Add field Odoo Enterprise

on 5/16/16, 1:00 PM 1,040 views

I have seen multiple videos walking through adding a field.  However these menu's do not exist in the same location for Odoo Enterprise.  

How do I simply add a field to a form in Odoo enterprise.  Ie I want to add a field called "Phone 2" to the contacts module

1. Active the Developer mode - from the login name drop down in the top right of the page, select About, the click "Activate the Developer Mode".

2. From Settings --> Technical --> Database Structure --> Models, open the res.partner model (assuming you mean you want to add a second phone number to partners).

Must have been in my blind spot. I swear that "Technical" menu wasn't there the 15 times I tried before

I know how you feel. I often forget which tab I have activated Developer mode on - it never seems to be the one I need.
