    In Sugar 7.6, there's an an awesome little undocumented feature that SugarCRM is calling Sweet Spot (which we first mentioned in our SugarCon 2015 Recap: Day 2 Blog Post).

    Think of the "Sweet Spot" like Spotlight for Mac, a global search shortcut that allows you to quickly locate contacts, accounts and much more within your Sugar instance.

    To start using the sweet spot try the matching shortcut key sequence below within a Sugar 7.6 window.

    Shortcut

    Mac OS X

    cmd+shift+space

    Windows

    ctrl+shift+space

    Linux

    ctrl+shift+space

    Actions in Sweet Spot

    All you Sugar Developers and Sugar Administrators will like the Actions feature which allows you to quickly run many actions quickly from anywhere in the application. Administrators additionally get easy access to many administrative functions through Sweet Spot.

    There are actually several more features that we haven’t shown here. But we will leave the rest for you guys to discover on your own!

    Plans for this feature are still evolving but we think it will ultimately grow into an exciting addition to the Sugar user experience. Try it out today in any Sugar 7.6 instance!
