The last 2 Tuesdays saw

Zoho Reports
 and 

Zoho Wiki
 debuting at the Google Apps Marketplace. The star of this week’s Google Apps Release is Zoho Discussions.

Zoho Discussions is about making decisions from discussions. The members of a community can share ideas, report problems & ask questions, in addition to other discussions from a single point. Zoho Discussions brings everything under one roof to engage the community. 

Last week, we’d introduced 

private communities in Zoho Discussions
. Now, we’re extending this enhancement to Google Apps users as well. With Zoho Discussions’ private community, organizations can bring people together and make decisions quite easily.

Here are the highlights of Zoho Discussions – Google Apps integration,


  • Single Sign-On (SSO)

    : Once Zoho Discussions is installed in your Google Apps domain, your users can start using it conveniently right from the universal navigation bar in Google Apps.


  • Add Google Apps Users

    : The members of Google Apps account will be automatically added as members of the associated Zoho Discussion Portal.


  • Attach Google Docs Documents

    : The users can directly attach a Google document while posting a new topic/response in Zoho Discussions.



  • iGoogle Gadget

    : We also have a Zoho Discussions gadget which can be embedded right inside iGoogle, Gmail or Google Sites. 

Take a quick look at the Zoho Show slideshow below for more details.

With popular clients like
