MuK Preview MS Office

Extendes the Preview Dialog to support MS Office files. Currently the following file extensions are supported:

  • Word (*.doc | *.docx, application/msword)
  • Excel (*.xls | *.xlsx, application/msexcel)
  • PowerPoint (*.ppt | *.pptx, application/mspowerpoint)

Installation

To install this module, you need to:

Download the module and add it to your Odoo addons folder. Afterward, log on to your Odoo server and go to the Apps menu. Trigger the debug mode and update the list by clicking on the "Update Apps List" link. Now install the module by clicking on the install button.

Another way to install this module is via the package management for Python (PyPI).

To install our modules using the package manager make sure odoo-autodiscover is installed correctly. Then open a console and install the module by entering the following command:

pip install --extra-index-url https://nexus.mukit.at/repository/odoo/simple <module>

The module name consists of the Odoo version and the module name, where underscores are replaced by a dash.

Module:

odoo<version>-addon-<module_name>

Example:

sudo -H pip3 install --extra-index-url https://nexus.mukit.at/repository/odoo/simple odoo11-addon-muk-utils

Once the installation has been successfully completed, the app is already in the correct folder. Log on to your Odoo server and go to the Apps menu. Trigger the debug mode and update the list by clicking on the "Update Apps List" link. Now install the module by clicking on the install button.

The biggest advantage of this variant is that you can now also update the app using the "pip" command. To do this, enter the following command in your console:

pip install --upgrade --extra-index-url https://nexus.mukit.at/repository/odoo/simple <module>

When the process is finished, restart your server and update the application in Odoo. The steps are the same as for the installation only the button has changed from "Install" to "Upgrade".

You can also view available Apps directly in our repository and find a more detailed installation guide on our website.

For modules licensed under OPL-1, you will receive access data when you purchase the module. If the modules were not purchased directly from MuK IT please contact our support (support@mukit.at) with a confirmation of purchase to receive the corresponding access data.

Upgrade

To upgrade this module, you need to:

Download the module and add it to your Odoo addons folder. Restart the server and log on to your Odoo server. Select the Apps menu and upgrade the module by clicking on the upgrade button.

If you installed the module using the "pip" command, you can also update the module in the same way. Just type the following command into the console:

pip install --upgrade --extra-index-url https://nexus.mukit.at/repository/odoo/simple <module>

When the process is finished, restart your server and update the application in Odoo, just like you would normally.

Configuration

No additional configuration is needed to use this module.

Usage

Go to a binary that contains a office document and open the preview dialog to view the preview.

To "Install" and Set Path for Windows (unoconv)

To "Install" and Set Path for Windows (unoconv) 1. Add System Variable to Environmental Variable - Name: unoconv Variable Path: C:\unoconv 2. Download the latest version of the unoconv script from https://github.com/dagwieers/unoconv/releases 3. From the downloaded zip file - extract the one file "unoconv" (no file extension). This is the unoconv script - none of the other files in the package are required. 4. Rename the downloaded script to unoconv.py and copy it to a folder C:\unoconv 5. Try and install the module. If it doesn't work, restart Odoo and try to reinstall

Hello Ketan Chauhan, judging by your error message, your unoconv doesn't work properly. Please make sure that this can be done error-free via the console. See the module description or directly on the unoconv page how to install it properly. Please report problems to Github (https://github.com/muk-it/muk_web/issues) in the future, because the Odoo Store does not send a notification for new comments.

FYI, to install this module you need install 2 dependencies as below: pip install cachetools pip install pdfconv restart Odoo then try again. Note, if using python virtualenv, and dependencies still missing, you should create new python env.

We've got a problem with MuK Preview MS Office : Unexpected server response (415). This error is possibly because of "pdfconv". Do we need some extra module for it to work ?
