Posted by Posted on by

Zoho Projects is used around the world and what better way to access it than in your mother tongue! In addition to English, we have added the following language options – French, German, Japanese, Spanish, Dutch, Danish, Czech, Italian, Portuguese (European & Brazilian), Swedish & Russian. More language options will get added in future.

Adminstrators & managers can be up-to-date now, thanks to RSS feeds support. A couple of options available here – RSS at the individual project level and at the account level (combined feed for all projects). The feeds are HTTP authenticated and so use a RSS feed reader which supports authenticated feeds.

In addition to the already available ‘Duration’ of Tasks, you now have the option to specify the ‘End Date’ for each of your Tasks.

Test drive the latest Zoho Projects for all your project management needs.

Zoho Sheet in Catalan and Turkish

Posted by Posted on by

We did a small update in Zoho Sheet today. Zoho Sheet is now available in Catalan and Turkish, thanks to our users Joaquim Virgili and Alpay, who translated these languages in translate.sheet.zoho.com. You can select these languages from the Language link at the top after signing in. We have also updated the rest of the languages with the latest messages from our translation site. Zoho Sheet is now available in 16 languages. And our users are translating it to 23 other languages. We have now added Slovak, Urdu, Hindi and Filipino in our translation service so that users can translate Zoho Sheet to these languages as well.

One more addition is that we now support inserting images from an URL too. You can choose to load it each time from the given URL or to load it from a copy downloaded to your collected images in Zoho Sheet.

Apart from the above, we have also fixed some issues in our Remote API editor on IE.

Zoho Notebook Update: More Shapes, Show Integration, Enhanced plug-in & more…

Posted by Posted on by

We rolled out another update for Zoho Notebook. Some of the highlights include…

  • Support for more shapes in the drawing toolbar
  • Integration with Zoho Show
  • Enhanced Firefox plug-in to capture screenshots
  • Previous & Next buttons for published notebooks

Apart from these features, lot of effort went into the back-end optimization and collaboration in Notebook. Let us look at each of these new features.

More Shapes:

At the bottom of the drawing toolbar you’ll now see a new icon (p2.png) clicking on which shows all the new shapes that are new added.


Once a shape is added, you can then choose to change the dimensions, fill color, border color etc from the options available in the toolbar (picture-3.png).

Zoho Show Integration:
We now have Zoho Show integrated into Zoho Notebook at the object level. You’ll see picture-4.png option on the left where you can select the presentation you have in Zoho Show and embed that directly in Notebook.

Firefox plug-in:

Two new options are added to Notebook’s Firefox plugin.

  1. Snap Page to Zoho Notebook
  2. Snap Region to Zoho Notebook


These two options will let you take snapshots of web page or part of a web page to your notebook. The snapshot will be available as an image and will automatically be uploaded and inserted in the open page in notebook. For these features to work, you’ll have to be logged into Notebook.

When you click on ‘Snap Region to Zoho Notebook’, you’ll see a small rectangle appear on the page. Move and resize this rectangle to the area you want to take a snapshot of and click the camera icon (picture-5-copy.png) and give it a name for the snapshot to appear on your notebook page.

Next & Prev Buttons:
For better page navigation, we also added a small navigation strip (picture-7.png) to move between pages. You can check this out in this public book.

Do give these new features and try and let us know your feedback. Also, if there is any other feature you’d like to see in notebook, please do let us know.
