SugarCRM Pipeline Reporting

  • Getting Started with Pipeline Reporting
    • For a time period such as last week, last month, last quarter, sales organizations report on:
    • Each of these are subdivided by product, sales team, territory, geography, etc.
  • Pipeline Entries Report, Key Selection Criteria: Opportunity Created On Date

SugarCRM Open Questions & Answers

  1. Where can we find the drill down plug-in?
    Standard Sugar does not have this drill down capability, it just has the visual depiction of the chart.  At W-Systems we created a custom module for Sugar where we do drill-down.  It is available on our blog, Dashboard Drilldown Enhancement for SugarCRM 7.
     
  2. Can you quickly go over how to add the dashboard again?
    If you go to the Sugar Cube in the top-right and click “Create Dashboard” then you can name it and give it whatever name you would like.  From there you can add rows and then choose which dashlets you would like to add.
