I could help you to develop anything and solve complex problems based on technologies, integrations and tricky stuffs mostly in Python with OpenERP/Odoo, Zato, Django and many others frameworks programming languages and technologies.

I offers consulting services to anyone with an unanswered questions or needs for customizations. Think about it, maybe it's better to have an expert to solve your issues and projects than having a full-time employee trying to understand what to do and how

I copy and paste your menuitem def and the Quotations menu get the group ok, as @Tobiasz saids check agains a user that doesn't have the group. You could also try this way:

<record model='ir.ui.menu' id='sale.menu_sale_quotations'>
<field name="groups_id" eval="[(4,ref('base.group_sale_manager'))]"/>

Also you need to check that the user that you are using to test this does not have a group assigned that inherit from base.group_sale_manager

For the menu position all depends of the sequence field so if you vary the value of that field to a value lesser than or higher than another menu sequence value the menu will be moved.

Always after a change in the menus you need to refresh the page because the menu need to reload

Hope this helps


The menu for sale orders by default have defined the groups: "base.group_sale_salesman" and "base.group_sale_manager". To left only the group "base.group_sale_manager" redefine it like this in your module:

<menuitem name="Sales Orders" id="sale.menu_sale_order" parent="base.menu_sales" groups="-base.group_sale_salesman"/>

Notice the - sign before the group name

@Axel thanks for your answer! the thing is that the 'Quotations' menuitem is indeed gone but somehow it doesn't work for the 'Sales Orders' and I have no idea why. I'm testing this on a new user with just the rights 'user' for sales. Could you give my second menuitem a try too please?

The default menu definition in the sale module have this two groups by default:
You don't need to define it again

@Axel it should only be accessible for the users in the group 'base.group_sale_manager' and not for 'base.group_sale_salesman' as it is by default.
