How do I navigate the Summary View of a record in Vtiger CRM?

Table of Contents

Section 3
Following are the actions in the right section:

  2. Other tabs: Hover over the other tab to display other tabs such as Analytics, related Documents, Products, and more, replacing the One View on the view board. One View can also be replaced with the Detailed View, which displays all the contact record details.
