How Can Odoo 17’s Recurrent Task Feature Streamline Manufacturing Processes?

Entrepreneurs face the dual challenge of keeping up with the latest industry trends, such as smart factories and AI integration, while managing the nitty-gritty of daily operations. In this high-pressure environment, even the smallest hiccup can disrupt production schedules and eat into precious profits.

Odoo 17’sRecurrent Task Feature is a game-changer for the manufacturing industry!

This feature-rich platform doesn’t just manage your finances and inventory; it empowers you to automate recurring tasks, the very lifeblood of a streamlined manufacturing process.

Imagine a world where mundane but critical activities like machine maintenance checks, quality control inspections and raw material reorder triggers happen automatically, freeing up your team to focus on innovation and problem-solving.


In Odoo 17, recurrent tasks have undergone significant improvements :

1) Dynamic Task Creation

Unlike previous versions where tasks were scheduled for specific days (e.g., every Wednesday), Odoo 17 introduces dynamic task creation. 

The next task is generated immediately after the previous one is completed, thanks to the implementation of subscriptions. This ensures a seamless and continuous workflow, enhancing efficiency in manufacturing operations.

2) Enhanced Task Tracking

Odoo 17 offers more comprehensive task statuses, including “In Progress,” “Canceled”, “Waiting”, “Changes Required” and “Approved.” These statuses provide better visibility and control over manufacturing projects.

3) Automation for Greater Productivity

Automation is the key to boosting productivity in manufacturing. Odoo 17 automates the generation of new tasks upon the completion of current ones. This eliminates the need for manual intervention and reduces machine downtime, leading to improved overall productivity.


Consider a scenario in a manufacturing unit where equipment maintenance is critical. With Odoo 17, you can :

  1. Set Automated Maintenance Schedules : Schedule daily, weekly or monthly maintenance checks.
  2. Trigger Instant Alerts : Receive immediate notifications if sensor data indicates a potential issue, enabling prompt action.
  3. Generate Work Orders Automatically : Create work orders for technicians as soon as a task is completed, streamlining the repair process.
