An Easter egg in Sugar 7.6

In Sugar 7.6, we added an awesome little undocumented feature that we're calling Sweet Spot.

Try the matching shortcut key sequence below within a Sugar 7.6 window.

Mac OS Xcmd+shift+space

Sweet Spot will appear.

Then start typing!

All you Sugar Developers and Sugar Administrators will like the Actions feature which allows you to quickly run many actions from anywhere in the application.  Administrators additionally get easy access to many administrative functions through Sweet Spot.

There are actually several more features that we haven't shown here.  But we will leave the rest for you guys to discover on your own!

Plans for this feature are still evolving but we think it will ultimately grow into an exciting addition to the Sugar user experience.  Try it out today in any Sugar 7.6 instance!

    Ahh, I see what my issue is:  I did not have Global Search indexing the modules in question.  This is resolved now.  Thanks for verifying that it should be able to pick up these modules!

    Really?  I just tried on my local instance and my custom module actions showed up in the Sweetspot config.  Maybe try QRR or clearing your browser cache?  If that doesn't work, I'll reach out to dev team to see if they have thoughts.

    Not bad, but none of my custom modules are available in the Sweetspot Config to add tags/triggers.  How can I fix this?

    Great suggestion, Kortnee! There are many other keyboard shortcuts already available. For example, pressing 'c' while on a record view will bring up the Quick Create menu. From there you can use the down arrow to select create case, call, meeting, etc and have it automatically related to the record you are on. To see the available documented keyboard shortcuts for use on the layout you are on, press '?' key or simply click on the 'Shortcuts' button in the lower right-hand side of the footer.

    Easter has come early! this is an awesome feature. One feature request if possible :)

    When your on a record and you pull up the sweet spot when you type "Log Call" instead of just a drawer unlinked, it would be amazing to have it already linked to the record your on.

    I can just imagine using the sweet spot to pull up a record by name, using it again without moving my hands to create a case, call, meeting, task etc! :) Even without this it's amazing feature.

    OH and any chance you can add "Home" to take us back to the home dashboards (or type dashboard name like "My Dashboard", "KPI Dashboard") #demanding
