Free Sugar Theme, Training, and More!

Amanda Anderson | Jan 3, 2013

Epicom kicks off the new year with a little holiday spirit.

Yesterday was my first day back at the office in 2013. Our tree is still up and there are leftover candy canes and holiday cookies in the breakroom. There’s no sign that the holidays are over here at Epicom, so what better time, than now, to give away a few gifts to the Sugar community for FREE.

1) Google Theme for SugarCRM:
Licensed versions of SugarCRM come preloaded with different themes or skins to choose from. Users can change the colors and design of their individual Sugar account by switching the theme style in the user’s settings. One of Epicom’s engineers, Danny Mulvihill, built a Google theme for SugarCRM as one of his side projects. The styling mimics the look and feel of Google’s navigation menu, search bar, buttons, and color scheme.


Note (10/2/13): We have removed the link to github where the code was posted. There was a major issue with the code and our developer has taken it down temporarily. 

Update(1/8/2014): The theme was built by one of our engineers as a side project. There was a lot of interest so we posted the code for free online for others to expand on. We took the theme down a few months ago due to a large number of issues with the code. We intended to clean it up and repost. Since Sugar 7 has a new interface, the theme is no longer useful for licensed versions and there are several other more developed themes for CE already. It’s difficult for us to work on a free product and we don’t enforce what our engineers work on for their fun side project and we no longer have any intention on reposting the code or putting additional effort into it.  Sorry for the inconvenience.

2) SugarCRM Training Videos:
Our video library includes short SugarCRM training videos hosted by Epicom engineers. Topics include reporting, email campaigns, sales forecasting, admin setup, and more!

3) Online SugarCRM User Group:
A webcast series for Sugar users to receive free Sugar training, learn CRM best practices, and share implementation techniques. The next webcast is on January 29th and will cover Reporting in SugarCRM.

To register for the next webcast, CLICK HERE.

4) SugarCRM Code Base Search Engine:
Quickens and simplifies the process for developers who are searching for specific pieces of code in SugarCRM’s code base. Epicom’s search engine is free to the Sugar community and enables developers to run a quick search across many versions of Sugar simultaneously.
