CiviCRM Entity 8.x-3.0-beta2 released

Skvare is pleased to announce a beta2 release of CiviCRM Entity 3.0. 

New in this release is support for Drupal 9! If you are considering a new website or upgrading your Drupal 7 site, the time is right to build with Drupal 9. We are building websites with CiviCRM, CiviCRM Entity and Drupal 9 now. 

Contact Skvare to get consultation, creative Drupal integration and development for your CiviCRM installation, and additional features for CiviCRM Entity.

CiviCRM Entity is the module which provides enhanced integration with Drupal, allowing developers, site builders, and content creators to utilize powerful Drupal modules including Views, Layout Builder, Media, and Rules. Drupal fields can be added to CiviCRM entity types. It provides Drupal pages and edit forms for all CiviCRM data such as contacts, allowing usage of familiar Drupal content creation tools and workflows. 

A picture is worth a thousand words. The screenshot below is the Drupal page for a CiviCRM contact.  The majority of the data is in the CiviCRM database, changes made on the CiviCRM contact summary page are immediately reflected there. It is built using Drupal’s Layout Builder, Media, and Views, without custom code except the theme styling.
