So, what else is Odoo doing in the upcoming releases?

Let us start with Human Resources, including the attendance report, payroll account operation units, contracting operating units, leave management and more.. a change in leave management (day-based encoding) which allows you take leaves in a day, half day or hour bases.

Accounting is an integral part of Odoo, managing your bills and expenses, controlling your supplier invoices and accounts and much more. But in spite of all of that accounting greatness Odoo has to offer, now you can automate vendor bills from emails, and confirmed transactions create a payment in Invoicing/Accounting app for an easier reconciliation!

In sales, where you convert quotations you create into sale orders, allowing your customers to do it with online quotes you can create, and Odoo eSign. Odoo has decided to let requesting a specific delivery date for the sale order easier, delivery dates have been improved with better tooltips.

Logistics, which is tracking goods from your warehouse to the customer location, will be integrated with easypost! And work orders can be processed with barcode scanners!
