OpenERP 7 : as easy as 10 clicks!

This one here must be our proudest achievement for the v7.0.! We have been working on usability for 6.0. and 6.1., but we needed to step it up a notch. We are strong believers that using an ERP should not be a challenge. 

On the contrary, it should be an asset and utility for your business. That’s why, with v7.0. you can now go through a flow in about 10 clicks, with no documentation needed. The flows are set up in such a way that you are simply guided through the actions you have to take.

In this respect, we have fixed the main problems that were making the flows slightly confusing. First of all, when following a flow, the buttons pose a real problem as they were many, spread out and at times the user was not sure of what to do next. So, we have simplified most of the views to correct that.

Now, throughout the navigation, the buttons are always visible in the same place, so that the user doesn’t need to search for them. We have also made the state bar more visible, so that the user can visualize at which stage he’s at, whenever he proceeds.

Finally, the breadcrumbs make it possible to easily go back to the previous pages. This one is an exciting features and works even better than a Back button, since you can actually choose on which form you want to return.


Let’s look at an example of a sales flow. As soon as you Install the Sales module, you are asked to Configure your Chart of accounts.
Then, you are indicated to create your first customer.




Next, you can proceed with creating your first quotation, directly from the 
customer you have just created. You will land on a view which point you to the Button Create.





Within the quotation, you can create the product, without accessing other form views.







Make sure you Confirm your quotation, before moving on.


At this point, you can Create, Confirm and Validate your invoice in just a few simple clicks.



Further, you have the option to Print or Email your Invoice. The flow ends with you delivering the order, registering the payment and making the transfer. You were in Invoicing ? Not a problem, go back in your sales with the breadcrumbs on top and process the delivery order from there.

The layout of the flow is straight-forward and intuitive to help you save time and proceed in the fastest way that makes the most sense. Each step of the flow is guided with information and focused action buttons to show you what to do next. Therefore, you have red buttons to direct you to the proceeding step.

We believe we made it really easy for the user, so that he mainly has to focus on the information he needs to input rather than trying to figure out what he needs to do next. With OpenERP 7.0, new users should be productive in no time: they simply pick an application to start with, and let the system guide them throughout the business flows.

Linux Operating System Free Full Download All Versions

Courtesy :- BurningX







Ubuntu Linux is a complete desktop Linux operating system, freely available with both community and professional support. The Ubuntu community is built on the ideas enshrined in the Ubuntu Manifesto: that software should be available free of charge, that software tools should be usable by people in their local language and despite any disabilities, and that people should have the freedom to customize and alter their software in whatever way they see fit. "Ubuntu" is an ancient African word, meaning "humanity to others". The Ubuntu Linux Distribution brings the spirit of Ubuntu to the software world.




Mandriva Linux (formerly Mandrake linux), is a user-friendly distribution with enormous community support. It is easy to install and the hardware detection features and Disk Partitioning programs are often considered the best in the industry. Mandriva Linux offers all the power of Linux for the beginner in an easy-to-use and pleasant environment. Join those who are discovering Linux as a complete replacement for their previous operating system.

http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-IhLxqm8b0U4/TctWg6TtuuI/AAAAAAAAAIs/8z7Cagq-r1E/s1600/mandriva.jpg



Linux for Advanced User
For the advanced user there are a number of sophisticated distributions which work well on the desktop and as a server. Here our the Hungry Pengiun's choices...



Fedora Mention the word "Linux" and many people will think of the name Red Hat. It is probably the best-known Linux company in the world. In 2003, Red Hat Linux 9 became the last version in the Red Hat Linux product line, however it was was replaced by Fedora a Red Hat sponsored distribution of Linux. Much what goes into Fedora makes its way into Red Hat's enterprise Linux products.

                                 

SUSE Linux is a distribution with a desktop focus. It is easy to use and there is a professional attention to detail. Recently SUSE (now a Novell company) followed Red Hat in making its distribution more community focused. The openSUSE project is a community program sponsored by Novell (http://www.novell.com). Promoting the use of Linux everywhere, openSUSE.org provides free, easy access to the world's most usable Linux distribution, SUSE Linux. The openSUSE project gives Linux developers and enthusiasts everything they need to get started with Linux.

