User Interface (Legacy Modules)

Overview

The user interface in Sugar is essentially everything you see and can interact with in Sugar. Knowing what buttons allow you to do what actions and how to quickly add and edit information is critical to managing your customer information. This documentation is divided into related sections in order to cover in detail, interface options to perform specific tasks.

Legacy Modules

This documentation will cover the Legacy user interface which is carried over from Sugar 6. Below is a list of modules that use the Legacy user interface. Other modules use the updated Sidecar user interface which is described in detail in the User Interface documentation.

  • Calendar
  • Documents

Note: Custom modules that are created in Module Builder will utilize the Sidecar user interface. Custom modules installed to an instance prior to Sugar 7 that were not created in Module Builder will use the Legacy user interface upon upgrade to 7.x.

List View

Each module in Sugar contains a list view to search and display records in a table format. To access a module's list view, simply click the module tab (e.g. Documents) in the navigation bar at the top of Sugar.
ListView

The list view displays all records meeting the current search criteria and to which your user has access. By default, Sugar sorts records in descending order of their creation date. You can view the basic details of each record within the field columns or select the record name to view it in the detail view.

Please note that you will only be able to see records as allowed by your team membership, user access type, and assigned roles. For more information on teams and roles, please refer to the Team Management and Role Management documentation.

You have the option to change what fields are displayed in each module's list view by configuring your layout options in the Advanced Search. For more information on configuring your list view, please refer to the Layout Options section of the Search documentation. Users with administrator or developer access also have the ability to change what fields are visible in the list view via Admin > Studio. For more information on editing layouts, please refer to the Studio documentation.

The basic search is at the top of the list view for each module and offers a few, commonly used fields for a simplified search experience. 
basic-search78

From the Basic Search panel, you can also click "Advanced Search" to access additional search functionality as needed.

The following buttons and checkboxes are common across many Legacy modules' Basic Search panel and have the following functions:

  • Search : Click the Search button or press your Return/Enter key to perform the search.
  • Clear : Click the Clear button to clear all criteria from the searchable fields.
  • My Items : Select this box to return only records assigned to you.
  • My Favorites : Select this box to return only records you have marked as favorites.

When you run a search, Sugar will return records matching all (as opposed to any) of the fields and checkboxes for which you have given a value. For example, if you select "My Items" and enter a name or subject, Sugar will only return records with a matching name or subject that are assigned to you. Once the search is complete, the relevant results will populate in the list view below the search panel. To see all records to which you have access within the module, simply click "Clear" and then "Search" to perform a blank search with no filters. Please note that you will only be able to see records as allowed by your team membership, user access type, and assigned roles. For more information on teams and roles, please refer to the Team Management and Role Management documentation.

Administrators can configure the fields that appear on the Basic Search for each module via Admin > Studio. For more information on editing layouts, please refer to the Studio documentation.

Advanced Search offers a more in-depth search experience than Basic Search including additional fields, layout options, and saved search capability. From the Advanced Search panel, you can also click "Basic Search" for simplified searching.
UI Legacy AdvSearch

The following buttons, checkboxes, and dropdowns are common across many Legacy modules' Advanced Search and have the following functions:

  • Search : Click the Search button or press your Return/Enter key to perform the search.
  • Clear : Click the Clear button to clear all criteria from the searchable fields.
  • My Favorites : Enable this checkbox to return only records you have marked as favorites.
  • Layout Options : Use the expandable Layout Options section to configure your list view. For more information, please refer to the Layout Options section of the Search documentation.
  • Saved Searches : Save, recall, update, and delete searches that you use often. For more information, please refer to the Saved Search section of the Search documentation.

When you run a search, Sugar will return records matching all (as opposed to any) of the fields for which you have given a value. For example, if you select "My Favorites" and enter in a field to search, Sugar will only return records matching that field that you have marked as favorites. When searching by a multi-select or dropdown field (i.e. "Assigned to"), however, Sugar will return records matching any of these selections. Once the search completes, the relevant results will populate in the list view below the search panel. To see all records to which you have access within the module, simply click "Clear" and then "Search" to perform a blank search with no filters. Please note that you will only be able to see records as allowed by your team membership, user access type, and assigned roles. For more information on teams and roles, please refer to the Team Management and Role Management documentation.

