Accounting Dashboard

In a business that is readily controlled with the use of the Odoo 17 Accounting dashboard, the Dashboard menu homepage includes Bank Accounts, Taxes, Accounting Periods, and a Chart of Accounts. Users are given an overview of all pre-figured journals, which include cash, vendor bills, bank accounts, customer invoices, miscellaneous operations, and more. As seen in the picture below, each journal has information on validated bills as well as late and unpaid invoices.

In the Accounting Dashboard window, click the "New Invoice" icon to create an invoice in the Customer Invoices journal. There is a graphical analysis of the journal that includes residual quantities. To view further information, click the three dots located in the upper right corner of each column. There are three parts to the journal: Reports, View, and New. Each has a number of options. Users have the option to open a new window and mark the journal with numerous colors. To eliminate a journal from your list of favorites, use the Remove from Favourites menu item. The Accounting dashboard provides detailed features for each onboarding panel.

Various operations, including customer invoices, vendor bills, bank operations, miscellaneous operations, new transactions, point of sale entries, salaries, and expenses, may be created by users via the dashboard. Additional tabs allow for further operations, with graphical representations for a quick overview. Options menus allow users to view related aspects, create new operations, and view associated reports.

Accounting Periods

The main purpose of the Accounting dashboard is to show tax returns and the periodicity of fiscal years. By selecting the “Configure” button, users may create a new accounting period. The “Accounting Periods” box allows you to handle tax returns and fiscal year data. The Fiscal year-end option allows you to choose the start and finish dates of the accounting period.
