This module requires the  Maintenance module. However, if you do not already have this module installed, Odoo will install it for you during this module's installation!


Navigate to the Maintenance app.

Adding Purchase Details to an Equipment

Once there, click EQUIPMENTS > MACHINE & TOOLS. This brings you to a kanban view of your existing equipments.

You can add a new item by using the Create button, or modify an existing record by selecting it from the view and clicking Edit.

Under the Product Information tab, you will see three new fields:

Purchase Date:  The date the equipment was purchased.

Purchase Condition (New, Used or Other): The condition the equipment was in at the time of purchase.

Purchase Note: Any additional notes you'd like to add for informational purposes, such as 
why it was purchased or what piece of equipment it is replacing.

When ready, click SAVE.

Archiving an Equipment

You may also Archive a piece of equipment by clicking the Active/Archive smart button.

If the piece of equipment is Active, clicking the smart button with Archive it. If the piece of equipment is Archived, clicking the smart button with Restore/Activate it.

Good to Know!

If an equipment has been archived, it will not show up on your list of equipments or when you search equipments unless you first set a filter for 'Active: is false'.


This module adds a new button to maintenance equipment form view that enables the user to Archive equipments. Additionally, it adds `purchase_date`, `purchase_condition`, and `purchase_note` to `maintenance_equipment` model and form view.
