Development Book V17: Pivot view

A Pivot table view is the most effective tool for calculating and analysing data. We can create pivot tables in Odoo for our model so that users can see a table structure of all the records.

Let's look at how to configure the pivot table.

We must first create a model, menu, and menu action.

class VisaApplication(models.Model):
                           _name = "visa.application"
                           name = fields.Char(string="Name", help="Name of the applicant")
                           age = fields.Integer(string="Age")
                           gender = fields.Char(string="Gender")
                           date_of_birth = fields.Date(string="Date of Birth")
                         

                        <record id="record_action" model="ir.actions.act_window">
                           <field name="name">Visa Application</field>
                           <field name="type">ir.actions.act_window</field>
                           <field name="res_model">visa.application</field>
                           <field name="view_mode">tree,form,pivot</field>
                           <field name="help" type="html">
                               <p class="o_view_nocontent_smiling_face">
                                   Create a new record!
                               </p>
                           </field>
                        </record>
                        <menuitem id="parent_menu_root"
                                 name="Visa"
                                 sequence="6"/>
                        <menuitem id="menu_id"
                                 name="Visa Application"
                                 parent="parent_menu_root"
                                 action="record_action"
                                 sequence="10"/>
                        

The pivot view is then created as shown.


                            <record id="visa_application_pivot" model="ir.ui.view">
                               <field name="name">visa.application.pivot</field>
                               <field name="model">visa.application</field>
                               <field name="arch" type="xml">
                                   <pivot string="Project Tasks">
                                       <field name="name" type="row"/>
                                       <field name="age" type="col"/>
                                   </pivot>
                               </field>
                            </record>
