How to post a message in the messages and communication history

on 2/26/13, 3:51 AM 7,416 views

Hi there, I want to post a message to all followers of a customer if someone modify or edit the details (click the save button). This is intended to be informed about changes.

Is this possible? I didn't find any information about how to do that.

You have to create a new module that overrides the write() method of the res.partner object. In this method, you can then post the details of the change. A very simple example:

def write(cr, uid, ids, vals, context=None):
    res = super(res_partner, self).write(cr, uid, ids, vals, context=context)
    self.message_post(cr, uid, ids,
                      body="has been <b>updated</b>.",
                      subject="Record Updated",
    return res
