Hi All,

Business requirements:
We must create an Odoo Lead or Opportunity from data received by email on an EXTERNAL website.

We have already created the Odoo incoming mailserver that creates the Lead.

However we want to map name, address, email and telephone numbers etc from fields in the form to the corresponding fields in the Odoo model (Lead/Opportunity).

We think we need a SERVER ACTION to do this or XML-RPC script.

Can anyone supply an example?

Can you embed the Odoo 'Contact Us' form in your website?

XML-RPC script OR something that generates an XML file with these values on a remote server. Then build a scheduler on Odoo that checks the folder every xx time and parses the XML files. Quite some options. :)
