What is the need / problem ?
There is a potential user that has its own e-commerce and management software (with Odoo) , who would need OFN only for aggregating orders. They would need to connect their actual e-commerce to OFN in order to have their products’ list (changing every week with no constance) always updated on OFN and to receive back from OFN orders, aggregated by hub/shop (something similar to the existing report for “order cycle by supplier”), directly on their software.
Who does it impact ?
At the moment this connection would impact very positivly the Italian instance, that woul be used by some more users connected with this cooperative of producers, but I’ve heard about interest in this interoperability also for Katuma and French instance
What is the current impact of the problem ?
It’s not a problem, only a not fully developed opportunity
What is the benefit of focusing on this ?
It’s a very specific case that could anyway be very usefull for spreading the use of OFN among cooperatives using Odoo.
Potential solutions that will solve the problem ?
[brainstorming to list feature candidates]
They would need, in details, for connecting their Odoo with OFN. I don’t actually know if some of those connection could be done with existing API):
- From Odoo to OFN - to automate the updating of their list (product name, code, price) on OFN in base on changes on their own website; We could then support each group to create their own accont on OFN and to open their order cycle (I don’t think this could be automatic…).
- From OFN to Odoo - to receive, at the end of an order cycle, the information of the cumulative order (something very similar to the existing report for “TOT order cycles by suppliers”) directly on their own management software, connecting the Name of the group (Name of the hub/shop on OFN) with their cumulative order (Name of products, code, quantity) and the expected delivery date
