1. Print product labels in Odoo by default
The standard printing in Odoo can be done in the following way:
You go to the Individual product, click the ‘Print labels’ button.
You select the label format you’re going to print, then click ‘confirm button’.
After that a PDF document will be downloaded. Select the PDF document, open it, overview it and then send it to the printer manually from your computer.
The printer must be connected directly to the computer. Agree, it’s not very convenient?
That is why our team decided to simplify this process by developing the Odoo Direct Print module. Now, you don’t need to download PDF or ZPL labels before sending them to the printer. Everything is done automatically in one click.
