How does it works ?

Once the module is installed in SugarCRM, simply edit the module's custom metadata (editviewdefs.php) and add (or replace) the type with 'type' => 'multienum_checked'... that's all !

Any extra options available ?

Yes! You have total control of the display of your list as checkboxes, please refer to the Developer Guide

Compatible with all multienum fields

Will work on all SugarCRM modules, even custom modules. As long as the field is a "multienum" field.

It'll work great with Studio as well. Meaning that if your Sugar admins make a modification to the layout in Studio and do a Save & Deploy this customization will continue to work afterwards.

Compatibility information

SugarCRM v7 new modules structure is not compatible with this field type. We plan to release an upgraded version soon.
