Google Module

Google Doc

In general, many users have a multitude of tools and files to conduct their daily business. Besides using your ERP, many amongst us still use separate text and spreadsheet files to cover specific business needs. We now offer you to integrate text and spreadsheet files with OpenERP 7.0. This offers to the end user the possibility to take these files into account whilst using OpenERP 7.0.

Its purpose is to offer a quick fix solution for those users, where the creation of a custom module to cover that particular user need would take some more time to obtain. Take a job opening in the Recruitment Process App as an example of an OpenERP object, you can attach an interview evaluation form you maintain in Google Docs, and dynamically link it to the said job application.

Then, you can share this Google Docs file with the persons you wish. Taking this example a step further, you can link a document template, say your interview evaluation template, and link them to all your job openings. And every time you have a need to hire, you can mobilize the Google Doc-based evaluation template.

You have to install google_doc module from Settings ‣ Modules. Don’t forget to specify your personal Google Docs credentials in your User configuration menu. (Settings ‣ Users ‣ Users (Synchronization tab))


User Configuration

After installing this module , you will find the Add Google doc option in Attachment(s) button at the top center of forms.

Sign in with Google and Facebook

As of version 7.0, external authentication is made possible. Open Authentication (the open standard OAuth) is used to this means. Two service provider accounts can be defined in OpenERP: Facebook and Google.

  • Facebook Graph is the platform that let us get information in and out of Facebook,

  • the Google APIs use the OAuth 2.0 protocol for authentication and authorization.

For that you have to install auth_oauth_signup module. After installing you can go Settings ‣ Users ‣ OAuth Providers select Allowed field of the Facebook Graph and Google OAuth2 providers.


OAuth Provider

We have integrated some Google applications with OpenERP, which allow users to view OpenERP data on Google. It will be available in extra-addons.
