Zoho Launches Start Page: Zoho Start
Zoho has launched a new start page/integrated console which they call Zoho Start. Zoho Start allows you to bring together all of the Zoho applications together into one snapshot view. The Zoho Start page currently works with Zoho Show, Zoho Writer and Zoho Sheet and they are working towards making all Zoho applications available.
The official feature set includes:
- Users can now login to a common page from www.zoho.com directly without having to go to individual application login pages.
- 'My Documents' section integrates Documents, Spreadsheets and Presentations from Zoho Writer, Sheet and Show
- Folder Management – Ability to segregate documents into folders
- A common user interface to Share, Tag, Export documents
- 'Zoho Apps' tab (on the right) helps you navigate to other Zoho Apps you have access to.
- 'My Contacts' section integrates your contacts (from Zoho Chat)
My suggestion for the Zoho team is to look at creating a full start page. Add the ability to add feeds and other content (similar to Pageflakes, maybe an integration option there!) and then users of Zoho would have no reason to go elsewhere. This could increase the top of mind awareness for Zoho as the user would be on a Zoho property for an extended period of time.
Editor's note: Zoho is a current CN sponsor.
