Odoo document system is clear and comfortable to use. However, it is not especially designed to work with files as specific cloud storage solutions like OneDrive, Google Drive, OwnCloud, and DropBox do. To process attachments users need to download a file, to change it, and to upload back. Documents are not synced locally and Odoo doesn't have powerful previewers and editors. Specific cloud storage clients don't have such disadvantages.

This tool is a technical core to provide logic of automatic and bilateral files synchronization between Odoo and your cloud storage solution. It is not of use without a real client app.

Automatic integration

Odoo sends attachments to clouds and retrieve files from there based on scheduled jobs. No manual interaction is required.
Synced attachments are physically kept only in a cloud storage, what increases Odoo interface performance. Simultaneously, you can open documents from Odoo in a second.

Bilateral sync

Odoo attachments are put into a cloud storage according to the direct sync job. Files uploaded to clouds would be integrated in Odoo as links based on directories' structure during the backward sync job.

Sync any documents you like

Any Odoo document might be synced: customers, opportunities, sale or purchase orders, tasks or issues, employees or users, and so on. You decide by your own which records should be in a cloud storage, and which should be left in Odoo.
  • Projects: have an own clouds folder for each customer project.
  • Customers: add all partner files in a single directory available both from Odoo and from clouds. Modify those using default cloud editors and access them when working in Odoo.
  • Employees: gather all files by this employee in a single cloud folder: photos, document scans, contracts. Access and upload those from Odoo and clouds alternatively.
  • Opportunities: carefully store all specifications, requirements, any files which would let you make a good offer.
  • Orders: keep all printings and contracts in clouds with simple availability from Odoo.

Easy accessible files

To open a synced file from Odoo just click on an link in attachments box. Odoo would redirect to your cloud storage solution and would try to apply a default editor / previewer. You may also access a whole folder of a current document by clicking on the button 'Open folder'.

Sync logs in Odoo

Sync activities might be logged. Control over files and folders creations, moves, name changes and removals. Just turn on the option 'Log sync activities', and you would be able to observe the history through the button 'Sync logs'.

Default folders for documents

The tool let generate default directories' structure for this document type during the very first sync of a related object. For example, for all employees you may have pre-defined folders 'Scans', 'Scans/Official', 'Photos', etc.

Yes, you can. To this end:

  1. Turn on debug mode

  2. Go to technical settings > Automation > Scheduled jobs

  3. Find the jobs 'Synchronize attachments with cloud' and 'Update attachments from cloud'.

Take into account that you should not make them too frequent. It is preferable this job is finished until a new one is started. Thus, the configuration should depend on how many items you to sync you have. Usually, the frequency is set up between 10 minutes to 4 hours.

Make also sure that you have set up enough time limits in your Odoo configuration file. Thus, LIMIT_TIME_CPU and LIMIT_TIME_REAL parameters should be equal or bigger than planned cron job time. For Odoo 13 consider also the parameter LIMIT_TIME_REAL_CRON.

An import notice for Odoo.sh clients: the maximum time for cron job might be set up as 15 minutes only.

Yes, you can. To that goal you should prepare a separate sync model on the configuration tab. Then, for each of those apply filters: for example by type of a project.

Try to make filters self-exclusive in order a document can be definitely assigned. For instance, 'customer but not supplier', 'supplier but not customer'. Otherwise, a specific document folder would jump from one model to another.

For Odoo v12 Enterprise you have 2 options:

  1. To sync only standard documents' attachments, but not to sync folders' and files' structure related to the Enterprise module 'Documents'.

  2. To sync both Odoo standard attachments and to reflect Enterprise Documents' folders/files. In such a case you need an extra add-on Cloud Sync for Enterprise Documents https://apps.odoo.com/apps/modules/13.0/cloud_base_documents/ (44 Euro).

No. We have strong reasons to avoid real time sync:

  • Performance issues. In case a sync is real time, each file upload will result in the loading screen.

  • Conflict issues. If 2 users simultaneously change an item, it might lead to unresolved situations. In case of regular jobs we can fix it afterwards, while in case of real time we would need to save it as some queue, and it will be even more misleading for users.

  • Functionality issues. In particular, renaming and restructuring of items. In the backward sync the tool strictly relies upon directories' logic, and during each sync 100% of items are checked. In case it is done after each update, it will be thousands of requests per second. If not: changes would be lost.

All synced files are kept only in the clouds, in Odoo attachments become of the URL-type. When a user clicks on those, Odoo would redirect him/her to a cloud storage.

No, the tool relies upon a single user end point. It means that all sync processes are done under a single cloud admin (app). Access rights for created folders / files are not automatized. You should administrate those rights in your cloud storage solution.

