Hi Drees,

You'll need to create an automated action that calls a Python function every time the scheduler runs. An automated action example:

<record id="ir_cron_scheduler_demo_action" model="ir.cron"> <field name="name">Demo action</field> <field name="user_id" ref="base.user_root"/> <field name="interval_number">2</field> <field name="interval_type">minutes</field> <field name="numbercall">-1</field> <field eval="False" name="doall"/> <field eval="'Your.mode'" name="model"/> <field eval="'process_demo_scheduler_queue'" name="function"/> </record>

The Python code:

#This function is called when the scheduler goes off

def process_demo_scheduler_queue(self, cr, uid, context=None): #Your custom code here.


@Yenthe my friend, thanks a lot for your answer but i am working with odoo9 and i have got this error:TypeError: old_api() takes at least 4 arguments (3 given)

@Drees this should work fine on V9, this example is working on my V9 environments. Have a look at my example module, which you can find here: https://github.com/Yenthe666/Odoo_Samples/tree/master/scheduler_demo

Hello Dress, 

You can also add functional filed in view so that each time your function will be called when view is opened.
