Reporting and Configuration in Odoo 14 Planning Module

Functional Odoo 14

In every business, there will be certain objectives and targets. In order to attain these objectives, the company needs proper planning.  Planning helps you to get the right direction on what to do when to do and how to do it. This planning will help you to organize the methods and work of the entire organization. This results in the optimum utilization of the company’s resources, as well as the wastage of resources, which is reduced to a maximum helping to achieve overall efficiency. Modern businesses always face risks, but with correct planning and analysis all the risks can be foreseen and management can take relevant precautions in order to avoid it. Coordination of different departments is very important for the smooth functioning of the business. With efficient planning, all the activities of departments can be coordinated and the decision-making becomes much easier.  

Manual planning and arranging shifts of the employees is not that convenient as it takes a lot of time and contradictions in assigning shifts can happen. With the development of technology now you can execute the planning effectively and efficiently with planning management software. And Odoo ERP helps you to manage your business in all its aspects.

Odoo 14 has launched a new module dedicated to planning which was earlier integrated with Project Application which will help you to manage tasks and shifts easily. Allocation of schedules among the employees without any contradictions can be done with the Planning module.

Planning module

You will have to install the Planning module from the Application. Entering the Planning module you will be enabled to see all the schedules arranged in the calendar view in your dashboard. You can view the shifts of your employees according to their names, roles, and also according to the projects. This will help you to evaluate the work in progress of different employees as well as their roles and projects. The planning module also allows you to add new shifts to the calendar and you can assign work to your employees from here.

Schedules of the present day, week, month, and year can be viewed. Also, you can copy the schedule of the previous week. It is easier to send a schedule with the Planning module, all you have to do is click on the SEND SCHEDULE button. Another main feature of the Planning module is that it allows you to view the open shifts. Open shifts are those shifts that are kept open to any employee. If the employee that created the shift is unable to complete the task due to any valid reason then another employee can take his or her position and complete the task. You can also view your planned schedules by clicking on the My Planning tab. Your plans are displayed in the calendar form and you can add new shifts to your schedule or edit existing shifts. Additionally, you can send and publish your schedule by clicking on the SEND SCHEDULE button. Apart from these, you also get the feature of reporting and configuration.
