  1. Interesting! I'm looking for something similar but just for minutes. I've created a datetime field that I populate with datetime.datetime.now() trough a server action linked to a button and now I would like to compute the minutes that passed to complete an order using the date_order field as source on pos.order model. Can you tell me how should I edit your syntax? Thanks!

  2. To find the desired results you have to convert both the dates in minutes. Better you check here: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/2788871/python-date-difference-in-minutes

    Check "Ken Cochrane's " answer. It will fix your thing.

Odoo: Qweb Templates Cache Issue

Hi Everyone, Today I was working on a hotel booking template in Odoo and changes made in the Qweb template(.xml) were not reflecting on updating module with odoo service restart. Tried few times without any success :(. Finally, I decided to delete the old template from Odoo backend and then update module again and it worked like a charm!! :) Steps to delete template from backend: Settings --> User Interface --> Views --> Search by template name Delete the used template. Although it's a small post, but I'm sure it will meet the purpose and help someone in the future. Thanks!!! Enjoy Programming!! :) Reference Links: =================================== https://www.odoo.com/forum/help-1/question/odoo-cache-and-updating-qweb-templates-84492

Odoo/OpenERP: one2one relational field example

one2one relational field is deprecated in OpenERP version>5 but you can achieve the same using many2one relational field. You can achieve it in following two ways : 1) using many2one field in both the objects ( http://tutorialopenerp.wordpress.com/2014/04/23/one2one/ ) 2)  using inheritance by deligation You can easily find the first solution with little search over internet so let's start with 2nd solution.