Administrators can configure the fields that appear on the Advanced Search for each module via Admin > Studio. For more information on editing layouts, please refer to the Studio documentation.

Selecting Records

The list view in Sugar allows you to select a single record to view by clicking on the name or subject of the record to open it in the detail view. You can also select multiple records at once and perform certain actions on those records.

To select or deselect records in the Legacy modules list view, use the following methods:

  • Individual Selection : Mark the checkbox on the left of each record's row on the list view you wish to select.
    UI Legacy IndividualSelection
  • Checkbox Selection : To select or deselect multiple records from the list view, use the options in this checkbox dropdown menu.
    • Select This Page : Selects all records shown on the current page of list view results. You can also click the open checkbox to the left of the Checkbox Selection menu to select all records on the current page.
    • Select All : Selects all records in the current search results across all pages of list view results.
      • Note: When using "Select All" you can not deselect single records, but will have to use the Deselect All option.
    • Deselect All : Deselects all records that are currently selected.
    UI Legacy CheckboxSelection

When selecting records, you can page through all of the records and Sugar will remember which records are selected. Depending on your Sugar settings you may see the count of records being selected or you may see a plus sign (+) to refer to more records. Simply select the Deselect All option to remove all selected records regardless of how they were initially selected.

Mass Actions Menu

The Actions menu to the right of the checkbox dropdown allows you to perform various actions on the currently selected records. It allows you to perform actions such as Delete, Mass Update, and Export for one or more records. Please note that not all Legacy modules have these actions available. The sections below will cover the most common actions across the modules. For more information on actions available within a specific module, please refer to the list view section in the application guide pertaining to the specific module.
UI Legacy ListView MassActions

Delete

The list view in Sugar allows you to easily mass delete records. Please note that deleted records are not permanently removed from the database, but are marked as deleted in the system so that it no longer appears in Sugar. These records can be recovered by anyone with direct database access. Also, deleting records in Sugar will not delete the related records and will only remove the relationship, so you may wish to also delete any related records to avoid orphaned records.

The following steps cover deleting document records via the Documents list view as an example:

  1. Navigate to the Documents list view by clicking on the Documents module tab.
  2. Use the Basic or Advanced Search to find the document records you wish to delete.
  3. Select the desired document record(s) individually or use the checkbox dropdown's options.
  4. Choose "Delete" from the Actions menu.
    listview-delete78
  5. A pop-up message will display asking for confirmation. Click "Ok" to proceed.

Due to PHP memory limitations on the server, there may be occasions when the application times out while deleting a large number of records. If you encounter an error when performing this action, we recommend selecting the records in smaller batches.

Mass Update

Mass Updating allows users to make the same change to multiple records at one time from the list view. Users with administrator- or developer-level access can control which fields are available during mass updates via Admin > Studio. Currently, only fields with the data type of date, datetime, dropdown, multiselect, and radio may be altered during a mass update. For more information on configuring the mass update options, please refer to the Studio documentation. Due to the PHP memory limitations on the server, there may be occasions when the application times out while mass updating a large number of records. If you encounter an error when performing this action, we recommend selecting the records in smaller batches.

Please note that your ability to mass update may be restricted by a role. For more information on roles, please refer to the Role Management documentation. Check with your system administrator if you do not see the Mass Update option.

Use the following steps to mass update records from the list view:

  1. Navigate to the list view by clicking the module tab in the navigation bar.
  2. Use the list view's Basic or Advanced Search to identify records you wish to modify.
  3. Select the desired records individually or using the checkbox dropdown's options.
  4. Choose "Mass Update" from the Actions menu.
    UI Legacy ListView MassUpdate
  5. Scroll to the Mass Update panel and set values for the fields you wish to alter.
    Note: For the Teams field, use "Replace" to remove existing team assignments before adding those specified here. Use "Add" to add the teams specified here to any existing team assignments.
    UI Legacy ListView MassUpdate Panel
  6. Click "Update" to save the changes to all of the currently selected records.

