Winter '19 (8.3) is Live

Posted by Rich Green Employee Jan 18, 2019

Sugar Winter '19 is now live and available for all customers hosted in the Sugar Cloud environment. Winter '19 is the next step in our core Sugar Cloud updates (New Sugar Release Process), providing accelerated delivery of new innovations for Cloud customers, as well as heightened levels of predictability for Sugar updates.

 

Sugar Winter '19 will significantly benefit customers running in the Sugar Cloud environment through the major features introduced in this release, detailed below.

 

Comment Log

The Comment Log field, a shared log of messages, comments, or other text, has been added to the Bugs and Cases modules and is available to be added by administrators to other modules. This new feature enables users to foster collaboration and provide a time-stamped record within Sugar so that everyone is on the same page.  With the comments log, important customer information doesn’t get lost in email or side conversation, but rather right in the context of the Sugar record. 

Comment Log

Exporting Reports

Sugar has expanded capabilities for all report types to export to CSV, thus allowing users to extract data from reports to use for gathering deeper insights.

Export Reports

Product Catalog Updates

Product Catalog Quick Picks Dashlet 

The Product Catalog Quick Picks dashlet allows users to access products that are recently used or marked as favorites and add them as line items on opportunities and quotes, giving users quick access to the products they use the most.

Favoriting Product Catalog Records

Product catalog records can now be marked as favorites via the Product Catalog list view/record view, Product Catalog dashlet, or Product Catalog Quick Picks dashlet.

Reporting on Product Catalog 

The Product Catalog module now is available to use in reports to give users a better picture of products within Sugar.

Quick Picks Dashlet

Quoted Line Item Currency

Users now have the ability to change the line item's currency when creating or editing quotes.

Quoted Line Item Currency Select

Advanced Workflow Updates

Process Validation 

The enhanced Process Validator lets users validate Advanced Workflow process definition designs on import and on an as needed basis. The validation job detects configuration errors as well as sequencing mistakes.

Admin Configuration

Process auto-save and auto-validate options have been added to Sugar's System Settings page in a new panel labeled "Advanced Workflow". This is also where users will find the Error Number of Cycles setting, which has been relocated in this version. 

Process Email Template To/From Variables

The Fields Selector tool now lets users insert the current (i.e. "changes to") and the old (i.e. "changes from") values of a changed field into process email templates.

Multi-Layer Module Relationships 

Create a new Sugar record and relate it to the target Sugar record or to a record related to the target record. 

Change Fields

Change the value of one or more fields on the target record, on records related to the target record, or on records related to that related record.

Advanced Workflow features are only available in Enterprise and Ultimate Edition

Posted by Rich Green Employee Nov 7, 2018

Sugar 7.9 will reach its End-of-Life (EOL) date on November 15th, 2018, meaning SugarCRM will no longer be providing customer support, maintenance patches, or bug fixes for 7.9. All customers deployed On-Premise and still using Sugar 7.9 in production should consider one of the following options at this time:

  • Migrate to Sugar Cloud prior to the End-of-Life date. All requests to migrate to Sugar Cloud must be submitted by November 15th, 2018.
  • Upgrade to version 8.0 (with the current patch being 8.0.1 at the time of this post), which will be supported until October 31, 2019, with an optional 12 months of extended support available for purchase. Sugar 9.0 will be released in Spring 2019.
  • Purchase extended support for version 7.9, which extends support through November 15, 2019. This will ensure customers running 7.9 beyond November 15th, 2018 will be eligible to receive critical security fixes. Please reach out to your SugarCRM sales representative for additional details about this program or send an email to sales@sugarcrm.com.

 

We understand that this announcement will require an action on your part and we aim to facilitate whichever path you choose in the most seamless way possible. Please contact your sales or support contact with any questions and we’ll look forward to helping you get the most out of Sugar.
