For many Sugar CE users, the Dashboard module was a nice feature that gave you a bit more space to add Dashlets than can normally fit on the Home page ( Pro, Corporate, Enterprise, and Ultimate Edition users don’t have this limitation, as they can add many pages under the Home page to house dashlets ). Theres been a few users wanting to know how to bring this functionality back into Sugar 6 and later. Fortunately, it’s very simple thanks to the instructions provided by forums poster jacklagunabeach. Here’s how to do it:
- Grab the source code from SugarCRM 5.5.4
- Add a file in the custom/Extension/application/Ext/Include/ directory named dashboardFrom554.php with the file contents show below. This will register the Dashboard module with the SugarCRM instance.
<?php $moduleList = 'Dashboard'; $beanList['Dashboard'] = 'Dashboard'; $beanFiles['Dashboard'] = 'modules/Dashboard/Dashboard.php';
- Run Admin > Repair > Quick Rebuild and Repair to enable the Dashboard module
- Go to Admin > Display Module Tabs and Subpanels and move the Dashboard module to the ‘Displayed Tabs’ column.
With that you will have the Dashboard module back available to use.
