Tax season is here! As if gathering all the documents and filling out tax forms isn’t enough to give you a headache, you’ll also need to watch out for those pesky cyber criminals while filing your taxes online.
The IRS reported that there was a steady increase in the total number of tax returns that were e-filed over the past few years. Last year, more than 117 million tax returns were e-filed. As the trend of filing taxes online continues to increase among taxpayers, cyber criminals look for lucrative and sophisticated ways to trap them and make more money.
The good news is that, even though there are some risks associated with filing your taxes online, there are ways to minimize them. Read on to learn more about some of the dangers and tips to reduce them.
Exciting it is, as we again have the good news to share with our users. After a few months of hard work, last week we released five new features in Zoho Sites. And going forward we have added more than five this week too. Let’s take a look at these newbies.
Move or Copy Design Elements
Copying and moving web page elements or page design is the most common practice while we create web pages. So with this new update, we have made it so simple, in fact just a click away for you to move or copy page design/elements across pages. For instance, you can copy a table layout from a source page to any other page with this move/copy button.
You enter your favorite café. You are greeted with the same familiar warm smile! “The usual?” you are asked. You smile in agreement, and get yourself seated in your favorite seat overlooking the driveway. Within a few minutes of comfortable wait, there comes your favorite expresso, along with a copy of the Times “Here you go, sir! Double Shot, just the way you like it!” You smile, totally wondering which is a more pleasant experience – sipping your favorite coffee from your favorite café, or the warmth with which you are being treated! Every single time!
I asked myself this question: When was the last time someone connected with me on a personal note? When was the last time I was greeted with such a warm smile? Well, I realized I have to take you back in time. My time, from my childhood!
Our neighborhood baker knew my family well. My father would just say “the usual” and the baker would give us bread for the day. He knew that we preferred french bread on weekends, and would take the necessary care to make sure it was there during weekends. We never had to tell him anything, he knew us so well. He’d quietly gift us some muffins whenever there was a family occasion. Everyone in the bakery knew everyone in the neighborhood. We might not have known many people or had many contacts during those days. But the ones we knew, we knew them well. Very well!
An army of one, a behemoth business of 10,000, or a team somewhere in between—every company needs a distinct mission statement to define, defend and develop their culture from ideas into a thriving organization.
Regrettably, the mission statement has become a check-box task, littered with vague corporate-jargon-babble, printed and posted in the same exact spot in each identical cubicle. Resulting in an odd dichotomy of being both—utterly worthless for the company’s employees and incredibly illuminating of their hollow culture—simultaneously.
The Documents module in Zoho Projects just got a big boost. You can now create rich documents, spreadsheets and presentations right here and work on them collaboratively with your team. This update powered by Zoho Docs lets you do a lot more and here are some of the benefits.
Bring your team closer together
Here is a trend we see more and more when it comes to projects that are creative in nature: the best work gets done not through individual efforts, but by a group of people, collaboratively refining, reimagining and reinventing ideas. All the apps in the Docs suite come with several features that let such collaboration happen naturally. First and foremost, all these documents can be co-created; i.e. more than one person can work on them at the same time. You can chat with all the collaborators as you go, right within the document window. Getting feedback is easy; each letter in your text documents and each cell in your spreadsheets can be commented on. An inbuilt versioning system lets you view the changes a document has gone through, and if needed revert to an older version. Read more
A good CRM software helps you organize your contacts and follow up with your leads till you close the deal. But a great CRM does a lot more. It helps you generate, capture, nurture and grow your business in a holistic manner. If you’re an entrepreneur, you know what I’m talking about.
When you’ve just started your business, you’re doing it all: sales, marketing, follow ups, execution. Zoho CRM is just like you – it can do it all. How? With some key integrations.
Take a moment and think back to the last time you looked for a job. The last time you navigated a company’s career site. The last time you filled out an application and waited patiently for a response. (Okay, maybe you weren’t that patient).
How was the experience? Do you remember feeling frustrated or lost? Could you pinpoint the company’s career page? Did the application have more blanks than a Wheel of Fortune Bonus Puzzle without “RSTLNE” or more instructions than the board game “Risky Settlers Knights and Allies of the Lords’ Dominions of Earth: Pandemic Edition?”
Positive or negative, a candidate’s perception of a company can change based on the application and recruiting process. As recruiters, we can no longer ignore the candidate experience or treat it as an afterthought.
