Multiple Enhancements in Zoho Notebook

Zoho Notebook | January 15, 2009 | 2 min read

Our Zoho Notebook team rolled out several enhancements to the app making it even better. I’d like to highlight some of the new changes.

Linking between Notebooks

Linking is one of the most requested features. In the text object, we now added the link option. You can not only link externally to any URL, but you can also link to pages with your other notebooks. This linking will also work in published books and pages.

Audio & Video Recording

We had to take down Audio and Video Recording capabilities (offered through a partner) earlier. We are glad to say that the recording capability is back in Notebook. You can now record Audio & Video within Notebook. Your previous recordings will continue to work fine.

Zoho Chat Integration

You might have noticed our char bar in the bottom in other Zoho Apps like Mail, Business, Docs etc. This Chat bar now makes its way into Zoho Business as well for consistency. We hope you’ll like this.

No more Custom Scroll bars

This is not a feature addition, but a feature removed for better experience. If you remember our previous design, we had custom scroll bars on the side and at the bottom. We replaced these custom toolbars with standard browser scroll bars. Removing the vertical scroll bar leaves more space on the right. So we now use that space to display all your notebook pages on the right instead of restricting to 4 pages we had earlier.

Additional Changes

  • If you use our RSS Object, it now accepts ATOM feeds as well.  This object previously suppored 0.91, 0.92, 1.0 & 2.0 versions of RSS.
  • We added additional buttons in the text object for Font Color & Background Color.
  • For basic text object (the one on the right) we added Font Color, Font Size, Font Family & Background Color

We hope you like these changes. There are many other exciting changes coming to Notebook. Stay tuned.

    yonjait may be a pure coincidence but Zoho announced tons of new enhancements to their Notebook product on the same day when Google decided to stop development of their own

    @danny We have Skype integrated in Zoho Notebook. Go to Preferences (top right) and specify your SkypeID. If users you share your notebook also do this, you’ll be able to see each others Skype status at the bottom right.

    @Sergio We do have BOLD for the text object. When you add a Text Object, you’ll see this as the first option.

    Yet STILL NO BOLD… The most BASIC, most Common and most Useful missing feature. Frustrating.

    Interesting timing, now that it’s been determined that Google Notebook will no longer accept new users (and will probably be going away completely). Good for you guys for continuing to develop the product.
