Features that Extend CRM Core
CRM Core is designed to act as a platform where developers can extend the basic capabilities of the system using features.
A feature is a small, useful application designed to extend what CRM Core does. A feature may be a Feature in the Drupal module sense of the word, but it does not have to be. Any module that extends the basic functionality of CRM Core can be considered a feature.
There is a growing list of features for CRM Core becoming available. These features are freely available for use in your Drupal websites. Some features come bundled as part of installation profiles that you can use to easily get up-and-running with a fully-configured version of CRM Core. Installation profiles are generally configured for a specific purpose, but can easily be modified to handle other use cases.
