[8.0] Custom view per user not working

on 6/26/15, 8:48 AM 924 views


I made a custom view for purchase.order.form for a specific user. But this custom view isn't used when I log in with the specific user.

I'm missing something ? Do i need to activate an option somewhere ?

Any clue welcome.

I'm using Odoo v8

Dear Pascal,

The View layer is usually independent from login.

However, if you have created a custom view for a user, it will be understood that you have overridden fields_view_get() or load of action from web.

Usually, you should link the view to the Purchase Order action. If you want separate view fo separate user, you must create 2 actions, bind the specia view to the special action.

Another solution would be to use same view, but hide/show specific fields based on User's group.

Hope this helps.
