Odoo 16 Studio Book - Inherit Odoos Features

The Studio module allows you to use the existing feature of Odoo to create your own custom applications. You can use the fields, components, buttons, reports, etc., from an existing application to build a new one.

While creating a new menu for an application, you can either create a new model or use an existing one. You can create new models for your application by clicking the option ‘New Model’ while creating the menu.


On selecting the option ‘New Model,’ a popup window will be opened where we can enable different features, as shown below. All the selected features will be made available in your new model and also, this will speed up the app creation process.


Following will be the Form view obtained on checking all the features given:

  • Contact Details: Selecting Contact details adds a Many2One field linked to the model ‘Contact’ to the Form view, and two of its related fields: Phone and Email are also added. The Contact field is also added to the List view, and the Map view is activated.
  • User Assignment: Selecting User assignment adds a Many2One field linked to the model ‘Contact’ where you are allowed to choose Internal Users. Also, the many2one_avatar_user widget is used to display the user’s avatar. The Responsible field is also added to the List view.
  • Date & Calendar: Selecting Date & Calendar adds a Date field to the Form view and activates a Calendar view.
  • Date range & Gantt: Selecting Date range & Gantt adds two Date fields next to each other to the Form view: one to set a start date, the other to set an end date, using the date range widget. Also, the Gantt view is activated.
  • Pipeline Stages: Selecting Pipeline stages activates the Kanban view and three stages: New, In Progress, and Done are added to it. The pipeline status bar is added to the form view. Kanban state is also added. In addition, a color field is added to the list view.

You can also create your application using the existing model by choosing the option ‘Existing Model’ while creating the menu and choose your required model.

In that case, you can choose the model ‘Sales Order’ so that all functionalities of Sales Order will be available.
