Hint Version 4.0 is Live!

HINT logo

SugarCRM has released version 4.0 of Hint. Hint is a Relationship Intelligence service that scans the internet to provide detailed information about business contacts and companies. Data such as social media accounts, work information, and company details are visible for Hint users based on only names and email information. Users can also quickly import the enhanced data into the Sugar with a single click.


The 4.0 version of Hint adds the following new features:

  • New installations of Hint will present a quick in-app tour when users next log on.
  • Administrators can configure the Hint dashboard's visible fields and layouts for accounts, contacts, and leads.

More information on version 4.0, including details of fixes to address issues identified in prior releases, can be found in the Hint 4.0.0 Release Notes.

Customers hosted in the Sugar cloud will have their version of Hint upgraded to version 4.0 automatically. Installation and usage documentation for Hint can be found at the following links:
