Optimizing Sugar: Tuning Tips for Scale

Sugar User Group Q&A

Can Login Redirect be configured per person or is it system-wide?

Currently, Login Redirect’s configuration is system-wide. We are, however, looking into updating it to be configured per user.

Can the Sticky Column settings be set system-wide and pushed out to other users?

Absolutely. You can push your saved settings to any Sugar user in your instance.

Are the buttons on Drilldown Dashlets out-of-the-box with Sugar or is that a W-Systems customization?

The buttons included in the dashlets are included with our Drilldown Dashlet customization.

For Custom Buttons, is there a limit to the number of buttons?

Yes, you can place up to six buttons in the header bar.

Can Custom Buttons be used in places other than the header?

Custom buttons work like any other Sugar field, so you can add them anywhere you want to in the Record or List Views of a module.

Can you use Kanban View on any module?

You can expand Kanban View to any module in Sugar. Internally, we use it in Cases, Tasks, and Opportunities.
