How Do I Create an Issue / QC Tracker Smart Button Using Project Management?

I've seen a number of Icon/Tiles on the product profile/view page of Sales >> Product (ie. the screen in which you are editing an individual product) such as the following:

Preordering Rules
Bill of Materials
Bill of Materials Structure
Analytic Rules

Is there any way to add an Issue tracker (for example) to this screen? This would be great for allowing notes or cases on known product issues, etc. to be made on a product based on feedback from customers. And it would be great to be able to look at a product's profile page and be able to instantly see issues and/or projects connected to it along with a number of projects/issues connected to it.

I'm just getting started with Odoo, and it seems like it is extremely powerful and extremely flexible at the same time. With that in mind, I'd appreciate if anyone has any insight into documentation available that might give me a hint in regards to how to implement custom tiles in this manner.

I believe this was covered briefly in the OpenDays presentations, however if anyone has any further information I would be grateful if you could reply to this thread.

This post from Github covers the details of creating smart buttons:


I believe this may help in understanding more about how to add smart buttons. I'll post back here once i've figured out how to apply it to the project management module. https://github.com/odoo/odoo/pull/1988#discussion_r16758542
