Zoho Show 2.0, launched last December added lots of new features including shapes, symbols, clipart, enhanced themes, revamped UI etc. Today’s update includes,

Posted by Posted on by

Zoho Writer now supports footnotes & endnotes, two much asked for functionalities by our users (students, teachers & researchers in particular). The below slideshow shows the details of footnotes & endnotes in Zoho Writer.

Other than the footnotes & endnotes being visible during print (use the ‘Print Using PDF’ option), they get transferred when exported as Microsoft Word (.doc) or Adobe Acrobat (.pdf) files as well. Support for .odt to come in the upcoming update.

Try the new foot/endnotes in Zoho Writer and we will be glad hearing your feedback.

ps : The foot/endnotes extend the pagination and header/footer support which got added a couple of months back.

How to send and receive mass mails using Zoho CRM

How to send and receive mass mails using Zoho CRM?

Let me clear the air with some facts that one has to live with today while using Zoho CRM :-

  • One can send mass mails ONLY if one is a paid user with Zoho CRM.
  • One can send 250 mails/day ONLY using the mass mail feature in ONE day as of now (Think of mass mail as a 1-shot use tool to be used once a day. You can break the 250 into 100+100+50 or any other permutation that you want)
  • One can send unlimited number of mails if mails are being sent individually ie without using the mass-mail feature.

Okay, the air is cleared now. What next ?

Zoho CRM cannot receive emails as of now. So how to address this problem? Hmmm.

There is a work-around for this!

  1. Assume that you have logged in as and using mass-mail feature have sent 200 emails. Please note, the from address will be set as Configure your Outlook Mail Client to receive the responses to those 200 emails sent with the from as id .
  2. Now login to Zoho CRM Server. Download the Outlook Plugin from Setup –> Personal Settings –> Outlook Edition.
  3. Go to Setup –> Subscription Manager –> Users Activation and enable the Plugin for the account
  4. Next install the Outlook Plugin into your Outlook Mail Client.   Now you are set to work with the Outlook Plugin!
  5. Go to the Outlook Mail Client and invoke the Plugin and login with id. Now you can synchronize the Tasks, Events and Emails from Outlook to Zoho CRM and vice-versa.

Note:- It is preferable to sync mails 1-by-1 since you may experience performance problems otherwise.

Zoho Blogs & Forums in maintenance mode

Posted by Posted on by

This blog and all of Zoho services’ forums are being migrated to a newer infrastructure over the next 2 days. And so, the connection to blogs/forums is going to be patchy during the weekend. We regret the inconvenience this may cause.

Subscribing to the forums, blog feed should make things a little better.

UPDATE : ToonDoo, our frivolous little sister, will be down during this time too.