Live linux 

For those who wish to try Linux without having to install it on their hard drive, there exists a number of LIVE CD distributions. They boot directly from the CD and don't install anything on the hard disk. Boot up time is of course slower than with a hard disk, but it is a great way to experiment with Linux. 
Knoppix is a bootable Linux CD with great automatic hardware detection (including support for many graphics cards, sound cards, SCSI and USB devices) Knoppix can be used as a Linux demo, educational CD or as a rescue system. It has on-the-fly decompression, which means that the CD can have up to 2 GB of executable software installed on it.

Click Here : - http://knoppix.net/get.php


MEPIS  Linux is a user-friendly operating system based on Debian Stable that "just works". It runs from your CD/DVD or USB drive so you can use it on your Windows or Mac machines without installing.
MEPIS comes with much of the software most users need, and hundreds of additional open-source programs are just a click away


Click Here : - http://www.mepis.org/mirrors

MINI

Along with the full blown Live CDs like Knoppix and MEPIS there is a collection of mini distirbutions who truly believe that small is beautful. 
Damn Small Linux, a.k.a. DSL is a very versatile 50MB mini desktop oriented Linux distribution. Despite its minuscule size it strives to have a functional and easy to use desktop. DSL include XMMS (for mp3), an FTP client, a web browser, a spreadsheet, an email client, a word-processor and much more. If you like Damn Small Linux you can install it on your hard drive. Because all the applications are small and light it makes a very good choice for older hardware.

 http://www.damnsmalllinux.org/images/dsl-4.2.x.jpg


Feather Linux is a Linux distribution which runs completely off a CD or a USB pendrive and takes up under 115Mb of space. It is a Knoppix remaster (based on Debian), and tries to include software which most people would use every day on their desktop. 
 http://linux-live-cd.org/IMG/png/menu_buro_feather-a-decouper.png


SERVER

CentOS is an Enterprise-class Linux Distribution derived from sources freely provided to the public by Red Hat, in other words CentOS is a clone of RHEL. However CentOS conforms fully with the Red Hat's Redistribution policy and aims to be 100% binary compatible. CentOS is free.

http://linuxlibrary.org/wp-content/uploads/2011/04/centos-5-6-3.jpg


Click Here : - http://www.centos.org/


Another great server version of Linux is Ubantu Server. Ubuntu Server includes what is needed to provide a service, nothing more. This lean, efficient architecture sees more services delivered with less computing power and less resources required. Ubuntu Server is provided free of licensing and subscription fees. The Ubuntu security team provides vital maintenance and security updates for free.

MassEditing Feature in OpenERP by Serpent Consulting Services!

Hello OpenERP Community,

As it is said by someone,’Never Leave a chance to Thank anyone’. Let SerpentCS take a privilege to thank the OpenERP community for keeping the world of OpenSource Alive.

Here we represent one of the most useful features in ERPs, called Mass Editing. The aim is simply to edit/remove some values of more than one records at the same time, on the fly.

By the time we are typing this, hopefully http://apps.openerp.com should have the module called ‘mass_editing’ as we name it. The complete video is available to see at Youtube.

Few Screens:

1. Mass Editing Menu Location
SerpentCS OpenERP

2. Mass Editing Config


3. Mass Editing Action


4. Mass Editing Screen



The module is 6.0 compatible too as we believe in same treatment to everyone. I have not tested with 5.0 personally, but I am sure of this module to work on 5.0 too. Needless to say, this is 6.1+ compatible originally.

You might download the code from:
1. Extra Addons 6.0
2. Extra Addons Trunk(as on date, its trunk)
3. Community Addons

Any feedback/suggestion/queries are welcomed at contact@serpentcs.com

Many Thanks,

Serpent Consulting Services.

My Journey of Python, OpenSource, OpenERP moves onto the 6th year : Jay Vora

The clock ticks and moves on, doesn't really stop atleast for a second! Why would it ? I know very well that it does not tick only for me, so sticks on ticking on and just while you reading this, it had already moved few more seconds.

