Customizing Userinterface

on 12/18/13, 11:33 AM 3,249 views

Hi :-)

I wonder if I can customize the user interface by hand / code. I only need basic funktions (for the moment) and most of the things open ERP provides is not needed right now. e.g. I only need buttons for incomig products and delivered products and when a product is stored or sold a receipt has to be printed automatically. Thats basically it. Of course some other modules might be good but for the beginnig thats just what I need.

So the question is: Can I change the general appearance of what the user is able to see/use?

Thanks Dom

If you absolutely want to use the user interface, you will have to work at least with the following:

  • View editor in the developer mode
  • Settings > Technical > User interface > Views
  • Settings > Technical > User interface > Menu items
  • Settings > Technical > Database structure > Models
  • Settings > Technical > Database structure > Fields

Don't forget to inherit your views before making changes.
