The normal SageCRM user interface that we have got used to over the years is that the user clicks on a tab and if the tab lists multiple records then the user are presented with a grid. The user then has to click on one of the records to view the summary or detail information of that record. Makes perfect sense.
However there are some users who have such multiple tabs and each of the tabs have grid listed. Now instead of viewing one grid at a time and then clicking on another grid to view the other details, the users need to see the information of both the grids in one single page. It is more like a live in relationship; not related but still together. Till recent past though the SQL relationship between the tables were all that I needed to know while understanding or explaining SageCRM but I could not find a better example than this one J.
So now that you have understood what we need to achieve and why we have to do that lets check how to do it and what are the challenges that we encounter during the development.
