                      Odoo 12: other improvements

                      On the technical side :

                      •  Robustness - Prevent user to delete bases data like UoM categories or activity type. Prevent users to break their email templates. Creation of a super admin to prevent users to break admin access rights. 

                      • Action Manager - Refactoring of the action manager. Removed View Manager which is now included in action manager.

                      • Staging performance - Optimize notification process and followers computation.

                      • Remove action on Fetchmail - Incoming email servers are not linked to a unique model anymore. With aliases and automatic thread creation, emails can create records in various models.

                      • Performance Optimization - Translation loaded 10x faster and 15% saving time on module installation by avoiding view validation.

                      Regarding the other modules, you will not really be disoriented compared to the previous version.
                      Here is what was found after a quick overview:
                      • Subscriptions - The assigned salesperson will now be alerted when something needs to be done on the subscription.

                      • Accounting - Payment is only validated in Odoo once you have proof of payment, it stays as a draft before that. You can also now set up a direct debit on batch payments. 

                      • Invoicing - Automatically generated communication field based on invoice number added to the payment request for wire payments. 

                      • Expenses - Get the expenses and vendor bills related to your project on your project overview. You can also view how much was re-invoiced to the customer.

                      • Timesheets and Forecast - You can now create a SO and Invoice from the project app itself (project overview).
