Hello everyone, i am looking for a way in which i can customize Odoo especially the menus, forms and labels. I tried activating the developer mode, customized the menus but once i restart the Odoo service all the changes(of which i had saved) are lost. Is there anyone who has an idea on how i can interact with the source code so that i can make the changes permanently.
To edit menu names (caption of the menu)
Get the menu item id that needs to be modified from Settings->User Interface->Menu Items->Search for the menu ->using developer tool icon (bug)->View Metadata->XML ID
In the template of your module add
<odoo> <data> <record model="ir.ui.menu" id="sales_team.menu_partner_form"> <field name="name">Patients</field> </record> </data> </odoo>
Restart ODOO. Login to see the changed menu.
Here is the changed menu name (caption) for Sales->Customers to Sales->Patients
Thank you…how can i access this template please?
You can create your own module as mentioned here and have a template in that module.
