Zoho is an ecosystem of about 40 different business applications from CRM to Email Marketing to Project Management, etc. Part of the ecosystem is Zoho Creator, Zoho Creator is a development platform and offers the flexibility to develop customized applications to suit each and every business. All the other applications that are part of the Zoho Platform can be customised, but do not provide the flexibility for full-fledged development. Fortunately, the Zoho Platform allows one to overcome the limited customisation of the other Zoho apps by integrating Zoho Creator with various other applications in the Zoho suite through webhooks and APIs and this hugely expands the ways in which one can exploit the Zoho Platform.
As 1 Cloud Consultants is a Zoho Creator Certified Solution Provider, we only use Zoho Creator Certified Developers to work with you to develop a Specifications Document (SD) of what you need your app to be. A typical Zoho Creator SD would include:
- Providing some background about the business and activities that the organisation is involved in
- Identifying the different types of data that needs to be captured in the application and the different ways in which the data will be captured
- Listing the various reports, dashboards and custom views that will be required by those who will be tracking the data and acting on it
- Detailing the workflow from start to finish in terms of who needs to do what in a sequential manner and identifying the triggers and alerts that need to be set to initiate the next step when a particular action has been completed.
- Describing the number of users who will need to access the application and the access permissions in terms of who needs to have access to what parts of the application. The access permissions will enable people to only see what they need to see and not any other data or parts of the application.
- Identifying if a Customer Portal would be required or not with or without domain mapping.
- Understanding whether the application would be accessed via a PC or on mobile devices.
Our development team can work with you to develop the Zoho Creator SD.