Naturally, when some one becomes a little idle or tired or goes to sleep, one becomes a little nostalgic, refreshes the day spent and remembers whether its anyone's birthday today or something special related to the current date.

And yes, here it comes my turn and its September 10, 2012 and it shows that I have completed 5 years. OF??? yes, 10 sep 2007 is the date ever since I came to know about OpenSource, Python and OpenERP. It is to mention that it too was a Monday. I am quickly moved to my laptop now and sharing my old memories and having a pleasure to thanks to the builders of the career so far. Well yes, NEVER LEAVE A CHANCE TO THANK ANYONE. I am here to thank to the names you will read below.

By the time I write this, I am into the old times 5 years back while I was just a fresher and working for Anish Information Technology,working on Microsoft Technologies (now acquired by Thomson Reuters). On one usual day or better to say as a part of routine I went for a usual meet to my close friend Akash Oza(It does not happen now a days more often as we are busy in our married lives, he is legally married and I am to Serpent Consulting Services). While having a usual talk, I happen to discuss with his elder brother Navrang Oza, the owner of IntellectSeed Technologies about his current job and I was impressed by the discussion in which he talked about a new concept, new technology and about new opening into the firm TinyERP India Pvt. Ltd. run under the Belgian label led by Mantavya Gajjar.

I kept in my mind that doesn't matter whatever happens, I am going to take this new challenge. Interesting to share that I had my current salary X and my new salary if I take the job was gonna be 20% less, yes you read it right, TWENTY % less !!! Which dumb and blind fresher will take this decision, and I was Qualified enough to label these tags and took the decision for the sacrifice of Money to get a new challenge to know about.

I decided and met once again to Navrang and Dharmesh Rathod, the Managing Director of Axelor India.  I knew few more things about python,future and about the job. Then with the grace of Luck, Navrang introduced me to Mantavya who was/is the director of TinyERP India Pvt. Ltd. He powered me with the opportunities and gave a glimpse of the environment to work on and the future. I then honestly asked them about the background I would need to have to be qualified for the job, they helped me understand the concepts of MVC, OOPs being used in the technology and boosted me for the next coming thing!

I sent the resume and was given a date for the interview. I was interviewed by Hardik Joshi, the Manager and Husen Daudi, the Support Leader. ( Later on Husen sir told me that I was neither selected nor rejected by any of the two interviewers, was just put in pending state. Was later recommended by the names mentioned above and now into the team... Mixed feelings )

I was selected and joined the team of TinyERP Technical architects from 10 sep 2007 (really they were/are/will be) which includes Miss Dhara Shah, Mr. Dhaval Patel, Mr. Husen Daudi, Mr Pritesh Modi, Mr. Hardik Joshi, Mrs. Kundan Patel,Mr. Mustufa Rangwala, Mr. Harshad Modi, Mr. Harsh Kohli and Mr. Ashishsingh Bhatia. I got the offer letter from Mrs. Anar Patel, one of the very confident, strong and powerful ladies I've ever met.

DO What you LOVE and LOVE what you DO. Within the span of 15 days I learnt Technical basics and started working on the OpenSource ERP Called TinyERP (is now called OpenERP). I am still learning and working on it. Learning always has to be a continuous process. If you don't be a student, you cannot make a progress!


Thanks to everyone including the personnels mentioned who have come aroud my journey and yes its ON! You are the builders and all credits go to you!

You bless yourself,

Thanks,
Jay Vora.

OpenERP : Parent_left and parent_right explained!

Guys,

By the time we are typing this down(1 AM crossing soon), Husen and Jay have been delivering Remote Training of the month and this has given us an idea to share a very nice topic which has been a ‘What’ for many.

It has been a busy set of months as have been busy managing Trainings. It is to share that we just finished July 2012 and preparing for the overwhelming response for Aug 2012 OpenERP Training in India.

I understand you might have a hard time understanding what is all about parent_left and parent_right!

Had you seen the code for account.account and product.category, you would better know what it looks like and what’s the importance! Basically, they have been added for faster execution of search call when you have lots of records on these models. In short, you can count them the agents of binary search!

