In real, what every business needs is a tool which encompasses all these features into one.

Presentations are canvases that narrate rich stories. The presenter now resembles a story teller with a script or a broader idea from which a captivating story is told. Unlike a narrator holding a book though, presenters have traditionally relied on slides projected on the screen to guide the audience. Unfortunately, there is very little access to content beyond the brief script on the slide - a major headache for presenters who deliver long presentations.
This is where the Presenter View benefits speakers. Presenter view enables you to see what the audience is viewing on the screen, while also having an extended version of the presentation open on your laptop. This means, as a presenter you no longer have to depend on the same slides duplicated on two screens. You also have access to elaborate slide content and a set of other tools that makes presentations effortless. Read more

Gone are the days when file security meant locking the drawer to your file cabinet to protect your sensitive documents. As we all know, today, most of our documents are created and saved online – but are they more secure now than in old file cabinets? Well, with the right precautions, they certainly can be.
Cloud storage, online document sharing, and real-time collaboration are just some of the new document management technologies that offer businesses the ability to quickly and accurately generate professional documents that can be shared with colleagues, business partners and customers. Modern cloud document management and collaboration tools have taken the speed of business to another level. Cloud or online applications in a simple sense is the ability for users to access applications and store data from anywhere, at anytime, without having to install the application on their machines. A simple to understand cloud application is Facebook. You log into Facebook, add comments to your timeline, upload photos and interact with your friends and logout. But, the data remains on Facebook long after you logout, because the application and the data resides on Facebook servers, “in the cloud”.
While the benefits and productivity gains of cloud-based document management are apparent, the question of document security may not be. But, with some simple tips and best practices, businesses and users can take advantage of these modern storage and collaboration tools with the comfort of knowing that their documents are also secure.
Multiple users, one huge document and a lot of review comments to be implemented. Sounds like a nightmare?
Well, it can turn out to be one without the right tool. Collaboration is a breeze when you can keep a track of all the changes made to the document by each user. And what is the best way to do that? – Track changes it is!
Taking the popular demands into account; I am excited to bring you the announcement of our latest feature - Track Changes for Zoho Writer, the online document editor of Zoho Docs.
