Some cool features that you users had been asking for got added in the latest Zoho Projects update done yesterday.

  • If you have the same list of tasks to be duplicated across Milestones/Projects, ‘Task List Template’ is for you. You can create a new template from scratch (click on ‘Settings’ -> ‘Templates’) or make an existing tasklist as a ‘Template Task List’.
  • You can now send private messages to a selected few members of your Projects account. Click on Users -> Send Message (previously, you can only send / not send messages for all members in a project about Meetings & Forum posts)
  • Archived tasks can now be exported (previously only Pending & Closed tasks could only be exported)
  • While posting to the forum, the attachments will be sent along with the notification mail. Also, while replying to a forum post, you have the choice to notify all the users or the owner alone.
  • Project details are displayed when you mouse over a project’s name in the left panel. Likewise, the notes added to a task get displayed on mouseover too.

Other than the above, a few bug fixes got in as well.

Try the new Zoho Projects and please do share your thoughts.

‘The Minnesota Daily’ in an article titled ‘Microsoft Office on the way out‘ reports that some government agencies in the USA have banned usage of Vista on their computers. The article points incompatibility with other software as the reason. It goes on to add that online office applications have already started making inroads and has the below to say about Zoho :

Even more exciting than Google’s new offering is another online program called Zoho. Unlike Google Apps, Zoho has its own version of PowerPoint and can produce charts from spreadsheets; as of now. Zoho is additionally compatible with Microsoft Office and allows users to work in Office while offline and transfer work easily back and forth.

Currently, it is most useful to use Google Apps and Zoho in conjunction with Microsoft’s already established and universally accepted Office programs. It is, however, worth noting how quickly the online applications have made their mark, and the abundance of options can only mean good things for students and consumers.

Ready for some office unproductivity? Folks at Jambav (funded by Zoho’s parent company, AdventNet) have come out with a fun site named ToonDoo. ToonDoo is an easy way to create comic strips. You can choose from the characters, props, backgrounds available and can also upload your own images. It takes just 5 minutes to make a strip.

Within AdventNet, ToonDoo gets a lot more visits than Zoho – reassuring to know our engineers have their priorities figured out. As our CEO, Sridhar likes to quote the quote “If you enjoyed the time you wasted, you didn’t waste it after all”.
