Why? Besides being a pain to use for everyone the old store just didn’t provide a good user experience. Moving to SugarOutfitters allows me to provide you with better support and better documentation. This will free me up to continue to support and grow SecuritySuite.
I created SugarOutfitters along with Chad Hutchins to make it easy to “Find quality, proven solutions to enhance your SugarCRM© experience.” We feel what is there now is a good first step to a larger vision of improving that experience. You can get more info from the SugarOutfitters blog. I’d love to hear your feedback on it.
A big thank you is owed to all of you who have used and continue to use SecuritySuite. It has become the most popular teams solution for SugarCRM CE. However, I’m not satisfied with that. There is more that can be added to the suite to make it even more useful to you. Field level access and the ability to filter the list view by groups are two that come to mind. Custom group layouts works for most people who need to hide certain layouts but it doesn’t cover 100% of the cases. If you have some ideas that you’d love to see included make sure to add them as Feature Requests.
To continue its growth and to remove the confusion of having 2 different pricing options only a Yearly Subscription will be offered going forward. It is very important to me that you get a great value for the price and I believe the new price point achieves that while balancing the need to put food on my family’s table (not the same as Latrell Sprewell). I want to give you the best price possible while being able to ensure that this module will be around for a long, long time. With how often the SugarCRM code base changes it is quite time consuming to maintain as there are now 431 files in SecuritySuite. This is a necessity to ensure that your data is locked down and secure.
If you have bought a Yearly Subscription from the old store within the past year your purchase will be honored through the end of its term. You can login and go to your account here to view your subscription order and download all new versions that are released.