The parent_left and parent_right are 2 special fields that are related to the parent_id field. The purpose of those fields is to make queries within the hierarchy execute efficiently: with parent_left and parent_right, you can retrieve all the descendants of a node without making recursive queries.

Consider two nodes A and B in the hierarchy. A and B can be partner categories, for instance. Their integer fields parent_left and parent_right are such that:
B is a descendant of A in the hierarchy (defined by parent_id)
if and only if

 A.parent_
left < B.parent_left, B.parent_right and B.parent_left, B.parent_right < A.parent_right

So, imagine that you have six partner categories like below. You can assign parent_left and parent_right by traversing the tree. The result is show in parentheses next to each node. Note that the values there are optimal; in practice, you can leave gaps in the numbers.
- Customers (1, 10)
  – Consumers (2, 3)
  – Partners (4, 9)
  – Basic Partners (5, 6)
  – Gold Partners (7, 8)
- Suppliers (11, 12)

You can retrieve all the subcategories of Customers with a single SQL query. Note that the values 1 and 10 are the parent_left and parent_right of Customers; they can be retrieved as part of the query itself.

SELECT id FROM partner_category
WHERE parent_left > 1 AND parent_left < 10

The last remark is that parent_left and parent_right can be updated without traversing the whole hierarchy. Removing a node does not require any change.

For adding a node, you can adapt the parent_left and parent_right with two UPDATE queries: one to “make some space” between the parent_left and parent_right of the node’s ascendants, and one to shift the parent_left and parent_right of all the nodes “at the right” of the new position. So parent_left and parent_right can be maintained efficiently.


I hope this helps understanding how they work.
Thanks,

Serpent Consulting Services.

Idea : From the questions of many programmers!
Reference : Own study, understanding.
Contents : Thanks to Launchpad for some good contents.

If you face issues on them, having your records imported by CSV:
To fix on your db:
alter table account_account drop parent_left;
alter table account_account drop parent_right;
and restart the server with –update=account.

Now a days, we are getting global, so why does the software have a feel of local? If you have the need to use the OpenERP in multiple languages, you can surely satisfy the need. Let me give you a  glimpse of this configuration and thus help you serve your aim.

As we know OpenERP is available in many languages for the users of different countries, but you might be unaware about the option to load many languages in OpenERP.


In order to proceed, please follow these steps:
  1. Login as Administrator, go to Settings menu and Click on the Load an Official Translation. Choose French Language (or a language which you wish to choose) and click on Load Button.


This will add an option to translate some terms of OpenERP into the language you chose. Lets say it French. Only those terms will be translated which are set to be translatable.
  1. Click on Languages in Translation Menu to check the French language is Installed or not.

  1. French language is Installed now click on it.

  2. Click on Active check box and Save it.



  1. Click on Users in Users Menu, and click on Administrator.



  1. Select language as French in User Tab and Save it.


  1. Now Log Out the system and again Log In with same Database.
  1. After Re-login you see the system is converted into French language.
  1. Do the same process ( Step 6 to 8 ) to get English language back into the system
    10. If you are not an admin user and you wish to set another language than existing one, you can follow these steps:
A. Move Over the right top of your browser, you would see logout button. Left to it find an icon for the edition of preferences of the user. 




B. Once the pop up appears, do the proper config and press 'Save'. You've done it!






We hope this has helped you serving your aim.

Rental Solution Using OpenERP.



'Rental Solution in OpenERP an integration of popular OpenERP modules 'crm' and 'rent'. The solution converts leads and opportunities into rent order and manges the return of the rented products without affecting stock equations and accounting parameters. Let's have a look into the flow of events

1. Create Lead

Menu : Sale > Leads

The sales person creates a lead with all the details he collected. If the lead is concerned with “Rent”, he can set it in the field “Lead Type”. Later the sales person converts the lead into an opportunity.



2 . Opportunity

Menu : Sale > Opportunity

In the new opportunity also you will see a field “Opportunity Type”. If the opportunity is created from a lead the “Opportunity Type” would be same as the “Lead Type”. Otherwise you have to set it as “Rent”. Later, based on the meetings and discussions, the opportunity can be converted successfully into an order. In case of rent, a new rent order will be creaetd.
