Flexible Timetables and Shifts v.8

Let employees manage timetables and control their plans' fulfilment


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

This is the tool to allow employees planing flexible timetables and to efficiently control their attendance.

Employees plan own timetables through Odoo calendar (look at the menu HR > Timetables > Calendar)

Employees observe others' timetables to arrange team work and meetings

Users create timetables based on weekly templates. Mass create for a few weeks is also available

HR managers compare planned and actual timetables (based on hr_attendance data) through the special interface (look at the menu HR > Timetables > Timetables)

Employees are notified by email, if they have not created timetables for a next week (on Friday, Saturday and Sunday)

Employees are notified by email, if they are not at work place (are late or leave a work place too early) once an hour. Include users into the both reminders by flagging 'Time notify' on an employee form

Employees indicate and observe a context of their work time, what may be of importance in case of distant work or business trips

Work time is displayed on calendar according to a current user's time zone, what is essential for geographically distributed teams

Locale required

To start using the app you need to have proper locales on your server to all languages used. For example, en_US.UTF-8 or fr_FR.UTF-8. To install a new locale:

sudo locale-gen fr_FR.UTF-8 sudo update-locale

Then re-launch Odoo

Notifications are configured per each employee

Do not forget to flag "Time notify" (the tab "HR Settings") on an employee form to include him/her into timetable reminders

Frequently Asked Questions about Flexible Timetables and Shifts Odoo v.8

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.
