I was told this version had calculated fields.

Where are they?

How do I access them?

Will I be able to copy and paste the formula from SugarCRM?

Hi,

@Howard Calculated fields have been added to the Action section of workflow
@nowackim As this is a new feature on the 7.8 beta release currently there is no documentation. However this will be added :)

Hi Camo
Can you be a bit more specific. I've created a workflow and there was nothing there that looked like somewhere to enter a formula. perhaps you can walk me through how to find it.

I'm expecting a checkbox and popup, like SugarCRM.

hopefully enabling both Dependent AND Calculated fields

I'm hoping to be able to past my formulas from my instance of SugarCRM Professional, rather than create them all again.

Create workflow > select Module name e.g. Accounts > Click Add Action > Select the Action: Calculated Fields > select and complete the appropriate information

Here is a screen shot of a workflow with a calculated field, which can be found in the pre-release demo:
(I think that with a little manual it will be quite hard to understand how to create a calculated field, however it looks like a great new feature!!! :) )

@HowardJennings: if I were you I wouldn't use it (as recommended by Sales Agility) in a production environment.

It's only a few days or weeks from release!

For the time being I would use it for testing purposes and use the new features so that the implementation, once you get it for production, will be faster.

Ah. i've checked often for updates, but obviously not often enough. Updating now. I'll let you know the result.

I am just playing with it. I'm trying to assess whether I can emulate my current instance of SugarCRM, if I can I'll switch over.

My biggest concerns are stability and whether the customisations are doable.
We have many custom modules and calculated fields that pull data from different modules depending on what is input by the user.

So at the moment I'm just playing with fields and module builder.

Whilst typing this my update completed with this error message;
Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 67108864 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 196608 bytes) in /home/statesideapm1/public_html/crm/cache/modules/Contacts/Contactvardefs.php on line 1313

I have never successfully completed an upgrade of any SuiteCRM version.

What now?

I just tried and got this Error;

Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 67108864 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 196608 bytes) in /home/statesideapm1/public_html/crm/cache/modules/Contacts/Contactvardefs.php on line 1313

I've never managed to do a successful upgrade. I always end up deleting it and starting again.

How much memory do I need to run this?

In your php.ini set your values to those defined here: suitecrm.com/wiki/index.php/Installation#Upgrade_prerequisites
and restart your service(apache2)
And in Admin > System Settings > Maximum upload size set the value higher e.g. 30000000

Hi
thanks.
1. my instance is hosted on my Domain on GoDaddy. How do I restart my service?
2. I have searched my entire directory tree and cannot find a file called php.ini
3. I do not have this '\Zend\Core\etc\fastcgi.conf' anywhere in mon my server

Having said all that. Yesterday I couldn't load SuitCRM because of the update error. However today it loads and the version is showing as Version 7.8.0-rc
Sugar Version 6.5.24 (Build 509).

Right. I've got the update installed and working.

Anyone know what the syntax of the formulas is?

Has anyone worked out how to create one yet?
