The Pipeline Status Bar is simple to implement in Odoo, but it opens up the possibility of using workflow.
Start by activating Odoo Studio for a Form View
Then click on Add a pipeline status bar
The following window will be displayed
Obviously “First Status”, “Second Status”, and “Third Status” are not very meaningful, so we need to change them to something more useful.
For this example, we are going to have three statuses for a product:
- In Review
Of course you can have more than three, and you can choose names that are meaningful for your business.
Click on the “Edit” icon
You can change the label and the value
Click on “Confirm” and you’re done:
You can then change it later if necessary:
However, you won’t be able to use Odoo Studio to change a standard Pipeline Status Bar.
That’s because they usually have business logic built into Odoo, and you could break that if you made changes.
If you want to check what has been setup, enable developer mode and ‘hover’ your mouse over the status bar:
Then navigate to Technical Settings / Fields
Or you can use Odoo Studio:
- Add a Kanban view
- Add Automated Actions
