You may have heard that SugarCRM will be presenting a series of webinars on solution architecture for the Sugar platform, throughout this September and October.
Beginning on September 6th, Sugar University’s Solution Architect Webinar Series will present the following topics:
- Introduction to Solution Architecture for Sugar
- CRM Project Fundamentals
- The Sugar Platform
- Sugar Implementation
- Performance and Quality Assurance
Each webinar will be guided by a panel of experts from across SugarCRM, including some familiar faces from the Architecting Successful Projects panel at this year’s UnCon.
Thanks to everyone who attended the UnCon! It was a whirlwind for all of us but I think we have put on the best iteration of this event we have ever had.
In brief, it went so well that there is wide agreement across the company for a significantly expanded event for Sugar Developers at SugarCon next year. So we look forward to seeing you all again for SugarCon in September 2017.

Best in Class & Best in Show
Relaunched SugarCRM Support Site!
Have you had a chance to check out the new SugarCRM Support site? It is awesome. I am in there all the time looking up documentation so the new changes have really made my job easier. The new layout looks great but also organizes the content better and the search functionality has been improved. This means I can find the information I need that much faster.
On top of that, the new Support site includes a couple of recent additions that are welcome to Sugar newbies and those Sugar Developer veterans who have been around the block.
Based on Sugar Developer community feedback, we have an additional update about the CreateActionsView changes in Sugar 7.7.
CreateActions migration script added to Sugar 7.7 Upgrader
During Sugar 7.7 upgrade, the upgrader will identify existing create-actions view/layout customizations and automatically migrate them to create view/layout. This is a best effort migration that follows the two steps listed near bottom of this blog post.
If a custom create view/layout already exists, then create-actions changes will not be automatically migrated.
This will mitigate impact of this change for existing Sugar customers.
