More completion options for datetime fields

This module was written to extend the offers shown to the user when starting to fill in a date. In standard odoo, the only offer is the date at 00:00:00 hours, while it can be convenient for the user to have other options, too. When searching for the end of a period, 23:59:59 would come to mind, and there also might be domain specific times that make sense.


If you do nothing, only the time 23:59:59 is added to the completion dropdown.

In your code, you can add an options dictionary with a key completion_options which contains a list if dictionaries detailing the offsets that should be added to the parsed date, like:

<field name="my_datetime_field" options="{'completion_options': [{'hours': 12, 'minutes': 30, 'seconds': 0}]}" />

which would offer to search for the date at half past twelve. Note that when you set completion_options, you have to list all options you want to see, as the standard options will be replaced with your list.


Start filling in your date in a search field and choose one of the additional options offered.
