UPDATED: Removed poll from this post and instead moved it to http://micropoll.com/t/KEvJaZB3sn

Thanks for the feedback from everyone this week on what projects you thought would be fit for the title of July 2011 SugarForge Project of the Month. We had one overwhelming favorite amongst the nominations, as well as a few other projects that have also made a good impact on the community as a whole. In the spirit of openness and transparency, I want to open up the voting for the nominated projects. Here’s short description of the projects in the running:

  • ECalendar Easy and handy in using calendar module. Allows to schedule calls and meetings, display them on day, week, month and shared views, quick ajax editing, drag & drop. Works on CE, ENT, PRO versions.
  • Opacus Lite SugarCRM Outlook Plugin Archive multiple emails at once including attachments. Automatically archive new emails without user interaction. Supports custom modules. Create and view records from Outlook. LDAP Authentication. Find related records from search results.
  • Advanced OpenSales (AOS) delivers Quotations, Products, Contracts, Invoicing and PDF Templates modules to the Community Edition of SugarCRM and is compatible with SugarCRM 5.x and 6.x. Today’s AOS is the result of two years of continuous development and innovation. AOS is an Open Source project with all code released under Open Source Licenses. AOS has an active and engaged community of users and developers and in the best spirit of Open Source, enhancements to AOS are often defined and contributed by community members.

To vote, go to http://micropoll.com/t/KEvJaZB3sn. Thanks for participating, and good luck to all the projects! Voting will be open until Friday, July 8th 2011 at 12:00am ET.

    I guess ECalendar  will be helpful for all Sugar users.

    Advanced Open Sales is really, really a great project. The forum is very helpful and very reactive. Best of All, it works with the Sugar Community Edition (the spirit of open source).
    I wish long life to this project.

    To John Mertic:
    I have noticed the strage thing. During only 20 minutes total votes has been increased in 300 votes (all in favor of the 3rd). Seems this poll very very unfair and is being cheated somehow.

    Maybe would be honest to remove all duplicated IPs from result db of this poll?

    SalesAgility to John Mertic:

    John, I too have noticed block voting with ECalendar rising about 80 votes in 20 minutes this morning and over 80 votes yesterday in a similarly short space of time. 

    Thanks

      80? It’s possible that it raised more then usually because we mailed and skyped our clients (a lots use our ecalendar for 1 year from old beta version) to vote for us. The same as you spammed your clients in much bigger amount (you asks their email address before allowing to download you product) 😉

      So I think removing same IPs addresses from poll db (i hope it gets stored there) will be the honest solution. Don’t you agree?

        We’re in Open Source together. I really do not want a fall out over something as trivial as this. We have a common purpose in writing extensions that improve SugarCRM. Personalising this or accusing us of spamming is not conducive to the common good.

        Something fishy has been going on on both sides. A huge uptick in your vote, twice in concentrated periods (from a very low base <20%) and suddenly Ecalendar had more than 50% of the vote … draw your own conclusion … unless all the users you skyped voted in the same concentrated 20 min period!!)

    I don’t like how this vote is going on.

    Advertising on one side (e.g. here: http://www.sugarcrm.com/forums/showthread.php?t=73220), bringing the competition into disrepute on the other … Do good projects need that? I don’t think so.

    Please: let the users vote without such influence. The title “project of the month” will be of no worth otherwise. Thanks.
