Odoo is the world's easiest all-in-one management software. It includes hundreds of business apps:
CRM | e-Commerce | Accounting | Inventory | PoS | Project management | MRP | etc.
I wish to send emails to odoo to change data in specified records of an existing model in the system. Is there any documentation on this subject or a clear example that shows how to process a general purpose emal? As I wish to run on odoo-on-saas I cannot write a custom module but would be obliged to process the incoming email and update my data purely via server actions.
There are one or two posts on this system but these are out of date (the crm.lead description field is no longer written by the incoming email for example). Also there is no clear indication of whether a new record MUST be created - I have tried leaving this field blank and setting it to create a record of type message and neither seems to work.
Did you ever find a working example on how to propagate fields in the body of an incoming emal to certain records of an Odoo model? Even two years later I can only find the examples you allready mentioned, which are no longer relevant for current versions of Odoo.
Thanks in advance!
Create an imap catchall-account for your domain and configure incomming mail for this account (settings -> General Settings). Odoo will create mail-aliases for most of you objects (settings -> Email -> Alias), you can also add you own aliases.
You can also add more incomming mail accounts and administer "Actions to Perform on Incoming Mails".
Very interesting question.
But, how to parse the email content ?
Can you tell me what you think about : https://github.com/Smile-SA/odoo_addons/tree/7.0/smile_action_trigger
