Configuration and Installation Tips for Flexible Timetables and Shifts Odoo v.16
Contexts (reasons) for shifts and attendances
The app allows to configure an unlimited number of working contexts on the Odoo HR configuration page.
One of those contexts should be set as default. Then, it would be entered as the first choice for planned shifts and attendances.
When a user plans shifts, he/she would be asked to introduce a context.
It is possible to turn on context selection also when a user checks in Odoo. Otherwise, default context would be entered to attendances.
Timetable combines shifts and attendances by contexts. In case you have rarely used contexts, mark those as 'Do not show if empty' to avoid too many lines.
Notifications to plan shifts
Reminders to create timetables are sent for the next week. Configure days of the previous week when to notify employees on the configuration page.
Only employees with the flagged setting "Timetable Notifications" would receive reminders.
To change the reminder email, go to the Odoo technical settings > Email > Templates. Find there 'Timetable for the next week'. You are welcome to introduce any changes to subject or body and to update translations.
Change time of the reminder through the Odoo technical settings > Automation > Scheduled jobs > 'Notify employees to plan working time for the next week'.
Notifications of being late
Reminders of being late is sent if a user at this particular moment has a planned shift, but he/she has not checked in.
Only employees with the flagged setting "Being Late Notifications" would receive reminders.
To change the reminder email, go to the Odoo technical settings > Email > Templates. Find there 'Timetable: you are late'. You are welcome to introduce any changes to subject or body and to update translations.
Set up frequency of the reminder through the Odoo technical settings > Automation > Scheduled jobs > 'Notify employees of being late'. By default check is done once an hour.
Hours to plan (contract hours)
How many hours should be planned for a week is defined per each user individually. Define contract hours on an employee form.
Frequently Asked Questions about Flexible Timetables and Shifts Odoo v.16
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 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.
Unzip source code of purchased tools in one of your Odoo add-ons directory
Re-start the Odoo server
Turn on the developer mode (technical settings)
Update the apps' list (the apps' menu)
Find the app and push the button 'Install'
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.
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.
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.
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.
