Adding a User Task Subpanel

A question was recently asked on the SugarCRM forums on how to add a subpanel to a User detail view that shows all assigned Tasks for the user ( It’s actually a pretty simple process, although it requires custom code.

1. Create custom/Extension/modules/Users/Ext/Vardefs/TasksVardefs.php (actual file name irrelevant)

2. Create custom/Extension/modules/Users/Ext/Language/en_us.Tasks.php (change file name as needed for your language)

3. Create custom/Extension/modules/Users/Ext/Layoutdefs/TasksLayoutdefs.php (actual file name irrelevant)

4. Quick Repair and Rebuild
5. Rebuild Relationships

Then you should see something like:

User Task Subpanel

User Task Subpanel


I make high quality solutions at an alarming rate.

    Do you know if this technique will work for the employees module as well?

      In theory it should. The employees model points to the users table. May need to change some of the layout/vardefs module from Users to Employees.
