It's better to add a button on your 'more' . Like this :

 <act_window id="Id" name="Name in the more"
src_model="model with the button" res_model="wizard called" view_type="form"

view_mode="form" key2="client_action_multi" target="new" />

<record id="id" model="ir.ui.view">

    <field name="name"Name</field>

    <field name="model">Wizard called</field>

    <field name="arch" type="xml">

Yes it is posible to add button in list view outside tree view but it will add button for all tree view.

<templates id="template" xml:space="preserve">

  <t t-extend="ListView.buttons">

<t t-jquery="button.oe_list_add" t-operation="append">

<button class="oe_button oe_highlight"





What about field? I mean, when a user is in tree view there is a selection field shown to him so that he can select on it before the tree is being populated.
