How could you change your position the field customer(is customer),that is in Other infomation of Customers, too put it after the client's name

in order to change the position, you need to first replace the field with xpath and then add the field after desired field/group/page

Inorder to change the position of a field you need to inherit the original view where the field is defined the give the code as follows

<field name='partner_id' position ="after">

#redefine the field to be reposition

<field name='is_customer' />


If this doesn't work then replace the sheet and in that just reposition the field
