How to Send User Activity Notification in Odoo 14?
With technology, we can cultivate a work environment where we are productive and more responsible.
Also, today’s workplace is characterized by the responsiveness to acknowledge and complete tasks on time. This is when setting up Activity Notification in Odoo 14 system came to our mind.
If you want to be more intentional about completing tasks on time, this is one of the best apps to immediately get your employees’ attention to tasks.

Use Case: Task Assignment Notifications in Odoo 14 Garage Management Module
Sending User Activity Notification in Odoo 14 means alerting users when asked to perform a specific task by their managers, team leaders, peers, or cross-functional team.
We implemented this feature with Garage Management module.
Let’s assume there are many technicians working at the garage. Several vehicles have arrived at the garage; some require repairing, while one of them involves welding, and a few others have been registered for regular servicing.
As a next step, the garage manager will assign technician/s for every vehicle repair request through the Garage Management module.
Integrating custom notification with the Garage module means assigned technicians will receive notification from the manager, which wasn’t possible otherwise.
Earlier, technicians would need to check the system manually to find allocated tasks. But with the Odoo Notification module, even if the technician is occupied in some other tasks, they could check assigned tasks directly from the notification panel once they are available.
