Re: Legacy system migration question

Hi,

yes - something like that. Odoo won't be used parallel to the old system. It's 
just there are many different kinds of objects with many records so I do not 
want to spend 2 days on cutover day exporting and importing the data.

My idea is something like incremental import. Incremental in the meaning of 
not only records but also objects.

So I'd first configure importing users - fiddling with it till work as expected. 
On next run it would only import/update new/updated records.
When that is done I'd continue to let's say contacts. Etc...

I have some kind of client/server in mind. Odoo being server where I'd be 
configuring what should be fetched, mapped, imported. Small client where the 
source data is that would be serving data according to Odoo's requests...

Best regards

	Radovan
