Contacts to lead

on 1/4/16, 3:10 PM 833 views

Want to have a button on the customer(res.partner view) from where a lead can be generated with auto populating the customer/contact info.  Along with the button would like to provide a text box where the user can fill in some details(basic requirements for the lead) which can go to internal notes of the lead.

  would like to make it on my own but need some guidance...
