Odoo, a popular open-source business software package, has been the choice of many companies around the world. With the release of Odoo 16, the platform has taken project and task management to new heights. In this article, our Project Manager in the company Netframe explores the exciting features and capabilities that Odoo 16 offers in project and task management.
The Odoo 16 helps to manage multiple projects. All the main functions that guarantee accurate tracking and organization of projects are contained in this module.

The following depicts some benefits of using the Odoo 16 project module

  • With Odoo's project management module, project managers can set up, organize, and monitor projects from start to finish, promoting teamwork and maximizing the use of resources. 
  • Project managers can create projects, assign tasks, set deadlines, and develop task dependencies with Odoo, providing a clear path for project progress.
  • Effective distribution of tasks among team members is made possible by task management in Odoo, which also promotes accountability and transparency in task execution.
  • Odoo's Kanban board view gives tasks a visual representation so they can be tracked individually or as a whole. Users can assign tasks to specific people, monitor their progress, and handle task-related documents and conversations all in one place.
  • Project managers can track resource usage with time tracking and resource management tools in Odoo, ensuring efficient resource allocation and prompt completion of work.
  • Odoo's collaboration capabilities, such as real-time messaging and activity feeds, promote seamless teamwork by facilitating communication and collaboration between team members.
  • Odoo's reporting and analytics features give stakeholders access to information about project performance, enabling data-driven decision-making and continuous improvement.

The project overview gives you a look at the projects the company is working on, and a lot of information can be found in the Kanban view itself. It contains information about the client, the project period, the responsible employee, the number of tasks, the hours spent on the timesheet, the milestones achieved, and the status of the project, whether it is in progress, not in progress, at risk, etc.

You can create a new project from the dashboard by clicking on the ‘New’ button, and a window appear to add up details, including the project name. Make it a billable project by marking ‘Billable’, and if the project requires planning of shift to resources can enable ‘Planning’ and  ‘Timesheet’ to record employee spent hours on project or task.

Hitting on the CREATE PROJECT creates a project. Once the project is created, all features required for the project can be enabled from the project configuration.
