SuiteCRM 8 compatible?

Hi, have a question. Can I upload the custom things that I do on the 7 version to the 8 version when it will be released?

It depends. You better try the Suite 8 online demo and check the URLs of the screens in you browser dev tools, network tab. If it’s going through “legacy” URLs, then it’s basically using the old engine and your custom stuff should all work.

For other screens going through the new engine (modules Accounts, Leads, etc) you need to check each customization. If it’s front-end you’ll likely have to redo it, unless it’s based on metadata files (vardefs, viewdefs etc).

New modules as seen in source code:

The above is my understanding of Suite8, I might be wrong and if anyone can correct me, I’d be thankful.
