NetForum Enterprise is a feature-rich association management system (AMS), but most associations will inevitably find themselves needing to customize. That’s fine – NetForum allows customizations. The challenge comes in down the road when you’re looking to upgrade and the customization does not support new functionality available in the new release or worse breaks down completely. Implementing customizations that leverage baseline may reduce your heartburn during future upgrades enhancements. Here are a few customization trade-offs to consider.


1. Gain a basic understanding of key software development concepts

2. Understand the implications of different approaches to customizations

3. Learn about the business case for taking different approaches to customizations
