Hello in crm.lead the responsible user (user_id) is automatically added as follower to the new task. How can I add this functionality to add some users to my custom object?

Write to the message_follower_ids field.

You can overwrite the create function and inject the ids on the message_follower_ids

In your custom module, add a field like this: 'user_id': fields.many2one('res.users', 'Anyname', select=True, track_visibility='onchange'), Then create a record and click Save. The user you specified in user_id field will automatically added on the list of followers
