Change user’s default landing page after login

Let’s say you want to set the Inventory page as the default landing page:

  • Activate the developer mode (see the tip below for this part).
  • Access Settings > Technical > User Interface > Menu Items
  • Click on the Inventory page to view its settings.
  • Modify the Sequence field to 0.

Useful command lines

//restart odoo instance to reflect changes in modules
sudo service odoo-server restart
//show last 100 lines of log 
tail -f -n 100 /var/log/odoo/odoo-server.log
//install and uninstall a module
./ -d [database_name] -i [module_name]
./ -d [database_name] -u [module_name]

Enable developer mode

Normally, you can go to Settings and then click the Activate the developer mode button to enable developer mode. There is a method that enables developer mode on any pages I often use.

You just need to append ?debug after the web parameter in the URL. For example, replace http://localhost:8069/web#action=401&model=res.partner&view_type=kanban&menu_id=263 with http://localhost:8069/web?debug#action=401&model=res.partner&view_type=kanban&menu_id=263
