Zoho Docs for Desktop Debuts
Sep 20, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
Zoho announced it has added a desktop application - Zoho Docs for Desktop - with two-way file synchronization capability to Zoho Docs, the company's online document management application with integrated online office suite.
According to a release, now, Zoho Docs users can synchronize files on their local Windows, Mac and Linux desktop and laptop computers with the cloud as well as sync their cloud files with their local computers.
Zoho noted it will demonstrate the file synchronization capabilities of Zoho Docs in a webinar to be held on Wednesday, September 25, at 9 a.m. PDT. Registration for this webinar is being held online.
"Making user's files available at all locations is an important feature of a document management system. We are happy to offer two-way file synchronization capability to Windows, Mac and Linux users," said Raju Vegesna, Zoho evangelist. "Zoho users now get a powerful two-way file synchronization capability combined with expanded storage options and a tightly integrated online office suite, making this a unique offering for businesses."
In addition, the Company noted:
Zoho Docs for Desktop allows users to sync their Zoho Docs files and folders to Windows, Mac or Linux laptop or desktop computers. Users can sync all files and folders or pick specific folders to sync. With the sync folder in place on authorized computers, users will have the files available both in the Zoho Docs cloud folder as well as on their computers at the same time. Other Zoho Docs file sync highlights include:
Instant file sync - Zoho Docs syncs files between the Zoho Docs cloud application and local computers instantaneously. Files on multiple computers linked to a Zoho Docs account will also be synced instantaneously.
Team coordination -To enhance collaboration, Zoho Docs lets users sync shared workspaces on their desktops. Changes made to workspace files are reflected on multiple computers running Zoho Docs, so every workspace member will see the latest changes.
Selective sync - Zoho Docs offers selective sync, which lets users synchronize only the specific folders and files they need to access on the go. Each computer can be set up to sync a different set of folders and files to reflect different priorities.
Offline operation - With the new sync option, users can work on files from their desktop computers while offline. Users can edit or delete contents from files present in Zoho Docs folders, and those updated files will be automatically synced when the users go online. Documents created using Zoho Docs online editors can be modified when online.
In addition to the new file sync feature, Zoho Docs gains tighter functional integration between Zoho Writer, Zoho Sheet and Zoho Show. Zoho has also refreshed the Zoho Docs user interface to provide a consistent and cleaner appearance and to simplify the file management process.
The Zoho Docs for Desktop file synchronization feature is available immediately and free of charge. The Free Edition of Zoho Docs includes 5 GB of storage and unlimited users.
