x2many defaults

This module was written to allow you to use the previous line’s input as defaults for the next line you add.


  1. on a x2many field, say options="{'web_x2m_defaults_from_previous': ['field1', 'field2']}"
  2. after the first line of input, succeeding lines will have the last input’s values as default
  3. demo data adds this for the ACL list field in the groups form
