You can choose the Sign in option for your users as Zoho, Google, GoogleApps or Yahoo. The default sign-in option is Zoho.

A zoho account for each user will be automatically created and they need not sign-up for zoho.
If the sign-in option is selected as Zoho, the application owner can choose to show or hide the federated login options like Google, Yahoo and GoogleApps, in the Signin dialog. Selecting Yes will display the federated logins in the Zoho login page. Selecting No will hide the federated logins from the Zoho login page, allowing users to signin only through Zoho.

If a shared user is configured as a "developer", the developer's email ID will be listed in the "Enable Admin Access to" drop down of the Application Settings dialog, for all the applications. To provide edit permission to the developer to edit a specific application, the owner should go to the Application Settings of that particular application and under the dropdown "Enable Admin Access to" choose the developer's ID.
