One of the many perks we offer to any add-on that lists on the SuiteCRM Store is an easy to use documentation platform. In fact, we use that same system for our own documentation. The markup language that is utilized is an enhanced, SuiteCRM Store version of Markdown Extra. Markdown is a lightweight markup language that is easy to read and write using just plain text. A parser then converts that into a slightly more beautiful HTML version.
What this means is that it makes it really easy for developers to create good looking, easy to read documentation for their add-ons. Using our version of Markdown it is easy to create lists, format text, embed images, or add headers.
For more complex formatting, inserting straight html is always an option. This makes it easy to take YouTube’s embed code and putting it into a doc. It can also be used to create more advanced tables such as feature comparison grids.
In addition to these formatting options, pages can be easily reordered by drag and drop.
Adding documentation this way will make it easier for customers to find your add-ons, build trust in your product and brand, and have their questions answered quickly which all leads to more potential users.
Configure specific fields from specific modules and set formats like character limit, numeric, or alphanumeric and more for certain fields using Format Builder.
Find and Replace
The Find and Replace extension enables you to find a specific word and replace it with a different word all from the list view. Run the replace against one record or as many as you would like. No longer do you need to slowly go from record to record to make wholesale changes.
Custom Validation Message
Create your own custom validation messages for SuiteCRM. For each field, configure the validation message shown on the edit view page when a field does not pass the validation requirements.
