SaaS Tools: Zoho Calendar Leaves Beta
The first new feature Zoho Calendar gets is calendar sharing, which does exactly what it sounds like. You can privately share calendars with other Zoho users, either in read-only or in a read-write mode that shows all event details. Zoho users can even specify if they want to let others add events to their calendar for them.
It also gets calendar subscriptions: You can import calendar events to Zoho by file or by URL, or you can use a calendar feed to subscribe to an external calendar. Moreover, you can also yourself subscribe to internal and external calendars – in this case, “internal” means calendars from other Zoho applications like Zoho Projects or Zoho CRM.
Other new features include a bevy of GUI tweaks, an agenda view, and embeddable calendars.
Nothing about this Zoho Calendar update screams “disruption,” but it does speak to an always-maturing SaaS productivity suite that’s been making fascinating moves.
