When you load the calendar (meetings) in odoo, the month view shows up by default.

How can I show the week or day view by default?

Is there any related configuration option or a custom module is needed?

(I know it's been too late but this could help someone)

You can use mode attribute of the calendar tag.


<calendar string="Invoices" color="journal_id" date_start="date_invoice" mode="week">

Best regards,

Thank you, another reason why odoo documentation is lacking...

Hello George!

I do it that editting the file web_calendar.js in addons/web_calendar/statics/src/js/web_calendar.js in line 257 I modifyed this

defaultView: (this.mode == "month")?"month":
(this.mode == "week"?"agendaWeek":
(this.mode == "day"?"agendaDay":"month")),
defaultView: (this.mode == "month")?"month":
(this.mode == "week"?"agendaWeek":
(this.mode == "day"?"agendaDay":"agendaWeek")),

Setting the default value to "agendaWeek" and its working properly!

in my mind this configuration will require development.
