Add 'View this email in browser' feature

Project description

Beta License: AGPL-3 OCA/social Translate me on Weblate Try me on Runboat

This module enables you to add a link in your mail templates, so the users can view the resulting email in the browser in case they are badly displayed in their clients.

Table of contents


You can configure an expiration time (in hours) by going to Settings > Technical > System Parameters and changing the value for mail_browser_view.token_expiration_hours.

Any zero or negative values will disable the token expiration. Default value is 720 hours (1 month).


Upon module installation, a secure token will be generated for each mail, allowing it to be reached via a constructed URL. You can then put the following placeholder:

<a href="#" class="view_in_browser_url">View this mail in browser</a>

anywhere in your mail templates (of course, the link text can be changed). If you use templates not managed through Odoo editor, it is strongly advised to use the mail_inline_style module so the styles do not get messed up.

Be aware that this feature will not work for templates having “Auto-Delete” value set to True. To avoid any unwanted 404 errors, all the placeholders within such templates will be removed automatically in the generated mails.
