Vtiger Open Source 6.0 Beta Released

PLEASE NOTE: THIS BETA IS FOR TESTING PURPOSES ONLY. Now that the disclaimer is out of the way, we’re thrilled to announce that the Vtiger 6.0 beta is ready for download. Again, for good measure, please don’t deploy this in a production environment – a vetted release candidate that supports migration from 5.4 will be rolled out shortly for that very purpose. While we’re mostly done with our internal tests, we need your help to test Vtiger 6.0 in as many environments as possible. If you’re interested in giving it a try, please download it from the link below, and for any feedback send us an email at [email protected], or for bugs log them at trac.vtiger.com. We appreciate your patience and look forward to bringing you release candidate of Vtiger 6.0 soon! Vtiger 6.0 BetaInstallation Files | Installation Manual | Developer Manual

Hello,

Can we can a clearly defined list of what WILL BE INCLUDED in the Open Source… as well as what CAN BE INCLUDED at a price….

What I am getting at…..If we want to use the Open Source version, will we be able to have the exact same features and functionality as the On Demand IF WE PAID the extra costs for it?

I personally need to know this, as I tested the beta that was released on SVN (13880), and the mail manager had been removed.

It would also be VERY helpful to know timelines of when the Open Source will have the ability (if at an extra cost) as the On Demand…

Personally, if i can’t get firm answers on this, I can’t wait for vTiger…I have to go somewhere else, my business can’t wait, and for US, the On Demand simply is not feasible

E mail module not present. Like vtiger 5.4

First, I appreciate the efforts. The UI is SO much better than the previous version and in the upper ranks among other products out there. That being said, this is riddled with bugs. The cron process doesn’t work at all. Without the mail process, you might as well not bother using it. This impacts workflow, tickets, contacts and company linking to email… so just about everything. In cron, there are includes referring to bad locations, there continues to be mixed 5.4 and 6 code. Even the readme info refers to the older version. So those who try to self diagnose or even help bring your attention to these items have nothing to go on. To top it off, try finding the right place to post anything on vTiger6….or better yet, confirm something is a bug or is a known issue. You have a large user community anxious to see this product. I would think that would be a huge incentive to cleanup your source control, create a clear space where people can communicate bugs and get involved… thus helping you reach the finish line. Without this, the “beta” is useless. For me, this is probably the end. I have fooled… Read more »

There is one critical problem, though this is something which i have observed in every single release that vtiger has floated. the issue is with importing values esp. prices, opportunity cost, product pricing and other. whenever i import the same, Vtiger ensures that it instead of understanding decimal separator considers the entire set of number as one figure and further adds decimals.

I wish if your team could improve on it.

Where would you like us to report issues? You have a category in your forum “vtiger CRM 6 UI Designs” but that doesn’t seem like an appropriate place. There are a lot of little issues I’ve found. I think some of the main things people are talking about (like mail manager) are intentionally left out?

Hi Marco,

For any feedback send us an email at [email protected], or for bugs log them at TRAC.

Mail Manager will be available in our next update (RC).

Thanks.

I have just installed the beta version and see there are missing modules – in particular Mail Manager.

I see in the above post, this will be added again in the next release. Will we need to install vtiger 6 from scratch with the next release – just to include the mailmanager, or can we go ahead and customize our fields etc. in readiness for the next release?

Out of interest, when is the next RC due? I am just thinking maybe I should hold off but if it is too long into the future would like to make a head start on my customizations.

Looks brilliant from what I have seen of it so far!

I just want to know few things before we can consider moving to version 6.

– Will PBX manager be added (if later) ?
– When will Mail Manager be added?
– Third party AddOns that we bought from Marketplace, will those be supported, for e.g. PDF Maker?
– How soon do we anticipate the final release?

Thanks alot!

Cheers.

> Will PBX manager be added (if later) ?

PBX Manager will be added in 6.1 release. We need to work on a better integration than what is there in 5.4.

