One of the priorities we have at OpenERP s.a. is usability! In this extent, we have developed another feature that we believe will simplify the use of your configuration in OpenERP. How did we make this be possible? First of all, we grouped the configuration in one single place and simplified the screen by giving you the freedom to decide what you want use and what you want to see.
In former versions of OpenERP, the user had to change his interface, by switching between simplified and extended, then install modules, and/or add groups to users. As a user, you were really not offered many choices and sometimes had to use some features that you didn’t need.
Now, each application has its own configuration defined in one form. All those forms are in the menu Settings of OpenERP. The configuration form gives the users options to select from and apply immediately. Once done, the system is configured immediately.
