PHP Question

Set the default value for a module field in SugarCRM

I have a module named

Cases
in my
SugarCRM
environment which has several fields like
name
,
id
,
account_name
,
date_created
,
description
and so on, and one custom field named
custom_account_number
.

I want to set its value to the one of the
account_name
field, how can I do that using a custom php script in custom folder?

Answer

If you are using Sugar 7.2 , then it is simple,

1. Go to Admin->Studio->Modulename->fields->Select custom field.
2. check Calculated Value then click on Edit Formula .
3. From Fields select your name field.
4. Then Deploy it.

Now go to your module and save your name it will appear on your custom field also.

I did not work on Community Edition But i can give you an idea that , you have to write a logic hook after save , in that hook you can write logic to copy Name to your custom field.
