On every emails send out from OpenERP there is global signature as a link to visit customer portal, for example sending invoice by email, at the bottom written as: " Access this document directly in OpenERP "

How to customize this ? or how to hide or delete the portal link ?

The functionality is activated by enabling the Portal-module. When you send a document to a customer (quotation, invoice), your customer will be able to signup to get all his documents, read your company news, check his projects, etc. It can be disabled via Settings > General Settings > Activate the customer portal (and uncheck the checkbox).

Unfortunately the email-footer is hardcoded and automatically added if a partner is associated with the current document. After some extensive testing we found that the portal module is not (yet) suitable for our company. You best leave this module disabled until the following issues are resolved:

  • Footer can be customized through the user-interface
  • The correct server url's can be configured somewhere
  • It is exactly clear for the user when emails are sent to customers (maybe ask via popup dialog?)

At settings you can edit the email template

You can change that siganture on mail_followers.py on the mail folder.

sent_by = _('Sent by %(company)s using %(odoo)s')

signature_company = '<br /><small>%s</small>' % (sent_by % {
            'company': company,
            'odoo': "<a style='color:inherit' href='https://www.odoo.com/'>Odoo</a>"

use the command grep -R "th estring you want to find" on the addons folder or on the folder you want to search

this work!

There is no functionality within OpenERP to edit this, so it would have to be done in the source code.
