how do I set the default value for a field from the web interface?
In v6.1, the link to set a default value was in the contextual menu of the model. Where has this feature gone in v7?
First, you have to activate the 'developer mode'.
- Click on your name on the upper right corner
- Click on 'About OpenERP'
- Click on 'Activate the developer mode'
See 'How can I activate the developer mode' for more details.
Now, you should see a selection box on the top of each form (above the edit/create buttons). An entry of this selection box is 'Set Defaults'.
You need to display the form view of a record to see it. The selected record should have the value you want as a default.
In the 'Set Defaults' form, you are able to choose the value from the current form which you want as a default value. You can also choose if it is applicable to all users or only to you.
