As a dedicated user and promoter of Vtiger CRM, I understand the impact of a system that feels tailored to the unique needs and aesthetic of a business. Today, I want to impart a story close to my desk – the art of customizing record views in Vtiger CRM to resonate with the individual flair of our clients’ businesses. This post will take you through some of the Vtiger view customizations we’ve implemented to make the Vtiger views not just functionally apt but also visually appealing and conducive to users’ workflows.
Customizing for Clarity and Brand Alignment
Vtiger’s default record views are proficient in delivering the necessary information. However, they may fall short in visual appeal or functionality for certain clients who crave more. For instance, the need to showcase additional data points or to reflect the company’s color palette can be quite compelling. I share this understanding deeply; customization is key in making a CRM solution feel truly yours.
Tailoring Information Display
Our team has extensive experience in reshaping Opensource through Vtiger view customizations. Take the summary view of opportunities: it traditionally includes related widgets like documents, activities, comments, products, and contacts. These are valuable chunks of information indeed, yet their default placement might not align with every company’s process flow. By harnessing CSS, we’ve moved widgets around, resized key fields, discarded redundant widgets, and introduced entirely new ones like the progress bar. These changes, subtle yet powerful, can significantly enhance the user experience.
It isn’t just about where the information sits; it’s also about how it looks. As emphasized by Kruze, editing CSS goes beyond mere structural changes—it opens a door to aesthetic adjustments. Font changes, background color shifts… these aren’t just frivolous embellishments but fundamental aspects that bring a system closer to embodying a brand’s identity. And while these tweaks require a developer’s touch, our team at Boru stands ready to weave your brand narrative through the Vtiger interface.
Optimizing Related Lists
The top bar in record views is another facet where customization can streamline efficiency. By rearranging or removing related lists like quotes or sales orders, we curate the space to highlight what’s truly vital for our clients. This customization empowers users to focus on the relationships and data that drive their daily operations, removing clutter and aligning with their business logic.
Providing Condensed and Comprehensive Information
The story doesn’t end here. I witnessed a record transformation from a three-column to a two-column structure to accommodate an expanded comment and document sections. Moreover, we enriched the related contacts widget—usually displaying just basic contact information—with additional details like organization name and title through our coding prowess. These enhancements, though not doable through default settings, are part and parcel of our commitment to making Vtiger a salient and seamless extension of our clients’ operations.
Embarking on a journey of customization with Vtiger CRM can be more than just aesthetically pleasing—it streamlines workflows and compliment users’ preferences to craft a system that not only stands out visually but functions as a smooth extension of one’s business philosophy.
