Zoho Challenge users have this oft repeated query, “How do I export my questions from Zoho Challenge?” We have addressed this by introducing the “Export Questions from Question Bank” feature. Using this option, you can export all your questions as a CSV file and Zoho Challenge will send you an email, with the exported questions as an attachment.
The above feature also solves the other requirement that Zoho Challenge users typically have – copying bulk questions from one question bank to another. For this, you can export your questions from one question bank and import them back into the other question bank.
Import/Export feature is available from the Standard plan.
You can import/export about 1,000 questions at a time.
Dave Monk is the CEO of the IT consulting firm ArcSource. His company’s CRM system has evolved over time. First being completely in his head, to a homegrown system for tracking clients’ technical needs, to a full-blown CRM solution for current and prospective clients.
Business: ArcSource is a 12-year-old IT support and consulting business. They act as the IT department for a couple of hundred companies that are too small to have their own IT department.
The challenge: For five years Monk’s firm failed at managing new project opportunities or tracking customers throughout their life cycle. All they had done was build some homegrown stuff to track certain client information, such as technical specs, that were necessary for doing their job. After that, they had nothing.
“When we started everything was being tracked in my head.…
Articles about the state of the economy in the media invariably feature one or more graphs. Say how the GDP has fared over the last few quarters or how the inflation has been over the last few years. Various government agencies are involved in publishing these indicators. Sites like http://www.data.gov, http://www.bea.gov, http://www.census.gov etc publish lots of such data regularly. The difficulty here is that you might get overwhelmed with loads of data. You can get lost in searching for what you want across multiple sites. So we thought of putting some of the important indicators all at one place, as a Zoho Reports dashboard.
You can mouse over/click a bar or a point to see the underlying data. Let us know if you would like any other metric to be included in the above dashboard. The whole reporting database is available here.…
The Playwrights’ Center focuses on both supporting playwrights and promoting new plays to theaters across the country. Significantly, they offer over $200,000 in fellowships to writers and theater artists each year. They also organize workshops where playwrights can get together with actors and directors to see their script at work, and manage several other programs that help playwrights get connected and build their careers. As they work closely with theaters, actors, directors, and writers, they have an advantage when it comes to advocating for artists and promoting them.
Way back in 1971, five playwrights were seeking professional assistance and support.
The Playwrights’ Center
was founded by these five writers to help them secure productions of their plays, and later expanded to offer multiple forms of support and professional assistance.…
Zoho Support’s Customer Portal, the exclusive interface for your customers to submit and track their requests, just got better. A couple of weeks back, we introduced custom themes support for the customer portal. Today, we are happy to roll out a new set of enhancements to the customer portal, like allowing your customers to view their organization tickets, customizing the portal invitation and configuring the default language.
View Organization Requests in the Customer Portal
All this while, users logging into the customer portal could view and track only the requests submitted by themselves. Now, in the enhanced customer portal, they can also view the requests submitted by others in their organization. Apart from viewing, they can also post a reply and track the status of the requests. This would avoid duplicate requests about similar issues getting posted from an organization, which in turn will significantly reduce the overall number of incoming requests coming into your support portal.…

For this, project managers need an efficient system to place the appropriate employees in the right teams at the right time.

You need the right tool that can capture and show the resources utilized within or across all projects of your organization.
The latest update of Zoho Projects offers this crucial feature called Resource Utilization chart, that accurately captures all of the above in a single place.…
