Hibou Odoo Suite: Maintenance Modules: Equipment Purchase Detail

Repository Versions:



Hibou's Equipment Purchase Detail module allows you to keep a record of important details related to the purchase of a piece of equipment with the following fields: Purchase Date, Purchase Condition and Purchase Notes.

Additionally, Equipment Purchase Details adds the ability to Archive an equipment with the addition of an Active/Archive smart button.

Getting started

To get started, open the Apps application.

Once there, remove the Apps filter from the search bar and search for "Equipment Purchase Detail". When ready, click Install.

Good to Know!

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.

Good to Know!


This version of Equipment Purchase Detail no longer includes the Archive/Active smart button as this functionality was made available in Odoo 13 via the Action menu.


This module adds `purchase_date`, `purchase_condition`, and `purchase_note` to `maintenance_equipment` model and form view.
