Sales teams security

New group for seeing only sales channel's documents

  • Odoo Version

Sales documents permissions by channels (teams)

Production/Stable License: AGPL-3 OCA/sale-workflow Translate me on Weblate Try me on Runbot

This module adds a new group called "Channel manager", that includes the proper permissions for showing only the information related to that channel (having assigned that channel/team or no channel at all, independently from the assigned salesman):

  • Leads/Opportunities
  • Contacts.
  • Quotations/Sales Orders

It also handles the propagation of the sales team from commercial partners to the contacts, which standard doesn't do.

And finally, there are rules for partners to be restricted to the own ones for the group "User: Own Documents Only" for being coherent with the permission scheme. Someone with this permission will see:

  • Contacts without salesman nor channel assigned.
  • Contacts without salesman assigned, but the same channel.
  • Contacts with them as salesman, independently from the channel.
  • Contacts with them as follower.