> When will Mail Manager be added?

Mail Manager will be added 6.0 RC

> Third party AddOns that we bought from Marketplace, will those be supported, for e.g. PDF Maker?

Add Ons will need to be updated to work in Vtiger 6. PDF Maker developer plans to post updated plugins for Vtiger 6. We are providing developer guide to help developers port existing plugins to Vtiger6.

> How soon do we anticipate the final release?

We want to release it by Sep / Oct

Good questions by the other Mo. Can you kindly address them – they really impact the movement to version 6.
You guys are doing a great job and we support all your efforts, so don’t keep us in the dark.

Also when do you anticipate mobile friendly version. Is it not the end of the world if we have to wait a few months.

Best Regards,

We are focusing on the native apps to provide better experience for mobile users (iphone, android apps are available, and iPad app is coming shortly). We do plan to provide a more responsive web UI in a future update, but we don’t have a timeframe yet.

I am a power mobile user, navigation, setting up appointments, logging appointments, making prospecting calls, setting up tasks, updating scheduled calls, logging outbound call results from a popup when I end the call… the absolute best mobile experience is http://www.upvise.com very cleans, intuitive and intergrated in to the phone os. No I don’t work for them but I have tried all of them and upvise is the only one caused to “goto” naturally. This would be a great partnership or model.

Is it me or are the following SETTINGS missing in v6?

– Templates, specifically the ability to add/modify email templates
– Modules, specifically the ability to flag a custom field as Required/Mandatory

Hello,

I asked a range of questions above an NO ONE has answered them….can someone from vtiger please answer?

Also, there are threads where you’d guys stated an end of June early July release of stable 6.0. I fully understand that it’s hard to e precise, but from above you are saying sept/oct…. This is pushing out a few months. All we care about s to know a tine that it can e finished, not you telling us what you think we want to hear. Most people here are like me, where we have a business to run, and we can’t keep putting of our decision, and we can’t keep telling our clients 1 more month every new month.

I desperately need the answers to my questions above…..there s no benefit to making me wait to find out you won’t be offering wat I/we need…

Please answer….

Hi,

I noticed that there is a sync gmail contacts feature in the 6 beta version but there is no syncing for google calendar. I also took a look at the On Demand version but it seems to me that this feature is not avilable.
Am I missing something? or that feature just wasn’t part of version 6? will it be available in a future version?

Thanks Vtiger Team!

“PLEASE NOTE: THIS BETA IS FOR TESTING PURPOSES ONLY.”

“please don’t deploy this in a production environment ”

Here I thing which I could not understand that Vtiger’s On Demand version is Running V6 Beta on production enviornment then why Vtiger is giving above warnings.

What is your planning VTiger Guys ? This means that vtiger production enviornment is ready to use but you are not currently making it available to open-source users !!! why u are making delay .. I request you to clear the picture..

I 100% agree with @JOHN that there should be a clearly defined list of what WILL BE INCLUDED in the Open Source… as well as what CAN BE INCLUDED at a price….

On Demand version is “vTiger CRM – 6.0 – 5.10.20” while open source download is “vTiger CRM 6.0.0Beta”

The Beta version have a few bugs I find.

Thanks for reply Dear !!!

But My Question is that why You are not releasing the same thing which you are using On Demand Version .. Lots of people are waiting

Sreenivas
Guest
Sreenivas

In On Demand, we also have the old UI, for those who want to use the features that are still not implemented in new UI of Vtiger 6. i.e.,On Demand users can switch between 5.4 and 6.0 if they need.

Vtiger 6 open source will not include Vtiger 5.4 UI. We will release Vtiger 6 only when all the key features are in there.

I see that if you apply a list filter to leads or contacts in the campaing that this does not changes the fields order. We would really need to be able to change te field order of the leads and contacts in the campaign.

I’ve waited weeks and months for answers (see above)

I can’t wait any longer….at least answer some dam questions for your customers.

