Create an Odoo Action for First Time User Login

How to create welcome screens & other Odoo actions that fire the first time a user logs in

This advanced developer video explores how to create an Odoo action that fires for the first time a user logins into Odoo. This can be useful for welcome screens or other one time tasks that you may wish have a user see only the first time they login to Odoo.


Like many of our videos, this video was created out of a specific feature that simply is not available in standard Odoo. In this case, we wanted to explore how we could have a custom welcome screen the first time a user logs into Odoo. Once the user had successfully logged in and was presented the welcome screen, it would then clear out that action so they would not get the screen on subsequent logins. This is an advanced Odoo development video.


You never get a second chance to make a first impression. While we had a specific goal to have a welcome message, the video takes a more generic approach allowing you to attach any action you wish when the user logs in. Taking the design from the Odoo home action, Diogo walks experienced Odoo developers through the design and the steps used to implement the Odoo module.


Part of the purpose of these advanced Odoo developer videos is to give insight into the process behind building an Odoo module. Therefore we have asked Diogo to allow us to see the steps he takes in implementing the design. You get the value of not just seeing all the code that must be written to accomplish the objective. This video demonstrates how you can research the framework, find and locate where you must change code, and how to leverage existing Odoo functionality to save development time.
