Shall I record the user's name when he/she modify some fields?

on 7/21/16, 3:53 AM 323 views

for example:


NO = fields.Char('Number')



I want the effect:

when somebody modified the field "NO"; his/her name should be record by "Modifier";

I use "onchange" and "depends", but failed; could you give me some advice?

Please share whatever code you have tried already.

You just have to check if NO field is modified or not and then store the current logged in user's ID in modifier.


def write(self, vals):
if 'NO' in vals:
vals.update({'Modifier': self._uid})
return super(your_class_name, self).write(vals)

it is so cool; these code meets my requirement perfectly.

Thank you very much for your time and effort.
