Formula builder in SugarCRM

Recently I came across a strange behavior on SugarCRM formula builder.
What I wanted to do is Hide/Show fields based on other field condition.
In studio I checked the Dependent checkbox and I add the condition like so for my Status textbox


equal($stage_complete_c, "true")

My Status text box will be visible if $stage_complete_c = true.
So far so good. The textbox is indeed hidden if the $stage_complete_c = false and will appear when the value = true.
However this only applies to the EditView which is pretty strange.
When I click the save button and I go to DetailView my Status textbox is still hidden eventhough $stage_complete_c value = true.

The solution that I came up with is this

not(equal($stage_complete_c, "false"))

Now my Status text box will appear on both DetailView and EditView when the $stage_complete_c value = true.
Basically it’s doing the same thing and I don’t know why this one work and the other doesn’t


Solid State Drive for Saleslogix Development

I recently acquired a Solid State Drive for my desktop (black Friday sale). I know there are plenty of examples of benchmarks floating around comparing SSD vs HDD performance, but I haven’t seen any real world examples of performance. So I thought I would do some real world testing and write up my results. All I’ve done is time events that I have to do several times a day while working and writing up the results.

Disclaimer: I am not a professional hardware tester. I didn’t set out to test performance in a perfectly clean environment or run tests that I knew would benefit the SSD. I set out to test the performance of things I do on a daily basis. These are the results from my experience. Your experience will vary.
