We are building an customization that adds fields to the Quoted Line Items module in 7.9. We can successfully add the fields the Layout using an extension. However, the documentation http://support.sugarcrm.com/Documentation/Sugar_Developer/Sugar_Developer_Guide_7.9/Architecture/Quotes/#Adding_Custom_R… requires that you add the additional fields to the record.php.
Can we do this in an upgrade safe fashion without having to download the file from Sugar OnDemand make the change and then upload the file via Module Loader?
The issue that there seems to be if there are many changes record.php there is not an easy way to add additional fields to the related_fields.
