17 vtenext customization: advanced settings

Customisation features are very important because they guarantee the use of vtenext for a wide range of business processes. It is possible to design the data structure for the vtenext modules via easy-to-use web interfaces: for example, it will be you who will define the structure of your Leads, Contacts and Accounts archives or Trouble Ticket information.

The standard set-up of vtenext presents a wide range of modules that can be subsequently readapted to the needs of specific cases: you can add fields of any kind (text, number, percentage, etc.), compile drop-down menus with values decided by you, set conditions for a greater or lesser restrictive access to fields, set automatic action-reaction mechanisms, and much more.

We recommend that you customise your CRM by following these steps:

  • Customise the layout of the modules according to the content you need to load (see Layout Editor);
  • Define the lists using the Filters tool (please refer to it for further details) taking into account the custom fields introduced;
  • Define (or redefine, if necessary) the access and security privileges of each user, also in the individual field (see Sharing Access, Roles and other tools involved);
  • Introduce additional customisations (using the tools listed in this chapter), for example view colouring or workflows.

The tools to customise vtenext can be found in the Business Process Manager section of the General Settings menu:

Generates the processes that autonomously manage the data flow within the CRM
