How can I assign different managers to different warehouses?

I have a scenario where there are many warehouses in the same company and each warehouse has a different manager.

How can I create a manager for each warehouse so that all he can see is the operation and activities of the warehouse he is managing?

Record rules comes to mind immediately but i'm hoping there's a simpler way.

Thanks for your response Baiju. I was hoping there was an easier way than this but I guess my worry has been confirmed with your response. Looks like I will have to create a new field so that the Owner field is left intact to do what it was originally designed to do.

Do you have an idea what I can do about this: https://www.odoo.com/forum/help-1/question/how-to-handle-raw-materials-from-different-locations-69947?

Hi Ademola,

First of all you have to enable Multiple warehouse feature of odoo..

You can do that by following steps:-

Settings==>Configuration==>Location & Warehouse --> check the feature Manage multiple locations and warehouses

From now you can access Locations from:-

Warehouse==> Locations

Then you can use Owner as Manager and give him access right by customization or

you can create a field Manager like:-

manager = filelds.Many2one('res.partner', 'Manager')

and use this for further customization
