Odoo 9 now provides a custom form builder
Unlike our previous developer videos in which you create a custom web application, in this video you don't need to have any experience as an Odoo developer. The form is created without you having to write any code at all. Using Odoo's drag and drop building blocks you can create a custom form in Odoo in a matter of minutes.
As you can see, you can add fields from Odoo models as well as create your own custom fields containing text, numbers, checkboxes, radio buttons, and many of the other interface elements you would expect on a web form.
Odoo allows you to tie these web forms to models inside of Odoo. For example you can use the web form to create a lead in the system or generate a record in the human resource system for a job applicant. Because the entire framework is open source an experienced Odoo developer can extend the web form framework to create records in other models as well. For example a product form that allows customers to recommend alternative products they would like to see your company carry.
