Since the beginning of SugarForge back in 2005, we’ve crowned a SugarForge POTM ( project of the month ) each month to recognize the most outstanding and innovative add-ons, plugins, and extensions created by our vast Sugar community. It has also been a showcase of how extensive the Sugar platform is, helping provide ideas on new ways to build SugarCRM to solve the various needs of the users it serves. As many of you have noticed, the POTM has been on a bit of a hiatus lately as previous Community Manager Jason Nassi has passed on the reins to me and I am working on re-invigorating our community. That changes today, as we are going to bring back the POTM for July.
I’d like to make the POTM selection process a more open process to reflect our more open approach to community. So I’d like to open up the floor for nominations for the POTM from now until Thursday at 12:00am midnight PT, and then Friday I’ll throw up another post on this blog where you can vote for one of the nominated projects to be the July POTM. There’s just a few criteria a project must meet in order to be POTM.
- The project must be an active one, meaning the author must be supporting it and it must work properly with the current version of SugarCRM ( version 6.2.0 )
- The project itself must not have been a POTM previously.
- The project must be freely available from SugarForge.
