Click "Run Anyway" to setup the add-in
The Add-In is a Microsoft
Outlook VSTO Add-In.
When clicking on the "Run Anyway" button, you start the installer as shown below. There you can review our publisher certificate, as well as click INSTALL to install the add-in.
Once Installed, Launch Outlook...
When you first launch Outlook after you've installed the add-in, you should see the ODOO TASK PANE on the right-side of your screen, and the CONFIG panel should be shown. There, in the config panel, you need to configure:
ODOO URL - This is the URL to your Odoo ERP
ODOO DATABASE - You will need Admin/Developer access to your Odoo instance in order to identify your database string. Contact your Odoo administrator and they can provide it to you if you don't know how to retrieve this yourself.
LOGIN - This is your standard Odoo login ID
PASSWORD - This is your standard Odoo password
NOTE: We DO NOT store your password on any of our server. The PASSWORD setting is encrypted and stored locally on your PC This means you will need to re-configure this configuration for every unique PC you use. This also means that Traction Consulting Group DOES NOT have access to your ERP system.
Once the 4 items above have been set, determine if you need Leads/Opportunities, Quotes/Orders, and or Invoices by indicating with a checkbox.
Finally, click the SAVE button to save your configuration. If your configuration settings check out OK, the CONFIG tab will be hidden, and you can now use the Outlook Add-In with your Odoo installation.
Using the Outlook Add-In...
Generally speaking, any email (or meeting) you navigate to will automatically populate the SEARCH box with the main sender's email address. This will help "automatically" search for related contacts to a particular email or appointment.
If however, you wish to search for a different contact, you can simply type a contact (or company) directly into the SEARCH box, and press "enter". The system will search your Odoo contact manager for Contacts and/or Company records that match that search.
Once a CARD is shown, you can click on the CARD, and you will be taken to the DETAILS tab. There you will see information regarding that specific record, including Company Name, Contact, Phone, etc.
Note that any piece of information UNDERLINED IN BLUE is a hyper-link. It will either take you to the record in question (if it is a Company name, or a Contact name), OR it might perform special actions (like attempting to dial the phone number, or firing off a new email in the case of the Email address).
In addition to standard data-fields, you can also see the record's most-recent Activity in the DETAILS tab.
