Extra Info Step in eCommece v9

on 6/14/16, 6:38 AM 176 views

I need to collect extra information with my online orders - the extra info step on the website seems perfect for this job. But I can not see where I can add/ change fields within it. 

Is this possible, if so where can we go to look and change?

In v9, extra info is an'advanced' feature to do exactly what you want...

In V10e it should be integrated with the form builder and so an end user feature.

So, in v9, you need to use html editor and add manually your fields.

These fields should start by x_...

If fieldname is matching one field  from the model, it will be write on this field.

Else it will be added as a note.

If, what you need is to write on a basic field, you need to create a new x_ field of the same type, and do an automated action to write on the basic field at the same time.

Don't worry, it's seems complex, but you will see, it is simple to deploy...

And itshould become more 'user friendly' in v10.

Thanks for this information - can I also ask where the output of the fields can be found in the backend? - would this be within the order itself?

Lastly, is there a timeline for Odoo 10?

I have just checked the code...

So I confirm the match for field x_...

But if field doesn't exists... it is just ignored and NOT added as a note :/

Yes, it is write on the current sale.order.

For the v10, there are no exact date from what I know...

but we present this version during Odoo days... So a bit after this event... (https://www.odoo.com/event/odoo-experience-420)
