It’s been quite some time since you heard from the Zoho DB & Reports team. We all have been working hard under the hoods to get Zoho DB & Reports better. Thanks to all of you for the overwhelming response to Zoho DB & Reports and for the great feedback you all have posted. All your feedbacks are really keeping us very busy. 😉
We have been incrementally adding new features and at the same time fixing important and glaring issues in the service. Just thought of summarizing the important features that had been rolled into Zoho DB & Reports in the past couple of weeks for you to keep tabs on.
Filters and Search in Tables:
This has been a major limitation in the service so far. Now you can filter or search data in the table using the “Filter ” option in the toolbar. We have provided a variety of options to filter the data based on the type of the column. We have also ensured that it is very easy to use and self-explanatory.
Support for data in Multiple Character set:
This feature has been one of the most sought after by users across the globe. You have it now in Zoho DB & Reports!!. Now users can import data in different character set and do any type of data manipulation and reporting.
New Chart types:
In our first release, we only had 5 types of chart supported (basic Pie, Line, Scatter, Bar and Table). Now we support 14 chart types including Web Chart, Stacked Bar, 3D Pie, 3D Bar, etc., Still lots more coming…
Groups support for easy Collaboration:
Now you could create a Group for each database and associate a set of users within it. View creation, sharing, etc., could now be done easily at the group level rather than at each user level. This would facilitate much easy collaboration in a team environment.
Highlights of the Group feature:
- Database owner will have the permission to create a Group and add/remove users to it
- Tables and Views can be shared to the Group (apart from individual users) by the Database Owner
- Users in the group could create their own views
- Users in the group could share their views with the group. (They cannot share it to members outside the group)
- Only Database owner will have the permission to share any view or table outside the group
More In-built Formula Functions:
We have also added a good number of inbuilt functions that you could use in your Custom Formulas when you add new Formula column in your Table or Tabular View.
Uploading more data into Zoho DB & Reports:
As the scale of usage of Zoho DB & Reports by users is expanding, we have been receiving requests to enable uploading more data and also to increase the maximum size limit. In case you have such a requirement, please contact us to support at zohodb dot com so that we could assist you.
Give the features a try and let us know your feedback as always. Apart from this, we have also fixed quite a number of issues since the first release.
Work is in progress on a number of interesting features which are coming up very soon. Stay tuned!
