What Are the New Features of Odoo 17? A Comprehensive Overview

As we approach November 2023, the anticipation for Odoo’s 17th version is palpable. 

This latest iteration promises not just incremental updates but a comprehensive overhaul that aims to redefine user experience and functionality. 

Let’s embark on a detailed exploration of what Odoo 17 is set to offer.


1) App Rearrangement 
In a move to offer more personalized user experiences, Odoo 17 introduces the ability for users to rearrange the positioning of apps on their Home screen. 

This customization is made effortless with a simple drag-and-drop feature, allowing users to tailor their workspace to their unique preferences.

2) Dark Mode
Catering to the modern aesthetic preferences, Odoo 17 brings in a Dark Mode. 

Users can easily switch between the standard mode and this darker, more eye-friendly mode, offering a fresh look to the interface.

3) Form View Changes
Simplifying the user interface, the traditional “Create” button in form views has been replaced with “New”.

While the label has changed, its core functionality remains, ensuring users can initiate new requests or actions without any confusion.

4) Revamped Search View 
Searching within Odoo becomes more intuitive with the revamped search view. 

Centralizing options like “filler,” “Group By,” and “Favorites” ensures that users can find what they’re looking for with fewer clicks and greater efficiency.

5) Mobile Shortcuts
Recognizing the shift towards mobile-first operations, Odoo 17 enhances its Progressive Web Application (PWA) experience.

Users can now create shortcuts on their smartphone home screens, ensuring that Odoo’s powerful features are just a tap away.


1) Customer Information
Evolving its task management capabilities, Odoo 17 has renamed the “To-do” module to “Notes”. 

This change reflects a broader scope where users can not only list tasks but also jot down important notes and reminders.

2) Draggable Pop-ups 
Enhancing user interaction, the new version allows users to drag pop-up windows (or wizards) to the side. 

This feature is particularly useful when users need to view underlying data without closing the pop-up.

3) Product Catalog
A significant boon for sales teams, the new Product Catalog feature allows sales personnel to select products through a visually appealing Kanban view. 

This not only streamlines product selection but also enhances the order creation process.

4) Knowledge Modules

In an era where instant information is key, the Knowledge Modules in Odoo 17 ensure that users can access help documents directly.

This immediate access to information can drastically reduce downtime and improve productivity.

5) Department Organization Chart

For larger enterprises, understanding the company’s hierarchy can be challenging. 

Odoo 17 introduces a department organization chart, making it easier to visualize company structures, roles, and relationships.


1) Customer Information
The Point of Sale (PoS) module now allows users to add detailed customer information. 

This feature ensures better customer relationship management and personalized service.

2) QR Code Menu
Embracing the self-service trend, Odoo 17’s PoS offers a QR Code Menu. 

Customers can scan these codes with their mobile devices, place orders themselves and experience a streamlined ordering process.

3) Kitchen Screen 
Restaurants and eateries using Odoo’s PoS will benefit from the new Kitchen Screen. 

This real-time feed eliminates the need for constant page reloading, ensuring that kitchen staff stay updated on orders without any delays.
