Odoo Product Custom Options

Updated 5 July 2022


Each customer is different so having Variety options for various products is necessary to indulgence different people on your website. If you find it cumbersome to separately manage product variants in Odoo, then Odoo Product custom options provide you with the facility to offers product variety to the customers without actually creating any variants in Odoo.

The Odoo user can add attributes such as color, size, etc. directly into the product template and also manage their prices from the tab.

The attributes can then be added to the orderline while creating a sales order.


  • No need to manage the stock for variants of a product separately.
  • It provides a simple interface to add custom options of the product on the product view form.
  • Adds a configure tab on the order line to choose the options in a few clicks without searching in the whole inventory.
  • Displays all the selected options of a product on a single order line in the sales order.
  • Set appropriate input method such as the dropdown menu, radio button, enter time, date text or upload a file to add a custom option in an order line.
