Hi Brijesh,

You can inherit the project tree view in your custom module and need to add end_date in that. It is possible to remove fields from view by position="replace" keyword in xml.

Hello Brijesh,

Yes, It is possible to add/remove any field(column) from the view. For that you just need to inherit the view.

Here is the example to add a field in view:

<record id="view_project_inherit" model="ir.ui.view">
    <field name="name">project.project.inherit</field>
    <field name="model">project.project</field>
    <field name="inherit_id" ref="project.view_project"/>
    <field name="arch" type="xml">
         <xpath expr="//field[@name='total_hours']" position="before"> 
                <field name="date"/>

After adding this code in your .xml, update your module.

Here, You can write positions like,

  • inside: placed inside match (default)
  • before: placed before match
  • attributes: used with <attribute> tags to add new
  • replace: replace match
  • after: placed after match

Hope this will help you.

Thank you.

Well of course it will solve your issue but it is not the best way.It will work only for that database.
