What are The Features and Functions of the Odoo 16 Approval Module

Functional Odoo 16

A pipeline of procedures that must be followed in order for a piece of work or various employee requests to be accepted, often including departments and staff members that evaluate, approve, or reject it, is known as an approval process. After receiving permission, the work either advances to the next level for revisions or returns for another round of approval. Despite the widespread use of automation in modern businesses, some still require manual approvals, such as sending paper papers from one department to another. A document, order, or invoice must first be authenticated and authorized before it can be executed by the department within the company that is in charge of it. This process is known as approval management. Every decision made inside an organization has an influence on its overall well-being. Thus, care and responsibility should be used to guarantee that all orders are correctly recorded and delivered on time.
The Odoo 16 Approval Module is a complete solution to manage all of your employee approval processes online. Using this platform,  the employees can submit their various work-related approvals and requests, and the managers can verify, approve or reject the employee requests in the same platform. Some of the module's characteristics are shown below.

*In this platform, you can select a request approver, even if they are not a manager, and choose whether to grant both sorts of approval.

        *It is simple to submit and handle your requests that include Trips, Office Supplies, and Payments using this application. Additionally, you can quickly find out from your approval dashboard if the requests have been approved or rejected.

        *With the help of an easy-to-use configurator, you can quickly design the approval types that suit your needs.

My Approvals Menu and creating New Requests

The “My Approvals” menu is the first menu section of the Odoo Approval module platform that contains two menu options such as “New Request” and “My Requests.”

New Requests

The "New Requests" window, which is also the homepage of the module and offers multiple approval dashboards, as seen below, is instantly visible when entering the Approval Module.

The dashboard for different approvals can be found here. It is organized in Kanban cards and includes cards for business trips, borrowing items, general approvals, contract approvals, payment applications, and applications for automobile rentals, among other things. The "TO REVIEW" button on the left side of the Kanban board allows us to see how many requests are still awaiting approval. And we can create a new approval request by opening the  “NEW REQUEST” button from the Kanban card. To make a new business trip request, I simply clicked on the "NEW REQUEST" button in the "Business Trip" Kanban card. As a result, the associated request configuration form will now appear, as seen below.

To the appropriate Kanban card, the employees can generate any kind of request that corresponds with their requirements.

My Requests

We can obtain the “My Requests” page from the “My Approvals” menu. Using this area, you can continue to keep an eye on the progress of your own personal requests.

As you can see from the screenshot above, your requests will be organized as “To Submit,” “Submitted,” “Approved,” etc. The Kanban cards allow you to view the requested information. There is only one request posted here, and it is in its initial stage. Once it is uploaded, the request will be added to the "Submitted" section. You can add new requests by clicking on the “+” symbol. 

Manager Menu

The “Manager” menu can be used for managers to Review, Manage and Approve the requests that are sent by the employees. This menu contains two sections named “Approvals To Review” and “All Approvals.”

Approvals To Review

The manager can check out the pending requests in this area that are awaiting review and approval.

You can export the files or documents of the approvals using the “Export All” icon provided under the “Approvals to Review” title. This area seems to be empty since there aren't any requests waiting to be reviewed here.

All Approvals

All permission requests sent to the manager are shown in a dashboard under the "All Approvals" menu option. Therefore, if you are a manager or the individual in charge of approving employee requests, you can obtain a list of all the approvals which come within your area of responsibility.

Your approvals will be listed according to the “Approval Subject,” “Request Owner,” “Category,” “Activities,” and “Request Status.” You are able to review or approve the requests by clicking on any approval column. If you have a lot of approvals, it's possible to use the "Filter," "Group By," and "Favourites" options to sort the necessary approvals.

Configuration Menu

Odoo 16 offers compact settings functions in the “Configuration” menu of the “Approvals” Module platform. This menu includes “Approvals Types,” “Products,” and “Product Variants.”
