An Overview of Product Variant Management with Odoo 16 Sales

Functional Odoo 16 Sales

Product variants are used to differentiate single products by varying their size and color. Products that use variants can be controlled at the product template level (for all of that product's attributes and variants) or at the variant level (for specific variants).

Offering various variations of a product to clients is a successful method for increasing sales. Odoo allows you to configure several variants of a product in the Inventory module, just as we did in the Odoo Sales and Purchase modules. To begin, make sure that the Variants option is enabled under the settings of the Sales module as shown below.

Let's consider an example where the company sells Furnitures and it includes attributes such as Shapes - Round, Rectangle, Square

Material - Wood, Steel

Size - Large, Medium, Small

Color - White, Blue, Grey

These are some of the attributes and their value that can be added to the product accordingly as per the customer's need.

To create an attribute in Odoo 16 sales module, go to the sales module configuration menu, The Product Attributes option is available under the configuration menu as shown below.

When you select the Attributes button from the Configuration button, Odoo will direct you to a platform that contains a list of the attributes that have already been configured. The Attribute name, category, display type, variant creation status and e-store filter visibility are displayed. You can use custom filter and group options in this window to perform sorting operations. Use the Create button to add new attributes.

The Attribute Name box allows you to specify the appropriate title for the attribute. Specify a category in the Category field to group related properties in the same section of the e-commerce comparison page. You can set the display type of the attribute used in the product configuration to Radio, Pills, Selection or Color.

Radio: Choices are shown in a bullet-style list.

Select: are displayed in a dropdown menu.

Color: Choices display as little colored squares that reflect any HTML color codes that have been set.

Pills: Options appear in a square box to select the attribute

In the Variants generation Mode, you can select the technique of variant generation from the following options:

Instantly: As soon as an attribute and its values are added to a product, all possible variations are immediately created.

Dynamically: Each version is created only when the sales order is updated with the relevant attributes and values.

Never: Variants for the attributes are never created

Once the attribute is utilized on at least one product, you cannot change the variation creation mode. By selecting Visible in the filter visibility of the online store, you can offer customers the opportunity to filter products according to their characteristics. The attribute filters on the eCommerce page will be hidden if you choose the Hidden option. By utilizing the Add a Line button, you may list the Attribute Values one by one. When the Is Custom field is turned on, users can enter unique values for the attribute value.
