It’s been over a year since we started working on the new version of Zoho Projects and are very excited about it. We believe the new Projects 4.0 is the best version our customers have ever experienced.
We recently opened this new version in preview mode for a few of our customers and we are thrilled to share some of the things they had to say about it so far:
When developing Zoho Projects 4.0, we had 3 clear goals in mind:
Last week we announced Dropbox integration in Zoho Projects. On this front today we’re listing out the possible ways to sync files in Dropbox via Zoho Projects.
Here’s how it works :
Email files and sync it with Dropbox
In Zoho Projects, every folder is associated with an email address. Just copy this email address compose a mail along with an attachment and click send.That’s it, your file is uploaded in Zoho Projects. And if this folder is configured for syncing with your Dropbox presto…your file is now available in your Dropbox account.
Push files from Zoho / Google Docs into Dropbox
Upload files from your Zoho or Google Docs into a folder that is already synced with your Dropbox account. This way your files are automatically pushed from Zoho or Google Docs into your Dropbox from anywhere.
Isn’t it cool ?…
Zoho Projects 4.0 is keeping our developers busy working on some amazing stuff. While rest of us get to see the latest Projects News feed or the Task Details page interface shared with us in the team portal for feed backs.
The other day while working from home, I discovered few issues in Projects News feed interface and had to follow a sequence to share a feedback : Take a screenshot of the error, save it in a folder, login to Zoho Projects and upload the image files. In addition, syncing files with every machine be it a laptop or desktop was becoming very difficult across different computers.
That’s yesterday. Enter Dropbox integration in Zoho Projects, whether working from office or home all my files are now up-to-date and intact. I created a folder Projects 4.0 on Dropbox and synced this with Projects 4.0 folder of team portal. Now whenever I drop a file in my Dropbox account from home or work it is instantly shared through my Zoho Projects account with the team.…
A mobile phone is the first thing you pick up in the morning, and the last thing you put away while you’re going to sleep. You browse with it, connect with your family, friends and interact with those that matter most on it. But that’s not all, it stays with you and keeps up with you where ever you are.
On this front, we recently made an announcement of Zoho Projects Native App for iPhone at our Zoholics event. With this update, we’re making it easier than ever to connect from anywhere and get your work done faster so your productivity never skips a beat – even if you’re in an airplane.
For Example, you can quickly get to know who is working on what in a project, check off your tasks when they’re done and manage timesheets from anywhere. Need to share an important detail? No worries, just pick your mobile, tap and share it with the team and voilà… your update is posted even when you are away on a travel.…
About a month ago, we added sub tasks functionality to the task management module to help teams better manage and complete their work much faster.
Fast forward to now, and we’re pretty excited with the uptake it has got among our customers. Along the same lines, we were bombarded with requests to have duration in hours for tasks / sub tasks. Hence we were forced to break ground on this due to the sheer volume of requests flooding our customer forums and tech support.
So we took these requests to heart and today we’re glad to launch THE much awaited duration in hours for tasks.
How to enable task duration for your portal ?
Just, go to Edit Profile under Portal Settings and select hours instead of days, save it and you’re done. Task duration in hours gets enabled for your project portal. It’s simple isn’t it?
Note: You must be the portal owner to enable this option for your.
Here’s a piece of exciting news! Get your bugs off other bug trackers and into Zoho with the brand new Import Bugs option. We’d work hard to make your migration from other bug tracking services quick and hassle free into Zoho. While this is a great feature, we request you to take care of few things before you start the Import.
Few points to ponder :
- Only CSV file format supported and must be UTF-8(Unicode) encoded
- Supported date formats: DD/MMM/YYYY, DD/MM/YYYY, DD-MM-YYYY, MM/DD/YYYY, MM-DD-YYYY in CSV file
