In today’s world we like to have our information fast and one of the best ways to do that is to have shortcuts.  Most of us have shortcuts on our desktops, on our phones and even within our browser windows.  So why not have shortcuts while using SugarCRM?

So the question of the day is: What happens if you need to have more than one page open within SugarCRM? 

You are probably thinking that you will have to go back and forth on your current screen to gather the needed information.  However, that is not the case; this quick shortcut on SugarCRM will allow you to open a new tab with your new page information while maintaining your current page.  Let’s take a look at how this works and the time you will save with this SugarCRM shortcut.

This shortcut will work on all three of the major web browsers:

  • Google Chrome

  • Mozilla Firefox

  • Internet Explorer

How to open a new tab from your current SugarCRM screen:

  • Hover over the link or page from within SugarCRM that you would like to open in a new tab.

    • In this case, Target List is the new screen to be opened.

  • Next, press and hold the control (ctrl) button your keyboard.

  • While still holding the control button down, click the link or page you wish to open in a new tab.

    • For this example, you would hold the control key and click on the Target List option.

  • Once you have control-clicked the page or link you wish to open, the new page will open in a new tab.

This shortcut feature will work for any page or link within SugarCRM, saves time and allows for access to more than one SugarCRM page at a time.
