Odoo Pane V​iew M​od​​ule

Odoo previously known as Open ERP is an abbreviation of On-Demand Open Object. It is a license-free software, easy to use, and provides a ton of useful business modules for hassle-free handling of your business online.

One of the most useful and important features of Odoo is its ability to provide various options in which you can access or view your records. In simple words, we have a variety of view options for our records in Odoo.

Views define how the records are displayed to users in the UI. By default, Odoo provides various options in views for the users to decide how the records are being displayed.

There are multiple types of view options available in Odoo. Some of the common view options are:

Tree View

Form View

Kanban View

We can open a form view of a record by selecting it in the tree view. There is also an option to open a record by clicking on the kanban selection option.

If we want to access a different record’s form view, we have to navigate back to the tree view menu. And then select the records which we want to open. This can use up a lot of time for users.
