SugarCRM has released version 2.6.0 if the Sugar Plug-in for Microsoft Outlook.

This latest release includes the following new features and enhancements:

  • Users have the option to decide if the plug-in should automatically create an account when the company name of a synced Outlook contact does not already exist in Sugar.
  • Users can now decide between adding all of an email’s Outlook categories to Sugar as tags or only syncing the Sugar category as a tag on the email record.
  • All archiving and email attachment options have been moved to new “Mail” tab in the configuration window.
  • Data Privacy enhancements: If a data erasure in Sugar includes the Last Name and Email Address fields, the plug-in will now apply a “Data Privacy” category to the Outlook contact record in addition to permanently disabling the sync for the corresponding Outlook contact.
  • Debug logging capability has been added to the installation package.
  • Many records may now be related at once via the “Relate” button when creating a new Sugar record (e.g. a new contact) from Outlook.
  • Users may now optionally select the email record’s teams when archiving an email from Outlook.

Sugar Plug-in for Microsoft Outlook 2.6.0 also addresses issues identified in prior releases of the Outlook Plug-in. More information on the new features and enhancements as well as the fixed bugs can be found in the MS Outlook Plug-in Release Notes 2.6.0.
