submenu for specific users and companies, or, vice versa, to show that for definite users, companies, or access groups.

Access settings for the Odoo menu hierarchy

Innovative hierarchical menus view

Comfortably manage access to Odoo menus in the special interface (Settings > Menu Management). Menus are grouped in the tree with an instant overview of all visibility rules and one-click access to update access settings. All options are provided with useful help hints

Hide entries globally

If any menu or submenu is not of use to your business, hide that in a single click. None of the users will be able to access such an entry. Recover visibility for that at any moment

Hide/show menus company-wise

Specify companies for which a specific menu item should become invisible. Then, a user will see that entry only in case he/she selects another company in the multi-company regime switcher.
Vice versa, define companies for which this menu should be shown. For others, it would be hidden

Hide/show menus user-wise

For any menu/submenu, specify Odoo users to whom a menu should be hidden. Then, such users will not see that entry.
Alternatively, define users who may access a particular menu item. For others, this menu would become invisible

Let users hide menus for themselves

Grant the access right 'Other > Hide Menus Through Preferences' for any user. Such a user would be able to hide any menus for him/herself right through the Odoo preferences

Restrict menus access by user groups

Define user groups that exclusively see a specific menu/submenu. This restriction is cumulated with the Odoo standard menu 'Access rights'. However, in comparison to the latter, the field 'Show only for groups' will never be cleared after the modules' updates.

Frequently Asked Questions about Advanced Menu Management Odoo v.16

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

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 project

3. Then, go to 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, 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 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.
