Hello guys,

Here is a new problem in Odoo. How to set a custom name to your PDF report with « Send by Mail » and both « Print » buttons???


Let's study the situation with the sales orders reports.

1) I have installed the module « Document Management System »

2) I have a custom value in « Save as Attachment Prefix ». Look all the AAAAA.


3) I go in Sales->Sales Order. I edit the sale order DE000014.


4) No matter the way I use to get a report PDF, the name is never with AAAAA... 

  • With « Send by Email », the name of the attachment is DE000014_.pdf
  • With the 2 « Print » button the name is sale.report_saleorder.pdf

Do you have best result than me? Are you able to customize your file/report PDF name?
