The Open Document Format for Office Applications (ODF), also known as OpenDocument, is an XML-based file format for spreadsheets, charts, presentations and word processing documents. It was developed with the aim of providing a universal document format that could be used with any office software suite. (Source: Wikipedia)
Creating Financial Documents in ODF
]project-open[ includes an interface to export ]po[ financial documents into OpenOffice ".odt" format.
This interface allows users to print out invoices, quotes, purchase orders, delivery notes etc. using OpenOffice. Using the ODF-Converter plugin for Microsoft Office, it is also possible to use Microsoft Office Applications to open ".odt" files and thus to process and print ]project-open[ financial documents.
You activate the OpenOffice integration when you upload an ODT template into the ]po[ template storage. The page includes instructions and sample templates to start with. To apply the OpenOffice template, please "edit" any of your financial documents and change the "Template" field to your ".odt" template. After saving, please select the "Preview using template" link.
]project-open[ will replace placeholders in the template by values from users, projects and companies.
Status and Installation
The OpenOffice integration has a "production" status and is part of the ]project-open[ product since version V220.127.116.11.
Creating Object Lists in ODT Format
]po[ is also capable of exporting list of objects such as Projects, Users, Companies, Tickets, etc.. This currently requires the installation of an external package developed by Cognovis and available at https://github.com/cognovis/intranet-openoffice . For instructions on how to install OO headless please refer to this page.
