For over an year, Zoho Discussions has been helping businesses and non-profit organizations create and foster communities that involve and empower its members and help crowd-source decision making.
One of the design goals of Zoho Discussions was to reduce the amount of technical expertise administrators needed to setup and maintain an user community. But one of the things we’ve heard loud and clear is that many of our customers did not find the initial setup process as easy as they’d like it to be. The main reason was that Zoho Discussions setup management had so many options and controls that it took some time to get used to.
We also realized that our customer base was broadly split into two main segments – those who wanted to setup a private community (for improving employee engagement, supporting private beta launches etc) and those who wanted to set up a public customer support community.…
Tod Maffin is a keynote speaker from Vancouver, Canada. A thought-provoking digital marketing analyst, he is the COO and senior strategist at tMedia Strategies. Adding to the many hats he wears, Tod is also one of the podcasting pioneers of Canada. We came across a
tweet from Tod which said he built his custom CRM entirely on the
Zoho Creator platform. That piqued our interest and we asked him about his Zoho Creator CRM app. Tod had an interesting story to tell.
He was using a CRM system (non-Zoho), exclusively made for keynote speakers. But he soon realized that not all speakers have similar requirements and he didn’t need a full-fledged CRM. He felt he was paying $100 a month for a good many features he never used (in addition to the few ones he did like). Luckily, he stumbled upon Zoho Creator. He then built a custom CRM using Zoho Creator, consisting only of those features he needed.…
Collaborate via email, now for the Bugs module!
We’ve enhanced the bug comments feature. Previously, you had to login to Zoho Projects and post comments directly under each bug. But now, you can add a comment by just replying to the bug notification email you get. Also, you can attach files to a bug by email too.
A sample screen grab of the unique bug email address.
Here’s the bug comment added via email.

We have been receiving many requests from our users asking when
Zoho Office Plug-in would be available for SharePoint 2010.
Well, the wait is finally over. Zoho Office plug-in for SharePoint 2010 is now publicly available for download.
If you are a new user wondering what this plug-in is all about, Zoho Office for SharePoint is a plug-in for Microsoft SharePoint that enables a SharePoint user to view and edit documents, spreadsheets and presentations stored on the SharePoint server using Zoho Office suite (Zoho Writer,
Zoho Sheet and
Zoho Show respectively). The documents can be viewed and edited from inside the SharePoint portal.
Multiple users can collaboratively work on a document in real time. With integrated chat, real time collaboration works that much better.
No Office software needs to be installed on the client desktop to work with the documents.

Based on our customers’ requests, we have made a few improvements to our Applicant Tracking System, Zoho Recruit. Particularly, the Publish in Website section of the Job Openings module got a lot more enhanced. Let’s see the improvements made in detail.
a. New User Interface: Earlier, when you click on the Publish in website link, all the customization options appeared in a single screen. But now, to make your experience better, we have split these options into different segments like Look & Feel, Job opening fields, Candidate fields, Email alerts and Published job openings.
b. Customization Options: In the Look & Feel tab, you can now customize the Apply Now button with your own label. And if you do not want the candidates to click on this button, you can disable it from showing in the website. In addition to this, there’s another new option, where you can customize the display message when there is no job openings published in your website.…
