I need to show user tagged to employee form view when user logged in to system(User should see his employee details in form view)

I tried like this

<record id="hr_profile" model="ir.actions.act_window">

<field name="name">My Information</field>

<field name="res_model">hr.employee</field>

<field name="view_type">form</field>

<field name="view_mode">form,tree,kanban</field>

<field name="domain">[('user_id','=',user.id)]</field>

<field name="context">{'my_self':1}</field> </record>

<menuitem parent ="hr.menu_hr_main" sequence="1" string="My Details" id="menu_self" action="hr_profile"/>   

I inherited search view and passed arg(i.e., [('user_id','=',user.id)]) but its not even calling the search method and its showing new form when I given default form in action,but search method called when we used default view tree or kanban

help me out

Dear Sairam,

You need to do some change in ir.actions.act_window in xml file

Just add to 'view_id' tag in action like

<field name="view_id" ref="your_module_name.new_modify_tree_id"/>


<field name="view_id" ref="base.res_partner_kanban_view"/>

Hope this help for you.

Best Regards,

Ankit H Gandhi.
