Updated 10 March 2022

INTRODUCTION

Print Odoo Reports via Zebra Printer allows you to print reports without downloading!!

Downloading and printing each report takes a lot of time and decreases productivity. You first need to download the document and then give a print command for printing.

Print Odoo reports via Zebra Printer is designed to make things easier for you. The module allows you to print the documents or files directly without downloading them. Additionally, you can configure and save the print template for reports in Odoo to print them in the desired format.

Further, you can assign a default printer for printing the reports. Once done, the QZ Tray client, when prompted, automatically uses the default printer and the saved template to print the reports.
