Whenever I have run into a situation where someone goes…
We talked about this last month Hari! Remember you said….. and I said ….and blah blah….
… I used to wonder how it would be nice to have a
for all conversations we ever had.
If you think about it, great ideas just fade into oblivion, good prospects are lost and projects get delayed because we are unable to connect the dots and keep in sync with our discussions and conversations. Thanks to the rather exclusive conversation thread view feature in
Zoho Mail, I am able to catch up on all my email conversations.
Recently, I was checking the feedback received from Zoho Mail users who chose to take the optional survey when they logged out (Thank you all). To my surprise, 47% have said that they never use the conversation view. Then these questions ran through my mind:
Is it possible that 47% never had any long conversations over email?

In a recent post titled ‘How the Office is evolving‘, Eric Kintz at Gigaom talks about the transformation of work-spaces from the original ‘cubicle’ concept to the “New Office”.
Excerpts from Eric’s post:
“Today, the physical space is adapting to the way teams work – ad hoc, on a project basis, cross-functional, with team members scattered around the world. We’re witnessing a fragmentation of collaboration spaces.
The “New Office” is an airport lounge on a tablet, a midnight video call on the kitchen counter, a shared table at the office or a collaboration pod for ad hoc meetings.”
Eric also goes on to predict: “The personal space will continue to shrink and become increasingly mobile/virtual. We’ll likely see a day where the office becomes a series of collaboration spaces, designed to connect fragmented virtual teams.”
As Philippe Bogard started growing his scientific consulting business, he began collecting thousands of leads. While he did a great job making first contact, he failed with the critical follow up. He struggled to find a solution to collect and manage those leads. He initially started with a Microsoft Access database, but he knew he needed a better solution.
Back in 2004, Philippe Bogard launched a consulting business, Proteomics Consult. Proteomics (check it out on Wikipedia) is the science of discovering proteins. If your genes are your body’s blueprint, then the proteins are the elements that travel across that blueprint.
In the early days of his business, Bogard had only two major clients. At that time it was fairly easy to manage his business relations without a CRM solution. Problem was even though his client roster was short, the leads he was collecting, from all the conferences he was attending, was growing into the thousands.…
A small police department of the Delaware County in Pennsylvania, USA, are not only saving lives but paper too. They have decided to go paperless by storing all their documents online and Zoho Docs has been chosen for their online document management.?
According to officers at the police department, this move would enhance communications between the public and the police. With this system in place the public would be able to get forms online, saving both the public and police personnel a lot of time and effort.
Officers also noted that with the tremendous volumes of documents stored, some documents are stuck into a file and never seen again. They felt it’s a waste of paper and more importantly time, as it sometimes takes an hour for a secretary to retrieve a document. But with Zoho Docs, the police department is able to store their files online securely, organize them neatly into multi-level folders and with the full-text search feature, it’s easier to find and access them. Also, with its affordable pricing, it was within the budget of the department.
Any online meeting or web meeting will be a painless experience only if joining the meeting is easy and simple. Zoho Meeting, our simple and secure online meeting provider, has made joining a meeting much simpler now, with our new HTML viewer. A viewer is a web page or plugin, with which one can join an online meeting. Zoho Meeting has been offering three viewers, based on Java, ActiveX and Flash for the participants so far. Our Flash-based viewer was developed to do away the installation. But again, it depends on the flash plugin. Hence, we started exploring the latest html technology to get rid of even such minimal dependencies. Thus, we created the new HTML viewer.
This new HTML viewer neither requires any installation nor is dependent on any plugin. Just a single click to join a meeting leads you to the viewer and within seconds you will be inside the meeting.…
The biggest challenge for every software developer is to get rid of the bugs. It’s not about coding, it’s about removing those weeds (the bugs) before they ruin the lawn (your software). This constant editing process is what makes a software great. For this, you need a bug tracker integrated with an efficient source control system to host your codes in one place and is accessible from anywhere.
Today we’re launching this extra piece of functionality: the
Here’s what you get:
With this new integration, you can link your GitHub repository in Zoho BugTracker using service hooks. Henceforth, codes checked-in in GitHub automatically gets displayed as
in BugTracker. Also, while commiting changes in GitHub for a specified bug ID will be linked to that particular bug in BugTracker.
Github is definitely one of the fast, efficient and distributed online web hosting sites you can find all over the internet.…
