Product Packaging in Odoo 14 Inventory

Functional Odoo 14 Warehouse

Odoo 14 offers support for three different types of packaging. 
1. Creating multiple packs for a single product
2. Creating a pack of different products
3. Delivery package
In the Inventory settings we can enable the Packages option. This can be found below the Operations Section. Only after enabling it and saving changes will we be able to manage product packaging.

We need to enable Product packaging below the Products section.
product-packaging-in-odoo-14-inventory-cybrosys
We can check these packages and how it is managed. As packaging is part of the sales operation we can check these features with the help of the sales module. When the Sales module is integrated with the Inventory module of Odoo, we will be able to manage sales operations efficiently by ensuring better packaging support. 
Configure Product Packaging
Product packaging is the option that can be viewed in the Configuration menu. This is found below the Product Configuration. Now, Click open Product Packaging to configure new packaging.

We have enabled packaging in Sales and Inventory Modules as well as packages.
Packaging is the pack of multiple products. We can say 10 chocolates in a box or 6 tea cups in a box. At the same time packaging is the packing of products for tracking the product.
Packages
Packages and Product Packaging are different. First we can check Packages below the Products menu. 
product-packaging-in-odoo-14-inventory-cybrosys
Packages are the packs of products for example, parcels and boxes. We use this to track the product.
We can find preconfigured packages here,
product-packaging-in-odoo-14-inventory-cybrosys
We can find the products in a pack in packages. Here we can find that the product is Cabinet with doors and the quantity is 1. But we have packed it as a package to trace the product.
product-packaging-in-odoo-14-inventory-cybrosys
Packages can have different products whereas packaging is the single pack of multiple units of the same product. 
Product Packaging
We can check Product Packaging in Configuration. We don’t have any preconfigured product packaging here

So let us create a new one. 
product-packaging-in-odoo-14-inventory-cybrosys
I have titled the packaging as Pack of Six. The product is white board pen and the quantity is 6 units. We can save this package. Here in packaging we can add only a single product. That is a single product with multiple units.

Product Packaging in Sales Inventory
1. Package of the Multiple units of the same product 
To check this we have to go to the Products menu in the Sales module. Choose a product from the product list first. I have chosen a Flower pot.

When we edit the product we can find different tabs. Choose the Inventory tab and below that we can find the Packaging option.

Here we can set the packaging.
We can add lines here
product-packaging-in-odoo-14-inventory-cybrosys
This window appeared when I clicked to add a new line.
Here we can set the packaging to manage the product packages.
I am adding Pack of 12 as the Packaging and The quantity is set as 12. Now we can add barcodes if required. The company name can also be added if we want the package to be applicable to a particular company. Here, I am leaving that column as it will enable us to make this package applicable for all companies.

I have created three different packaging here.

We can save the changes and then create a Sale order for Flower pot.

We can go to Orders and create a Sales Order. We have selected the customer details. Details like delivery address and invoice addresses have also been selected. Below Order lines we have selected the product as Flower pot. We can find the packages here. Dropdown menu of Packages gives us all three packages we created earlier .

We can choose any of the packages and then we get a warning.

This message warns us we have to sell 12 units. Just click OK to select the package.
Then we can find that the price has changed based on the total number of quantities and unit price.
