Create TODO message automatically based on some event

Hi Guys, 

I'm looking for how can we create a new TODO message automatically with some string message each time, I click a button in my custom moule.

Please share some idea and help me with this. Any help would be appreciated :)


ASP :)


I'm not sure of what you are asking, but I guess a server action might do the trick. You can create a server action in OpenERP Settings »» Technical »» Actions »» Server Actions or creating a XML on your module. I'll leave here an example of a server action I'm using to send an email to user when an object reaches a certain status on a module I'm developing:

Note: This action is called from workflow

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
        <record id="ir_actions_server_send_email_when_closed_nconf" model="ir.actions.server">
            <field name="name">Auto-email when request is closed, not confirmed</field>
            <field name="model_id" ref="model_generic_request"/>
            <field name="state">email</field>
            <field name="type">ir.actions.server</field>
            <field name="condition">True</field>
            <field name="email">object.requestor.email</field>
            <field name="subject">Your request object.name has been closed (not confirmed)</field>
            <field name="message"><![CDATA[


We are here to inform you that the request [[object.name]] you submitted on [[object.request_date]] with the following data:

        | Request - Details
        | Number: [[object.id]]
        | Responsible Person: [[object.responsible_name.name]]
        | Request description: [[object.request_description]]
        | Stating reasons: [[object.stating_reasons]]
        | Notes: [[object.notes]]

Has not been confirmed and is closed.

If you have any question, do not hesitate to contact your supervisor.

Thank you!]]>
