Drop target support

This module extends the functionality of the web client to support dropping local files into the web client.

By default, an attachment will be created when dropping a file on a form.

Further, this module is meant as a base drag&drop module supporting other actions after some file is dropped so that other modules can add more features.


To use this module, you need to:

  1. drag a file from your local computer onto an Odoo form view
  2. it should become an attachment of the currently opened record
Try me on Runbot

Known issues / Roadmap

  • dropping on list or kanban views would be nice too
  • handle multiple files
  • add an upload progress meter for huge files
  • trigger custom events about different stages of the drop operation for other addons to hook in