Favorite Designation

Each Sugar user has the option to designate their own favorite records within modules that are important or will be viewed often so that they can easily be accessed via search or from the module tab. Once records are marked as favorites, use the My Favorites checkbox in the Basic or Advanced Search to retrieve your favorites or select from your most recent favorites directly from the module tab.

Use the following steps to mark records as favorites via the list view:

  1. Navigate to the list view by clicking the module tab in the navigation bar.
  2. Use the Basic or Advanced Search to find the records you wish to mark as favorites.
  3. Mark the star icon on the left of each desired record's row.
  4. To remove the record as a favorite, click the star again to revert it to white.
    UI Legacy ListView Favorites

Edit Option

Records may be edited at any time to update or add information to the record. You can make changes to existing records by clicking the Pencil icon to the left of each record's name or subject in the list view. This will open up the records edit view layout to update the necessary fields and you can click "Save" to preserve the changes made.

Use the following steps to quick edit records via the list view:

  1. Navigate to the list view by clicking the module tab in the navigation bar.
  2. Use the Basic or Advanced Search to find the records you wish to edit.

Administrators in Sugar may configure both the edit view and quick create via Admin > Studio. For more information on configuring layouts, please refer to the Studio documentation.

Column Sorting

List view provides the ability to sort all of the current search results by a field column in either ascending or descending order. To sort by a field or switch the sort direction, simply click the column header noting that the fields which allow sorting will have a pair of arrows. You can click the column header again to reverse the sort order. Please note that the list view may be sorted by only one column at a time. You can also set a default order-by column using the layout options in Advanced Search. For more information on setting a default column sort, please refer to the Layout Options section of the Search documentation.
UI Legacy ListView ColumnSort

Pagination

List view displays the current search results broken into pages that you can scroll through rather than displaying potentially thousands of rows at once. To the right just below the search panel, you can see which records of the total results set are currently being displayed. The two single-arrow Next and Previous buttons can be used to scroll through the records page-by-page. The two double-arrow First Page and Last Page buttons allow you to skip to the beginning or the end of your current results.

By default, Sugar displays 20 records per list view page, but administrators can change the number of records displayed via Admin > System Settings. For more information on changing the number of displayed records, please refer to the System documentation.
UI Legacy ListView Pagination

More Information

Additional details for each record can be viewed by clicking the "i" icon to the far right of each list view row. This provides users a quick view of additional information in addition to what appears in the display column fields. The resulting pop-up window will show information such as Description, etc. by default. The list of fields appearing here may only be configured through a code-level customization.
UI Legacy ListView MoreInfo

Detail View

The module's detail view displays thorough information including all fields which are grouped by default into the Overview and Other panels. You can also view a record's related records (Activities, Documents, Contacts, etc.), which appear in subpanels beneath the records fields.

Please note that you will only be able to view a record according to your team membership, user type, and role restrictions. For more information on teams and roles, please refer to the Team Management and Role Management documentation. Users with administrator or developer access have the ability to change the detail view by configuring the layout via Admin > Studio.

Users can simply click the link in the email to access the record in Sugar. Please note that the user must be logged into Sugar in order to access the record. Users will only be able to view the shared record as allowed by their team membership, user access type, and assigned roles. For more information on teams and roles, please refer to the Team Management and Role Management documentation.

