PLEASANTON, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Zoho today announced the production availability of Zoho Calendar, its online application for scheduling, managing and tracking events and appointments. As it moves out of beta, Zoho Calendar gains a number of features designed to support power users, including the ability to import, share and subscribe to data from other Zoho and third-party calendars. A slideshow presentation of Zoho Calendar is available at http://bit.ly/aWRj9l.

“Several Zoho Apps need calendaring functionality. We wanted to create a calendar that is one of the best in the market first, and then integrate that with other Zoho Apps. We believe we created a solid application now. We’ve added a number of integration points to Zoho Calendar, so users with multiple online calendars can gain a single, unified view of their overall schedule with Zoho Calendar,” said Raju Vegesna, Zoho evangelist.

“For instance, Zoho Calendar integrates with the calendars in Zoho CRM and Zoho Projects as well as third-party calendars such as Google Calendar. And the integration works both ways, so users can populate those calendar applications with Zoho Calendar data. Going forward, we plan to integrate Zoho Calendar tightly into other, existing Zoho applications.”

Inside Zoho Calendar

Highlights of the production version of Zoho Calendar include:

  • Multiple Calendars – Users can create and manage multiple calendars that are automatically color coded.
  • Share calendar – Users can share their calendars with other users, granting them different levels of access, including the ability to view free/busy times, view calendar events with details, and create and edit events.
  • Subscribe to calendar – Users can subscribe to calendars from other Zoho applications as well as third-party calendars, including Google Calendar. As a result, events on those calendars will display in Zoho Calendar. Subscription (iCal) support is bi-directional, so users may display Zoho Calendar events in third-party calendars. Zoho Calendar also has built-in holiday calendars for 30 countries which users can subscribe to.
  • Import calendar – Users can import calendars from specific URLs such as sports or entertainment calendars. By copying and pasting the URL for the calendar file into Zoho Calendar, the associated events will display in Zoho Calendar.
  • Embed calendar – Users can embed their calendar in multiple sites. Zoho Calendar includes several, customizable templates that let a user display a modified version of his or her calendar on a website or blog.
  • “Agenda” view – In addition to day, week, work week, and month views, Zoho Calendar offers users an agenda view which lists all events for the current quarter. Users can also scroll through past and future quarters.
  • Plugin for Microsoft Office – The Zoho Calendar Plugin for Microsoft Office establishes bi-directional synchronization of events in multiple Microsoft Outlook calendars and in Zoho Calendar.
  • Mobile Access – Zoho Calendar is optimized for all standard mobile browsers.
  • Natural Language Processing – Zoho Calendar allows users to create events by typing in natural language. The Calendar is smart in processing the text and adding the event automatically. Ex: Typing an event like ‘Dinner tomorrow at 7pm’ will add an event in your calendar automatically.
