You can activate the developer mode in the About Box by clicking About from the menu under your username in the top right corner of Odoo:

The developer mode will display a menu at the bottom of each view giving you access to advanced administrative tools related to view edition, workflow edition, translation, javascript tests, debug information, record log, default values, user filters,...
This menu will look like this:
