This week Clemente Raposo, Lead Developer of SuiteCRM, takes you through how to implement global record actions in SuiteCRM 8.

Global record actions are really useful, they are actions that can be used across as many modules as you need. Understanding how to configure them, link them to the right button and keep them secure on both the front and back end are also very important.

Watch this weeks video to learn all about them and be sure to check below for the code example from the video to help you get started.

For those of you who are keen to get started right away, below you will find the code sample from the video.
