This week Clemente Raposo, Lead Developer of SuiteCRM,  takes you through adding new Quick Charts to the SuiteCRM 8 sidebar.

Undoubtedly, Quick Charts are a really great way to get insights into key information fast.  They are typically based on the data in List View, working with the standard filters to drill into the data you need.  Otherwise, they can also work independently of the List View data.

Therefore, knowing where to configure Quick Charts and ensuring they are performant is highly important.  Watch this week’s video to learn all about adding them, and be sure to check below to get the code example to help you get started.

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