This is an Odoo product management tool aims to improve catalog administration and to simplify implementation of changes. The app introduces the innovative interface to search, to analyze, to select, and to mass edit Odoo product templates.

Documentation: https://faotools.com/docs/4/product-management-interface-27
Product management interface overview

Comfortable navigation

Filter products by hierarchy of categories: select one or a few ones.

Systematize products by attributes: e.g. find both white and metal templates.

Navigate by e-commerce categories

Single view interface

Sort product templates by name, reference, category, type, price.

Apply to standard Odoo search.

Click on image to open a product form; on card - to add it for selection

Efficient multi selection and mass update

Pick products up step by step: the selection is not cleared with a new search or when you opened a record. Proceed mass action(s) for all chosen templates

Configurable list of mass actions

Define which mass operations are available from a predefined list or prepare your own server actions. Just a few clicks to update category, to add attributes values, to withdraw from sales, to change price ...

Customizable kanban view

Add any product template fields for kanban cards for an instant overview.

Secured interface and actions

The interface is restricted for the user group Product Management > Product Manager. A user must also have rights for product management (e.g. sales, warehouse or purchase manager).

A life-changer ... and a massive time saver!

Fantastic app ... Provides a whole new view of your product database, nicely presented in editable kanban view, with the ability to filter and sort in various ways and combinations, I guess depending on the $10 add-ons you buy, and then perform mass updates and product changes, all controlled through a very simple and self-explanatory configuration. I only just installed the app but it immediately highlighted to me that I had some products that had somehow been duplicated - even though I thought I had changed the code to prevent that. But more importantly, from here you can get a nice quick overview of your products, their attributes, pricing, etc. You can easily add and delete fields to the kanban overview. And then you can easily select which records your want to update, amend or export, either individually or using 'select all' and then perform your changes in bulk at the click of a couple of buttons. Possibly you can do all these things in standard Odoo (although I'm not so sure you can) but it would take you ten times as long and involve many more steps - most probably with data export and re-import. This app cuts out all the messing around and makes life quick simple. I feel sure this app is going to make my product management so much quicker and simpler in future ! Highly recommended.

Works nice

I find it quite nice module for product management. After the enhancement of not requiring to click exactly on the checkbox it became convenient and fast to use for standard intended functions. Thanks guys!

Fantastic module

This module earned itself back in the first day, a must have when working with lots of products. A minor issue with product attributes was solved within 12h, great service.

Configurable mass actions for product templates

Mass actions are operations which might be proceeded for a number of product templates in batch. The tool offers multiple default actions, among which you can select required ones.

  • Add / remove attribute value to all found templates
  • Change Odoo product category of all selected items
  • Copy any values from the master product template
  • Archive products in bulk / Restore selected products which have been previously archived
  • Export chosen items (the setting 'Export products' should be turned on)
  • Mass update sales price of Odoo product templates
  • Mass edit product type (consumable, service, storable)
  • Publish or unpublish products in batch
  • Update products to be salable / not salable
  • Update products to be purchasable / not purchasable
  • Add / remove public E-shop categories of selected templates
  • Add / remove products' alternatives
  • Add / remove products' accessories
  • Add/remove optional products (the Sales Product Configurator module should be installed)
  • Assign a new vendor to product templates in bulk and make this supplier the most prioritized
  • Add / remove logistic routes
  • Modify invoice policy ('Ordered quantities', 'Delivered quantities')
  • Duplicate a few product templates simultaneously
  • Add / remove customer taxes
  • Add / remove vendor taxes
  • Subscribe to / unsubscribe from products' discussions
  • Add / remove product templates' followers
  • Update purchase method ('On ordered quantities', 'On received quantities')
  • Update tracking method ('By Unique Serial Number', 'By Lots', 'No Tracking')
  • Change price difference account
  • Change income account of product templates
  • Change expense account of product template
  • Change inventory location
  • Change production location

Beside the list above you can also prepare your own mass actions. Look at the configuration tab.

Take into account that update of high number of product templates (e.g. 1000) might take significant time. In such a case you should increase your Odoo configuration timeouts. Besides, some operations might be impossible in Odoo: for instance, creating of more than 1000 variants for a single template.
Update attributes for selected products
Batch change of products' category
Bulk update of Odoo accessories
Mass update of Odoo product suppliers
Export selected product templates

Batch actions for products templates are based on Odoo server actions. It means that you may add custom mass editing operations. Take into account the following peculiarities:

  • As the model always use 'Product Template'. Otherwise you action would not be displayed in the list of operations
  • In case you want to return a wizard, such a wizard should not have a footer (only standard buttons) and should have an explicitly specified view_id. Look for examples in any module of the Product Management Bundle

Example of custom mass action

Odoo server action for product templates

In the right functional area, click on a product's title to remove it from the list. Remove all products by clicking on the 'Reset' icon on the right side of 'Selected products'.

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.

  1. Unzip source code of purchased tools in one of your Odoo add-ons directory

  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.

thank you for your reply. I will try the demo.

Do you have an import/export module or other tool that avoids the variants from being refreshed when attributes are being added or for changing attribute values for specific variants (without them loosing ther other data)?

Odoo Tools

our module doesn't help to avoid that, while it contradicts the Odoo philosophy and may disrupt the process. 

In the standard Odoo functionality, similar goals can be achieved through the setting 'Variant creation mode' that allows to avoid creating new product variants when attributes are added. 

In case further questions or concerns appear, feel free to contact us in our support portal: https://faotools.com/s/fsjc5q

 when you perform Add / remove attribute value to all found templates: then does the products refresh/loose variant data, like it is happening in the standard implementation or not?

We run v15e. Thank you

Odoo Tools

adding/removing an attribute value through the mass action works actually the same as when you manually add/remove those on a template form. So, yes, variants are refreshed like in a standard Odoo.

You can also check the features in our demo databasel. For that, please leave a request in our support system: https://faotools.com/s/yyy8la