Not that you will care, but if you can’t give clear answers to my questions from above, then I am taking my business and all of my clients business somewhere else, probably to sugarcrm, they at least have good integrations with soft wares like xero, zapier, onesaas, and google apps!

You guys are going to loose a lot of faith and business with the weird stuff you are doing at the moment!

Not happy!

Elton
Guest

John, with all due respect, vTiger 6 is an open source product that relies on the community to test and use etc before the final release is made available.
I, like you am so tired of waiting but having said that it is only fair to state that vTiger will only release a version that is as bug free as possible.

If they release a version just so you can have your impatience (or mine for that matter!) satisfied then they will not only be dealing with one (or two) frustrated people but with many more including you and me!

So lets give the guys a chance to do this properly rather than threatening you’ll take your business elsewhere. After all you’re NOT paying for it!!

Elton, I dont think youve read my messages correctly mate…I simply want ‘answers to questions’. With that said, I have been in communication with vTiger on forums, support, and phone, and I have been told that the stabe version of vTiger 6 will be ready by the END OF THE MONTH (this has been said for the last 4 months). vTiger have been very aloof about answering any questions. Now what I can tell people who are reading this is what I was told yesterday. -the Community Edition stable release 6 will be out at the end of September! -They intend to release updates every 6 months or so -The community edition will always be 6 months to 1 year behind the On Demand -It will probably be 12 months before we have a community edition that is comparable to what version 6 On Demand is suppose to be. – As I had asked above (for people who have been reading)…..If we choose to pay for the extras, apparently the community edition can have all the same features as the On Demand (IF WE CHOOSE TO PAY FOR THE EXTRAS). The Community Edition WILL NOT have the same features as… Read more »

John,

We are working on integrations. Paypal, Authorize.net, Quickbooks, Exchange are already available for On Demand customers. Open source customers get Google integration for free.

Magento, Prestashop & more integrations are in On Demand pipeline for the next few months.

As far as making community version the same as On Demand, we don’t find that quite practical. Our goal is to build the best CRM, while we continue to deliver the best open source CRM.

Marco
Guest

Or you could flip it around. vTiger: Make the community edition even leaner, and charge for more of the apps, or charge more for each app. I havent seen what prices will be like but if its your typical $20,50 or whatnot per app, if you’re running a business then you can afford that.

You guys deserve to make money and the more you make the better you will be able to support both on demand and community editions.

If I were going to ask for something, it would be the opportunity to pay a bit more to get timely releases. That’s one thing you guys are bad at, is promising delivery “next month” for four months:)

SteveW
Guest

Why doesn’t vtiger release a paid version of the community edition for those that want the same as the on demand – both in terms of the version and whats included. I am sure a lot of people would be prepared to pay for this.

I know its open source, and that we kinda help the development process by testing and feedback, but it might make them more inclined to support us if we at least contributed in terms of cost.

The forums for vTiger are pretty dismal so unless you have a little knowledge of development then its not worth bothering with as once you hit problems or need to make modifications you are largely on your own as nobody responds.

I agree with John in that it would be nice to get answers to some of his questions, so how about it vTiger guys? What do you think about offering a paid version latest release for those who want it?

I have responded to many of the questions below.

Why is Vtiger6 available in On Demand when open source is not ready for production?

In On Demand, we also have the old UI, for those who want to use the features that are still not implemented in new UI of Vtiger 6. i.e.,On Demand users can switch between 5.4 and 6.0 if they need.

Vtiger 6 open source will not include Vtiger 5.4 UI. We will release Vtiger 6 only when all the key features are in there.

What Extensions will be available in Open Source?

Google Contacts and Calendar sync has been made available in Open Source.

Will Open Source have the exact same features and functionality as the On Demand IF WE PAID the extra costs for it

No. On Demand CRM is updated every month with new features and enhancements. Some features will remain exclusive to On Demand.

Can we purchase other Extensions that are exclusive in On Demand?

We haven’t decided on this yet.
