Automation: Server actions for stage update and Kanban state update

on 8/9/16, 5:12 AM 1,040 views


In Odoo 9 I would like to create some automated actions concerning project issues. Here is what I would like the system to do:

1. Move an issue from a certain stage to another when there has not been any update for x days.

2. Change the Kanban state of an issue to Ready for next stage when the issue is in a certain stage and an e-mail reply to the issue is received.

I know how to set the conditions and filters for the "automated actions" but I do not know how to create the according "server actions". I guess this requires "Execute Python Code" as "Action To Do", or is there another way? If it requires Python coding, can someone tell me if this is a lot of work? I guess it shouldn't be, as all models and fields are already defined. But I am also not Python-savy ;-).

Thank you for any replies in advance! Best, Thomas

Yup, I think you need to define a python function to be called by the cron to achieve your task :]

I think it'll not be too much coding just searching for the targeted records then change there state in regards ...

Hope this could helps
