What’s New in OpenHRMS Features?

First of all, we would like to thank all of you who contribute your efforts to building up an open suite for a complete HR solution. We are getting 100s of emails daily including an appreciation for making this HRMS completely open to all. As we are a community, it’s not only us but each and every one of you who give their hands to place a brick on the OpenHRMS building. We are always open to hearing from you. You can mail your suggestions, bugs, and additional features that you would like to have in the suit as on info@openhrms.com. 

Now let's look into the new features in the latest update of OpenHRMS modules.

Before starting with each module we would like to say that now all the modules of OpenHRMS will support the Arabic Language. I hope the Middle East people will enjoy this.

Now let's start with OpenHRMS Core.

When it came to Odoo V13 the web responsive module was not functioning in its exact way. But in the new OpenHRMS Core, the menu view is changed to one with the exciting icons of the menu. Also one of the best 


features ie, the search bar. You can search all the menu from the search bar itself.

Next is the provision to sort the menus. As you see OpenHRMS has a lot of features. While the features increase, the list of the menus will also increase. Odoo gives the provision to change the sequence number of the menus but in OpenHRMS you will be able to sort the menus. You only need to enable the settings. 

Settings -> General Settings -> Menu Management -> Order Menu Alphabets

By enabling this feature the main menus will be sorted automatically. But the Dashboard, Apps and Settings menu will not be changed as they are the first and the last menus in default odoo.
