Following are the points which shows the difference between v6.1 and v7.0:-
On average all processes (e.g.: purchase → reception, create and renew contracts, configure products, etc.) are performed 38 % faster on OpenERP 7.0 than on OpenERP 6.1.
Version 7.0 reduces the number of clicks and keystrokes by a quarter or more, and more than halves the distance traveled by the cursor.
As « time is money », OpenERP 7.0 will reduce implementation time and costs, lower the learning curve for new users and bring productivity to every employee.
The new status bar has been re-designed to give the users a clear view of all the steps they will go through to complete a certain operation. Users are able to see the progress of their lead, quotation, sales order, etc. just by checking the status bar on the right hand side of their form view. The stage in blue indicates the stage that the OpenERP document is currently at.
In OpenERP 7.0. the form view of each object has been redesigned so that the object the user is working on resembles a real document.
The new kanban view is that you can use it and customize it as you go. You can add new columns, fold columns, reorder columns using drag and drop and edit/delete existing columns.The overall look and feel of kanban views is much cleaner in version 7.0 than in 6.1.
In OpenERP 7.0, we have restructured the menus: the reporting and settings have been aggregated each in one place. Furthermore, the vast majority of the menus are now unfolded, the user no longer needs to click on the menu name to see the rest of the menu items, they are all visible, by default all the time.
In version 7.0, OpenERP has created the Action Needed indicatorIt indicates the number of objects requiring action from the user. It can be the number of vacation requests to be validated by a manager, or the number of new resumes, which need to be reviewed by a recruiting officer.
No more confusion between "Stages" and "State" now in OpenERP 7.0 . With version 7.0, we simplified this and only kept the stages. For example, in Opportunities you can now pick between different stages: New, Qualification, Proposition, Negotiation, Won or Lost.
In version 7.0, the user’s interface is customized according to their rights. For example , if a user has no permission to edit sales orders, the corresponding button will not appear in the view of a sale order.