Yes, although in case of many folders / attachments to sync, the process might be slow. Simultaneously, our clients reported to us the environments with >10k partners and ~5k product variants to be synced, and the processes were acceptable.

A few points to emphasize:

  1. The sync is constructed in such a way that anyway any item will be synced and will not be lost, although it might be not fast. It is guaranteed by first-in-first-out queues and by each job commits.

  2. The number of objects might be limited logically. The models' configuration let you restrict sync of obsolete items (e.g there is no sense to sync archived partners or orders which are done 2 years ago).

No, since files are now kept in the cloud storage, and retrieving binary contents would consume a lot of resources. Odoo has a link which would redirect a user to a proper previewer or editor.

For models' directories (sale orders, opportunities, suppliers, etc.): you may assign your own name on the configuration tab for any document type.

For objects' folders (SO-001, John Smith, etc.): the tool relies upon the Odoo 'name_get' method for this document type. In case you need to make a different title, you should re-define this method for a specific model. It requires source code modification.

No, the module works with the pre-defined structure of folders:

  1. Odoo – a core folder for sync

  2. Models – folders for each Odoo document type. For example, 'Projects', 'Partners'. Distinguished by domain there might be more specific folders: e.g., 'Customer 1 Projects', 'Projects of the Customer 2', 'Internal Projects', etc.

  3. Objects – folders for each document, e.g. 'Project 1' or 'Customer 1'

  4. Files and folders related to this Odoo document to be synced.

As a result you may have for instance:

  • Odoo / Projects / Project 1 / files and folders related to the  project 1

  • Odoo / Customer 1 Projects / Project 1; Odoo / Customer 2 Projects / Project 3, ...

  • Odoo / Customers / Customer 1 / files and folders related to the customer 1

This structure is always flat, meaning that there are only those levels of hierarchy. Thus, it is correct that various document types can't be done within the same structure. Within the folder 'Customer 1' we can't keep the files related both to sale orders, invoices, and projects. Each of those document type has an own (or a few own) folders. Otherwise, we will not have a chance to make backward synchronisation, since there would be no criteria to rely upon.

No, the tool is only a technical core. You also need the connector for your cloud client.

According to the current Odoo Apps Store policies:

  • every module bought for the version 12.0 and prior gives you an access to the all versions up to 12.0.
  • starting from the version 13.0, every version of the module should be purchased separately.
  • disregarding the version, purchasing a tool grants you a right for all updates and bug fixes within a major version.

Take into account that Odoo Tools team does not control those policies. By all questions please contact the Odoo Apps Store representativesdirectly.

  1. Restart your Odoo server and update the module

  2. Clean your browser cache (Ctrl + Shift + R) or open Odoo in a private window.

Yes, sure. Take into account that Odoo automatically adds all dependencies to a cart. You should exclude previously purchased tools.

Regretfully, we do not have a technical possibility to provide individual prices.

  1. Unzip source code of purchased tools in one of your Odoo add-ons directory

  2. Re-start the Odoo server

  3. Turn on the developer mode (technical settings)

  4. Update the apps' list (the apps' menu)

  5. Find the app and push the button 'Install'

  6. Follow the guidelines on the app's page if those exist.

Sorry, but no. We distribute the tools only through theofficial Odoo apps store

Yes, all modules marked in dependencies are absolutely required for a correct work of our tool. Take into account that price marked on the app page already includes all necessary dependencies.  

No, third party apps can not be used on Odoo Online.

Red / orange warning itself does not influence features of the app. Regretfully, sometimes our modules do not pass standard automatic tests, since the latter assumes behavior which is in conflict with our apps goals. For example, we change price calculation, while standard Odoo module tests compare final price to standard algorithm.

So, first of all, please check deployed database features. Does everything work correctly?

If you still assume that warning influences real features, please contact us and forward full installation logs and the full lists of deployed modules (including core and third party ones).

As soon as you purchased the app, the button 'Deploy on Odoo.sh' will appear on the app's page in the Odoo store. Push this button and follow the instructions.

Take into account that for paid tools you need to have a private GIT repository linked to your Odoo.sh projects

Hello!

All synced files would be kept only in the clouds. Binaries would be removed from the Odoo server with the next cleaner.

Odoo attachments would become of the URL-type (when a user clicks on those, Odoo would redirect him/her to a cloud storage).

Hello Mohamed, do you mean the param ‘list_db’ (which is used to disable Odoo database manager)? If so, yes, all the connectors should work correctly. If the active database in clear and its URL (for redirection) is correctly set up, both login and sync must work.
