Odoo Help


After creating partners as the ADMIN user, regular users (even with Sales Manager group permissions) can't see anything.

I am new on Odoo, I am testing to see the viablity to deploy in my company. Right now I am using version 8.

The thing is, all of my tests have been done using the admin user, I have created clients, suppliers, employees, etc. I hace creates a couple of users linked to their employee and have assigned a client to that employee, which by the way has management rights i the sales module. The thing is that no matter what I try, my users can´t see what the admin has created. I have tried many things but simply can´t make this work. Am I missing something?

Thanks for your time

Thanks a lot for you reply.

The default filter is applied, but also removing it doesn't show the contents.

I did some more testing and tried to create a client from the user and I received the permissions error. I am certain that this whole thing is permissions, but I don't know which should I set since this user has everything enabled (or at least that is what I thought)

Have you checked "Contacts creation" in User/Access Rights/Others for your users?

Be sure to NOT Check portal option !

The portal option is particular.

When you are portal, you are not classic 'user'... so all right is not apply, and you have restrrcted access.

So you give access to what you want for some record only.

The purpose is for example to share just the sale order from the current user.

EG: One customer who buy on your ecommerce, will only have access to his own sale order to know the status.

<field name="comment">Portal members have specific access rights (such as record rules and restricted menus).
They usually do not belong to the usual Odoo groups.</field>

is there any filters applied in the top-right search area ?

If yes, you can remove the filter to see the records ...
