Contacts


For any business organization managing the contacts is very essential. Contacts running from leads to customers, partners to suppliers is very crucial for smooth and uninterrupted business flow. With the help of Odoo contacts module, one can easily keep track of every transaction carried between the business contacts. Being integrated with our modules of Odoo, it comes easy to quick fix things.

Firstly, install the Contacts Module from Odoo apps.

As soon as you enter the dashboard, you see the already created contacts.

To create a new contact, click the create button provided on top.

Under the create form, one can add all the basic information pertaining to the contact- image, name, address, contact number, email, tags, if he is a sales person/purchaser, accounting details, and so on.

Let’s go one by one.

Under Odoo you have two types of contacts:

  • Individual
