Overview of this book

With its latest iteration, the powerful Odoo framework released a wide variety of features for rapid application development. This updated Odoo development cookbook will help you explore the new features in Odoo 14 and learn how to use them to develop Odoo applications from scratch. You'll learn about the new website concepts in Odoo 14 and get a glimpse of Odoo's new web-client framework, the Odoo Web Library (OWL). Once you've completed the installation, you'll begin to explore the Odoo framework with real-world examples. You'll then create a new Odoo module from the ground up and progress to advanced framework concepts. You'll also learn how to modify existing applications, including Point of Sale (POS) applications. This book isn't just limited to backend development; you'll discover advanced JavaScript recipes for creating new views and widgets. As you progress, you'll learn about website development and become a quality Odoo developer by studying performance optimization, debugging, and automated testing. Finally, you'll delve into advanced concepts such as multi-website, In-App Purchasing (IAP),, the IoT Box, and security.

Defining the cohort view

For the cohort analysis of records, the new cohort view was added in Odoo version 12. The cohort view is used to find out the life cycle of a record over a particular time span. With the cohort view, you can see the churn and retention rate of any object for a particular time.

Getting ready

The cohort view is part of the Odoo Enterprise edition, so you cannot use it with only the Community edition. If you are using the Enterprise edition, you need to add web_cohort in the manifest file of your module. For our example, we will create a view to see the cohort analysis for tasks.

How to do it...

Follow these steps to add the cohort view for the project.task model:

  1. Define a cohort view:
    <record id="view_project_tasks_graph" model="ir.ui.view">
        <field name="name">project task cohort</field>
        <field name="model">project.task</field...
