Searching Notes in Chatter - Odoo's Audit Log
One of the most valuable features of Odoo is the powerful Open Chatter feature that maintains important information about events on a document. As you can see in the screenshot, we can tell with this feature exactly when a quotation is created as well as any changes in sales person, amount, or the customer.
As users are encouraged to use this feature in Odoo to store critical information on a document, it is inevitable that they will wish to search these notes.
in just one hour, this video shows you step-by-step how to create a module that will let you search a message thread in Odoo and how to integrate that search into the Odoo Sales Order application.
