Document Management System in Odoo 15 Document Module

Functional Odoo 15

Efficiently managing all the documents is the most arduous task for every organization. An excellent and efficient digital management tool is necessary for any organization or person to store their data. The Odoo Document module is a perfect tool to help you efficiently create new documents, keep essential files and existing files, place recorded files, retrieve documents, ensure their safety, and many other aspects. The Document management system allows you to organize all your company's documents and files in a single place.

By implementing the Odoo Document module, you can create a paperless, entirely digitized document management system in your organization. Using this module, you can easily send, share, differentiate, and archive scanned documents within a few seconds. It is effortless to generate business documents such as vendor bills, tasks, and product sheets, for manufacturing.

In this blog, let us have a deep analysis of the Document window of the Odoo Document module.

The Home dashboard window of the Odoo Document module is portrayed below.

The home dashboard window will give you an overview of all the documents uploaded in the system in both Kanban and List view. The above image depicts the Kanban view, and here you can see that the screen is divided into three sections. When you look at the first section, which is placed on the left part, you can see various filters. These filters are very useful for categorizing your data. That means you can easily categorize your documents based upon the multiple workspaces you defined in the platform i.e., Tags, templates or Attached files, and many more aspects. If you want to view all the defined documents together, click on the All menu.

When you look at the above window, you can view various preconfigured workspaces. They are Internal, Finance, HR, Marketing, Fleet, Products, Recruitment, and  Spreadsheet. Odoo allows you to configure various workspaces. You can see the option for configuring a new workspace under the Configuration tab and we can discuss it in the coming blog. So all the configured workspaces will be listed here and this is very useful for easily categorizing and quickly accessing data. You just need to click on the required workspace type, now all the workspaces that come under this particular category will be displayed in the center portion of the window.
