Monday, December 5, 2016 3:32 AM



With FocalScope-SugarCRM integration you can look up the associated SugarCRM contact for any FocalScope email. If an associated SugarCRM contact does not exist for the FocalScope email, then one can be created directly from the FocalScope interface without logging into SugarCRM.

Prerequisites

You can look up SugarCRM contact details form several locations in the FocalScope UI. The following are the five locations from which you can initiate a SugarCRM contact lookup from a FocalScope email.
