The slides are available at Sugar Fall '17 (7.10) Overview for Sugar Developers
Jeff Bickart asked during the webinar:
Is there anything being done to fix needing to add to Quotes/record/record.php for related_products?
Currently, the only way to add fields to quotes now is to include them in the related_fields array in record.php. We're exploring possibilities to make this better in the future.
Can you please provide example code to use a parser to update the related_fields? It's a lot of work to update N instances of SugarCRM where one has to download the record.php for Quotes, create a custom version, and upload it via module loader.
From talking with a few of the engineers, there is not a simple way to do this customization. One option for you is to investigate how to use SidecarListLayoutMetaDataParser with a custom action/endpoint. upgrade/scripts/post/7_ConvertPopupListView.php has some sample usage.
Rakesh Agrawal asked during the webinar:
Can the dashboard be exported?
We do not currently support import/export of dashboards through the UI. We're exploring the possibility of supporting import/export in the future.
Holger Schmidt asked during the webinar:
Will there be a migration path for the next OP release for Elasticsearch? Until now, there was always a release which supported both the old and the new version (e.g. 7.8 with ES 1.4.4 and 1.7.5)
The upgrade to Elasticseach5.4 has breaking changes. Mappings in ES5.4 are different than ES1.7.5; therefore, we could not support both versions of Elasticsearch for the Sugar 7.10 release and that is also the case with the next OP release.
We are working on documenting the upgrade path for OP customers.
Alexandre Tremblay asked during the webinar:
any potential pitfalls when customizing the emails module. I saw it's not available inside studio. Any other limitations with out-of-the-box features like adv. Workflow?
Answer:Can you provide some more details on what you're planning to customize?
Some general advice:The record view and list view are now in Sidecar, so they can be customized the same as any other view. However, there are some caveats:
Steven Parsley presented a session on UnCon on the Do's and Don'ts for Using Email APIs. You can get the slides here.
In my case, we have few big clients with specific use cases regarding emails.
Case management (Inbound Emails) Group emails round-robin assignment (Inbound Emails) Email SignaturesEmail TagsCustom ACL
I do understand that the email module is in a special case and implementations that follow usual best practices can still encounter design problems with it. On a high-level, it will look like this.
Standart Dashlets, list, report, etc- That should be all good and bazillion times better than the old UI. Does sugar plan to develop specific dashlets for further improving the UX?
Metadata Extension Framework- Extra fields or relationships will be needed, the module is not available in Studio but is the metadata extension framework a viable option? The special email table structure was not allowing it before.
Custom ACL rules (Extension Framework)- Visibility rules will also need to be implemented, is the Email ACL can be extended like other modules?
Roadmap on Advance Workflow- The Email module is still not available in the adv workflow. Is this in the roadmap for a near future?
Any potential issues with existing workflows?
Thanks for the performance concern, I do understand that list displayed information will need to be optimised for systems containing a huge quantity of emails.
Alexandre Tremblay I tracked down some answer for you:
It’s on the backlog to provide a couple of OOTB dashlets, currently planned for Summer '18 (subject to change). If you have specific requests, please email email@example.com.
Additional columns can be added to the Emails table using the extension framework. There is currently no extension endpoint for customizing the emails_text, emails_beans, and emails_email_addr_rel tables.
You can extend visibility and ACL's the same as any other module. Be careful not to create conflicts with the rules that are defined in the OOTB strategies.
Can you email this question to firstname.lastname@example.org?
Can you please let me know the use case for email module in Advanced workflow?
Wai Kit Suen asked during the webinar:
In terms of charts feature, is it able to do sorting from high to low / low to high on the fly?
Not yet, but we'll keep this request in mind for the future.
