Notifications on Screen - Assigned Record


Top right hand side has “Notifications”

I notice this works with Meeting & Call reminders?

Is there anyway to add newly assigned records?

So for example I reassign an account, opportunity or contact etc it appears as a notification on the new assigned user

Maybe this can help

Please post back your solution once you work it out… :slight_smile:

For Desktop Notifications as in those that display directly on your desktop through your web browser
you do something like{title: 'test', options: {body: 'lorem ipsum'}})

on the client.

for desktop notifications as in those that display in the top bar of the suitecrm UI you do something like

$alert = BeanFactory::newBean('Alerts');
$alert->name = "Record Assigned";
$alert->description = "{$bean->module_name} assigned to you {$bean->name}";
$alert->assigned_user_id = $bean->assigned_user_id;
$alert->is_read = 0 ;
$alert->type = "info" ;
$alert->target_module = $bean->module_name;
$alert->url_redirect = "index.php?action=ajaxui#ajaxUILoc=";
$alert->url_redirect .= urlencode("index.php?module={$this->record->module_name}&action=DetailView&record={$this->record->id}");

on the server *

  • note that this type of notification uses the original module name (if it is targeting a module with an overwritten name) in it’s title. I’ll post an update when I find out how to get around that

To make Alerts show an overwritten module name instead of an original module name, you will need to edit 2 files.





into the custom directory

then make these changes…
in view.default.php add:

        $moduleNames = array_intersect(
          array_column($this->view_object_map['Results'], 'target_module'),
        $moduleNames = array_map(function($i) { return translate('LBL_MODULE_NAME', $i); }, $moduleNames);
        $this->ss->assign('moduleNames', $moduleNames);

to the display function before the echo

Then in the smarty template add


in the foreach statement on line 3

and replace




in the smarty template on line 12

played around with the client side desktop notifications a little more and I’ve come up with a complete example{
  title: 'TITLE',
  options: {
    type: 'info',
    url_redirect: '',
    target_module: 'Call', body: 'lorem ipsum',
    icon: 'https://blahblah.jpg'

so the target_module property is used to get back an icon to use.
The client side script takes in the plural spelling without the s and add’s the s when it is running so modules that use irregular plurals are not compatible with this property.

you can also decide to not use the target_module property and specify the url directly in the icon property.
if you specify both icon will be overridden
