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.
We are delighted to announce a couple of new additions to Zoho Gadgets – Notes and Links. The Links gadget makes it easy for you to bookmark your favorite and oft visited URLs. And the Notes gadget allows you to jot down quick notes. These gadgets are in sync with the Links and Notes modules in Zoho Business/Personal.
The gadgets can be added in iGoogle, Facebook, Orkut or any web page that either supports OpenSocial XML or lets you embed an iframe.
The aggregated page of Zoho Business/Personal’s ‘Desktop’ tab now makes use of Zoho Gadgets too.
This allows you to arrange the different Zoho gadgets through easy drag and drop. And makes it easy for the power Zoho user in you to use the various Zoho apps all at a single page.
Try the new Zoho Gadgets and let us know your comments. Coming up next are the business-centric gadgets like Zoho CRM, Projects and Invoice. Stay tuned.
