Like every year in October, Odoo will release its latest version - Odoo 14 - including highly anticipated extended and improved features. At Odoo Business Solutions (OBS), we are already very excited to finally see what kinds of time-saving hacks an other functions Odoo has been working on during the last year.
But before we go into detail and show you some of what is in Odoo 14, let's first take a look at how Odoo S.A. collects information to decide which improvements, additional apps or features to include in each new version.
How does Odoo determine the features and new functions to work on for the next version?
Feedback from the community - including Odoo partners, customers, consultants, support agents, etc.
User tests - which are performed throughout the entire year of developing the new version.
Internal tasks - meaning improvements detected in Odoo S.A.'s internal operations
For Odoo S.A., the feedback received on current functions is the most critical component when working toward improving Odoo. In 60% of cases, direct feedback results in an improvement in the next version of Odoo.
