I would like to change the way of creating product move to the simplest possible.

So far I added in tree view a button with action <button name="action_view_stock_moves" type="object" string="Move product"/>. Now I don't need to go to the product then open moves then create or through Stock moves then "Create" and search for product, location, quantity etc. Just directly from products list if I want move something just one click to open form, then change quantity, pick location and "Confirm" my move.

With button added it opens a page for this product then I have to click "Create", is it possible to add a button with action create new move instead ?

As you can see, i want avoid one step and right after I click "Moves" open "New move" form with product already chosen, change quantity to move if required and click "MOVE" to finish whole process.

The problem is, product_template doesn't have this action available directly ;(

Hello Dr Obx,

In the action which is called you on button click,

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

so it opens tree view first.

Try to create own action for the same stock.move model and in view_mode, type only form and this action called on your button.

For ex :-

 <field name="view_mode">form</field>

so it opens direct form view for the stock move.

Hope it will helps you.
