What All Configuration Options Available in Odoo 15 Field Services

Functional Odoo 15 Odoo Enterprises

The Field Service module in Odoo ensures that all operations regarding a field service quotation are managed effectively and efficiently. With the help of this module, one can easily monitor the services provided by a company to their customers. After purchasing a product or service from a company, sometimes the customer requires an expert’s assistance in order to understand the proper functioning of the product/service or installation/maintenance activities. In such cases, companies often provide field service options for customers to help them at their workstations. You can keep a record of all field services provided by your company in the Odoo Field Service module. This module will be helpful to create new tasks for field service, assign employees for the particular task, record timesheets of each employee, monitor the progress of the task, invoice the time & material to the concerned customer, and many more activities.

In this module, you will get some advanced configuration options in the menu to improve the performance of the module. Using these options, you can create projects, stages, worksheet templates, products, and tags for various tasks in field service. While creating a new task in this module, you can configure these options on the task.

This blog will give you an insight into the configuration options available in the Odoo 15 Field Service module.

Without any delay let’s take a look into each of these options in detail. When you open the Field Service module, you can find the Configuration menu in the main menubar of the module as marked in the screenshot below.

Stages

In Odoo, you will get an additional platform to define various stages in almost all modules for the operations conducted in that module. Defining stages will help a user to understand the progress of operations easily. The Kanban view will arrange each operation separately according to the stage they reached. In the Field Service module also, you can assign stages for the projects effortlessly using the Stages option from the Configuration menu. According to the progress of projects, you can change them from one stage to another.

It is possible to give a rating to the project when changing stages. The Rating Email Template can be used to send an email to the customer when your project reaches this specific step. If the stage doesn’t contain any project to display, you can fold them in the Kanban view by activating the Folded in Kanban option. A description of the stage can be added in the respective space to give information to your teammates about the purpose of the stage. You can save the new stage using the Save button.
