What are the New Features in Odoo 16


Odoo is developing by the day. Over the past few versions of Odoo, we have seen some drastic changes in the overall performance and the user interface of Odoo.  With the introduction of Odoo16, the whole system is evolving to a whole new level of sophistication and performance.

This blog will give you an overview of the new features of Odoo 16.


Odoo is introducing some new features and has prioritized performance with version 16 for ensuring maximum performance and prominence in its line of work. Improvement in the performance of Odoo is the primary aim of the new version rather than just a mere update from the previous version. Odoo 16 is the fastest, the most user-friendly, and the most high-end of its predecessor version.

New Module and Other Big changes

Odoo is Known for its highly integrated and easy-to-use modules which act as the basic building block of the entire Odoo database. This is one of the critical factors that support the user-friendliness of Odoo. The existing modules of Odoo will have a considerable number of additional features and tools integrated into them for ensuring more workflow and efficiency. With version 16 of Odoo, new modules and components take a new and improved shape.

Knowledge Module

The knowledge module is the latest addition to Odoo. Like the rest of Odoo, the module is highly integrated and works more like a Knowledge center to share knowledge among the employees and the administrator. Wikipedia inspires the module. You can create and share articles in the Knowledge module inside the organization mostly related to work for maintaining proper communication inside the organization itself. 


The knowledge module will also help you centralize the organization's information for easy access.  

The Improved Website builder module

With the Odoo 16 Website module, you can now have more control and customization options on the Blocks or the website building elements. Traditionally the front end and the back end of the module were separate, but in the new version, the front and the backends are merged for preserving a single interface giving more customisation options for the website.


The configurations can be done without reloading the page and will give you way more accessibility to the website configuration options. You can now have more filtering and grouping elements to add to the webpage for easy user management. 

Coupon and Promotions in Odoo 16 

Coupons and promotions are unified to one platform and can be accessed from PoS, ECommerce, and standard orders. The interface is cleaner, and the code is limited to short lines for the developers.


Traditionally, Coupons and promotions are treated as different functional features with their platforms, which confused some users about the Coupons and promotions program management process with Odoo. The unified platform for coupons and promotional programs will make it easy to configure and manage. The earlier version of the Odoo lacked eWallet, which is included in the new version.


The accounting module in Odoo is much faster and more efficient with the support of the new features and tools that can come in handy in real-world business scenarios. The Credit limit feature of the accounting module will let you manage the customer Credit limit now more efficiently.          

You can now wholly digitize your invoices with the accounting module for easy management and accessibility. 

A widget for reconciliation is included in the Accounting module for quickly accessing the reconciliation process. The Reconciliation Widget is designed to provide maximum user-friendliness in reconciliation management. The widget can be accessed from the Accounting module in the reconciliation section. 

The Currency Exchange difference split on the invoice will off the module and let you have more control over invoices with the accounting module.  


The inventory module is equipped with more tools and added essential features for improving the module's efficiency in inventory management. The force back order features in operation type and the improved shipping methods will give you more accessibility to inventory management and module usage. Automated batches in operation type internal transfer are one of the advantages of the module. With the advancements in the Replenishment management features of the module, you can view the replenishment visibility days.

You can choose from the Create Backorder field of the operations type configuration under the Inventory module to make the order tracking more efficient.


Users with less knowledge of management might click on Cancel when asked if they want to create a backorder which might cause a clutter in the orders making it hard to detect or track them. With the Create Backorder option, the user is forced to choose rather than cancel the backorder option.

Automated batches: The Inventory module's automatic batches feature will automatically create Batches based on settings on the operation types.


Group automatically transfers per contact, carrier, destination country or source/destination location. You can limit the size of the batches per move line, transfer or weight for easy management.

Replenishment visibility days will allow you to efficiently manage the replenishments by eliminating the issues of getting the replenishment visibility late or not in time.  The visibility days field as highlighted in the image given below will let you have the details of the ‘days to purchase’ setting but at the replenishment time level.


Merged Subscriptions Into Sales Order in Odoo 16

With Odoo 16, Subscriptions are merged into sales orders for easy management.         


As Odoo concentrates more on user convenience, the new merging of the Subscription with the sales orders will make it much easier for subscription management.

You can customize it based on the nature of your institution and individual employee grade management.

The Employee module allows its users to perform analyses and statics on the employees. Odoo can save and give detailed data on the whole employee activity process for easy management and workflow monitoring. More accessibility to employee skills and the reports on employee skills will allow you to easily manage the employees and use them based on their skill set.   


The MRP module now has Allocation reports for manufacturing. If a link is created with a sales order, customers can now see the live status of their manufacturing order at every stage or in between from their personalized customer portal. The features allow customers to be fully educated about the manufacturing process of the product they have ordered.