Copy

You can create a new record by duplicating an existing record from the detail view. The Copy option is useful if the record you are creating has similar information to an existing record. Please note that any related record(s) to the original record will not be copied to the newly created record.
Use the following steps to create a record by duplicating an existing record:

  1. Navigate to a record's detail view.
  2. Click the Actions menu and select "Copy".
    UI DetailView Copy
  3. The displayed edit view is pre-populated with the original records values. Update the necessary fields, then click "Save".
    UI DetailView Copy Save

Delete

Users have the ability to delete records that are invalid or should no longer appear in their organization's Sugar instance via the module's detail view. Deleting via the detail view allows you to delete a single record in the module. Please note that deleting records will not delete the related records and will only remove the relationship, so you may wish to also delete any related records to avoid orphaned records.

Please note that your ability to delete records in Sugar may be restricted by a role. For more information on roles, please refer to the Role Management documentation. Check with your system administrator if you do not see the Delete options.

The following steps cover deleting a document record from the Documents detail view as an example:

    UI Legacy DetailView Delete
  3. A pop-up message will display asking for confirmation. Click "Ok" to proceed.

View Audit Log

Changes made to each record are tracked over time, and for most modules, users are able to view the history of changes via the audit log in each record's detail view. To view the audit log, navigate to a record's detail view (e.g. campaigns) and select "View Audit Log" from the Actions menu. Please note that only fields marked as "Audit" in Admin > Studio will be displayed in the audit log. For more information on designating a field for audit, please refer to the Studio documentation.
UI DetailView ViewChangeLog

Field Panels

Field panels are what hold the fields for a record in the detail view. Most modules come with two panels defined by default: Overview and Other. Please note that the field panels can be collapsed to hide unnecessary data.
UI DetailView Panels

Users with administrator or developer access have the ability to change the fields (e.g. Name, Assigned User, etc.) and labels inside the field panels as well as move, create, and edit existing field panels via Admin > Studio to provide visibility to the most important fields. Field panels can also be collapsed by default via Admin > Studio. For more information on modifying field panels, please refer to the Studio documentation.

Subpanels

Beneath the module record's fields are subpanels containing related records from various modules (e.g. Accounts, Contacts). The subpanels that appear in a record's detail view is based on the relationships defined for the current module as well as the administrative settings on which subpanels are set to display in Sugar. You can expand and collapse subpanels as well as rearrange them per your viewing preference. For more information on changing the display of subpanels, please refer to the Layout section of this documentation. You can create related records as well as relate an existing record directly from the subpanel. Please note that the actions available in the Actions menu can vary between certain subpanels.

Users with administrator or developer access have the ability to change the fields (e.g. Status, Subject) and labels of each subpanel by configuring the layout via Admin > Studio to provide visibility to the most important fields. For more information on modifying subpanels, please refer to the Studio documentation.

Activities and History

The Activities and History subpanels are special subpanels in Sugar that show data from multiple modules based on certain criteria. For example, a meeting with a status of "Planned" will appear in the Activities subpanel. Once the meeting is changed to a status of "Held", it will move from the Activities subpanel to the History subpanel. All related note and email records will appear in the History subpanel as there are no filters on those modules, but notes and emails will never display in the Activities subpanel. If you customize the status field for any of the modules, the records that hold a custom status will appear in the Activities subpanel. But code level customizations would be required to have a new status show in the History subpanels.
Please refer to this chart for the criteria both subpanels use to query data:

Subpanel Module Status Field Filter

Activities

Meetings Does not Equal "Held"
Does not Equal "Not Held"
Tasks Does not Equal "Completed"
Does not Equal "Deferred"
Calls Does not Equal "Held"
Does not Equal "Not Held"
History Meetings Equals "Held"
Equals "Not Held"
Tasks Equals "Completed"
Equals "Deferred"
Calls Equals "Held"
Equals "Not Held"
Emails N/A
Notes N/A

Since the Activities and History subpanels contain records from many different modules, there are some differences in the actions and record display than in normal subpanels. Each record in both subpanels will have an icon to the far left indicating which module the record originates from. For example, if the record is a call, then the Telephone icon will display to the left of the subject.
UI DetailView SubPanels ActivitiesSubpanel

Normal subpanels typically have a Create and Select option to create or link related records. The Activities and History subpanels have multiple actions due to the fact that there are multiple modules involved.
You have the following actions available from the Activities subpanel:

  • Create Task : Creates a new task record related to the record currently being viewed.
  • Schedule Meeting : Creates a new meeting record related to the record currently being viewed.
  • Log Call : Creates a new call record related to the record currently being viewed.
  • Compose Email : Launches the Compose Email popup window to send an email.
    Note: The email will automatically be related to the current record you are viewing.

