How can I add (link) a client (person) to a Project?

on 7/24/14, 8:06 AM 1,205 views

For my projects I want to know who is in the team of my customer.

I can only add users to projects, but not normal contacts... Any idea how to achieve this?

Thank you for your help!

You can add a custom field to project.project.

'customer_team_ids': fields.many2many('res.partner', 'project_partner_rel', 'project_id', 'partner_id', 'Customer Team')

<field name="customer_team_ids"/>

Either using the webclient or a custom python module.


If you want to avoid programming, you can use the webclient to add the field.

Log in as admin with Technical Settings access. Go to Settings -> Technical -> Database Structure -> Models. Select the project.project and add a new many2many field with Object Relation 'res.partner'.

Next go to Settings -> Technical -> Database Structure -> User Interface. Select the project form view (I think it is 'project.edit_project') and duplicate it. Rename your duplicate, set the Inherited View to the view you've just duplicated and add the field where you want it.

Hope that helps.

I am not that deep in openerp... so there is no out of the box solution?

I need code this?


Will be a tough time to find out where to start, but thanks a lot for your help!!! I'd also appreciate a few more hints for a real newbie.


Addition: Great input, thank you for your help!


Cheers, cubic
