Send notification messages to user

Web Notify

Send instant notification messages to the user in live.

This technical module allows you to send instant notification messages from the server to the user in live. Two kinds of notification are supported.

  • Warning: Displayed in a red flying popup div
  • Information: Displayed in a light yellow flying popup div

To send a notification to the user you just need to call one of the new methods defined on res.users:

self.env.user.notify_info('My information message')


self.env.user.notify_warning('My marning message')
Sample notifications

The notifications can bring interactivity with some buttons.

  • One allowing to refresh the active view
  • Another allowing to send a window / client action

The reload button is activated when sending the notification with:

self.env.user.notify_info('My information message', show_reload=True)

The action can be used using the action keyword:

 action = self.env.ref('sale.action_orders').read()[0]
     'views': [(False, 'form')],
    'My information message',
    # optional
    action_link_name=_('Open Sale'),


This module is based on the Instant Messaging Bus. To work properly, the server must be launched in gevent mode.