Note: When creating a Task, Meeting, or Call from the Activities subpanel, you have the ability to set the Status field to "Held" or "Completed" which will place it in the History subpanel.

Using the TinyMCE Text Editor

TinyMCE is a third-party WYSIWYG tool that allows users to provide HTML formatting in specific sections in Sugar without requiring any HTML knowledge. TinyMCE is available when composing email or email templates from the Emails module or creating workflow email templates.
Email_ToolSection

The following are some descriptions of the more commonly used features in TinyMCE:

  • Text Formatting : Use the folllowing buttons to format text to be bold, italics, underlined, or stricken through.
    Text_Formatting
  • Alignment : Use the following buttons to change the alignment of the text to be left, center, right, or justified.
    Alignment
  • Fonts : Use the following dropdowns to select special section formatting, fonts, and sizes.
    Fonts
  • Layout Formatting : Use the following buttons to utilize bullet list, ordered lists, and tables.
    Layout_Formatting
  • Links and Images : Use the following buttons to create a link, remove a current link, or add an image.
    LinksAndImages
  • Advanced HTML : Click the HTML button to view your content in full HTML code. You may add and change the HTML to further refine your content.
    Not all HTML is allowed to be saved in Sugar. The following are some examples of HTML that will be removed when saved:
    • Anything outside of the <body></body> tags.
    • Any <style></style> tags.
    • Any <script></script> tags.
    • Any <form></form> tags.
    • Any <input> tags.
    Note: Inline CSS can be added to some elements (e.g. <p>, <pre>, and <span>), but due to different email clients rendering HTML email in unexpected ways, inline CSS is not allowed on some elements (e.g. <div>, <img>, and <table>).
    Advanced_HTML

Using Team-Based Permissions

In Sugar, teams are typically used to control which groups of users can access a record. Using team-based permissions, however, an administrator may choose to extend the purpose of teams to control who can perform certain operations on the record (e.g. edit, delete, etc.). When enabled, regular users can use a record's Teams field to grant access such as viewing, editing, exporting, importing, and deleting permission to specific users or user groups.

An administrator must first enable team-based permissions and configure roles and users for this feature. For more information, please refer to the Role Management documentation. Once the roles are applied to users, any user who can edit the Teams field in the enabled module can grant extra access to teams of users. If you are not an administrator and you are not sure if team-based permissions are enabled for a legacy module, simply navigate to a record view, click "Edit", and look for a checkbox labeled "Selected" next to the Teams field:
legacy-teams

Note: Sidecar modules also support team-based permissions but use a lock button next to the Teams field to indicate whether or not the team's members have extra access to the record.

To grant extra access to a record for all members of a team who have role permission, check the Selected checkbox next to the team's name. This will enable additional permissions according to the guidelines in the table below. To control an individual user's access to a record, add that user's private team to the record's Teams field and then enable or disable additional permissions according to the guidelines in the table below. Please note that extra access will only be granted to users who have a role restricting their access to "Owner and Selected Teams" as described in the Role Management documentation.

Team Setting Checkbox Description
Additional Permissions Enabled selected Members of this team have extra access to this record or fields within the record as controlled by their roles
Additional Permissions Disabled not selected Members of this team have no additional team-based permissions as controlled by their roles

In the following example, members of team East have standard team access to the record (at a minimum, view permission), while Jim and members of team West have view permission plus extra access to do things such as working with restricted fields, and editing, deleting, and exporting the record. Note that a user can be an explicit or implicit member of a selected team, and if they are part of both a selected team and a non-selected team for a record, they will be granted the extra access.
