Hi guys,

is there any way to remove completely Followers ?

I don't want them at all. Already blocked some but still got them.

It's annoying

Please specify your question by elaborate it little bit otherwise the best answer could be as follows ( as per your question ) Go to Setting >> Technical >> Email >> Followers, select all and delete !

My question was how to remove followers, disable it completely. I don't want followers in my Odoo at all so I'm looking for the way how to do it.

Thank you all,

Already did it some time ago. I've checked  every view/form and blocked it or made it invisible adding attrs="{'invisible':[('x_simplified','=',False)]}"

x_simplified is a additional boolean field so if I want or need I can unhide followers and some fields which I presumed as unwanted or not important.

So every page(form) contain this extra radio button which is set False as a default.

Problem solved :)

hi, without hiding followers, can we stop sending notifications to followers ???,, i mean by changing code, can we make it,,, is it possible????

Everything is possible but depending on your knowledge and experience. However it might be tricky in Odoo because it's already built in. So to avoid automatic process you have to change a lot of code and that's why i decided to hide elements which create auto sending message to the followers instead.
Is much easier and always you can restore it just clicking on Advanced view or however you name it.

It works for me very well so  I'll stay with this solution.

Hi Dr obx, 

<div class="oe_chatter">

<field name="message_follower_ids" widget="mail_followers" groups="base.group_user"/>

<field name="message_ids" widget="mail_thread"/>


remove this code   in view.xml in your module

 eg:if u want to remove followers in hr_holidays module, you can remove it at hr_holidays.view.xml
