Odoo Vendor Import

Few customization and changes in existing functionality of Odoo will actually reduce work load and optimize the productivity and for the same we have introduced an ease feature for our beloved customer. Odoo do have default functionality for Vendor Import for a Product but it does not have the functionality to import file in different format along with the facility to ignore some data from import vendor file. At Pragmatic we have developed such feature where User can import file in 3 formats and also ignore columns and data init while importing which are unwanted and not required.

Vendor Import Configuration: Import Vendor File Format

The customize feature develop in Odoo system is available in purchase module. Below is the preview of import configuration. As shown below, vendor file can be imported in 3 formats EXCEL,CSV and XML.

Select the format in which Vendor is required and enter column code name as given in excel as shown below. Similarly for CSV & XML enter column name please check fig 4:

Vendor Import Configuration: Ignore Vendor Category:

This feature will negate the work for wasting time in removing unwanted field from vendor file manually . It is also helpful in case any specific product internal category is not required to upload which is taken in Vendor file so rather than removing one by one and searching and then removing user can directly select the product category and also can enter the column name and its value in the vendor ignore category as shown in Fig 2.

This customize functionality will increase the productivity at work place and the chances to upload wrong data will be removed completely. It is extremely easy to work on and fast enough to upload the correct data.
