  • Elements: - Selector type: 2 type of selector are available: xpath and css selector. - Selector: you can select an attribute directly with selector respective methods (/@name for xpath for exemple), otherwise the text content will be used.

    • Inspect Element
    • Right Click on the blue line in side panel (in the DOM)
    • Copy > Xpath or CSS Selector

Note that you may adjust the frequency of the cron that process mails queue if you set a high frequency in the alert cron.

Limitations

  • Javascript is'nt interpreted (turn on "Disable javascript" browser option to always have correct selectors)

Improvements

  • Add a regex field. It will be applied on the element result in order to track more subtle changes.
  • Add option to interpret javascript with selenium => There is a problem to make selenium works inside a odoo process.
