Hello vtiger developers,
I hope you will find this post useful. Recently based on a client need, we made possible the export of records of a filter.
I have tried best to make use of the native vtiger interface for export and this code just adds another option to the export options.
Here are the steps
1. You create a custom filter in any module
2. Define its fields
3. You want to export only the selected records of the filter
4. Click on ‘Export’ button of the module
5. Save the results of the CSV file
Here are the related screen shots.
Here are the files – http://rapidshare.com/share/33BDD83F560CA25C00F304A329703578
Here are the locations –
ExportRecords.tpl – vtigercrm\Smarty\templates\ExportRecords.tpl
As always, check it out on a trial instance. With the usual caveats, I say that there is no problem for the drop in file replacement.
