It has been two years since we announced Zoho Mail’s eWidget, which brings a multitude of Zoho and third-party extensions under one roof. Mail’s eWidget makes multitasking easier by bringing your favorite applications into your inbox. Since its launch, we’ve continuously worked to add new extensions to help you achieve a more seamless workflow.
Now, we’re back to announce the latest additions to Zoho Mail’s eWidget. Besides being integrations that will help boost your productivity, these are also some of the most frequently requested extensions.
While most of your everyday business communication is probably one-on-one, you might sometimes need to send out personalized emails to multiple recipients. It could be interview letters to candidates during a hiring round or cheerful holiday greetings to your colleagues and customers. Adding in the individual information of each recipient and sending these emails one at a time can be tedious.
Our Mail Merge eWidget extension helps you send personalized messages to a group of people all at once. You can use an email template and a source file to send out these emails in a few simple steps:
Pick or create the email template you wish to use. Import the source file with the recipient information. Start sending!
The placeholders in your email template will be replaced with the corresponding information from your source file so you can send it out to all the recipients with just a click. You can even view a report summary of your mail merges in your Merge history.
Take a look at the Mail Merge help documentation for more information on the extension.
Run online training sessions from inside your mailbox. With the Zoho ShowTime extension, you can create and manage your face-to-face and remote sessions directly from Zoho Mail. The contextual integration makes it easy to automatically convert your emails into training sessions.
You can also upload session materials, handouts, and create polls for your ShowTime sessions from the eWidget in Zoho Mail, as well as view a detailed summary of your past sessions.
Coming soon! Using ServiceDesk Plus as your IT help desk software? You can soon create, view, or manage SDP requests without leaving your Zoho Mail inbox. You can access information from your emails to contextually create requests in the SDP extension.
In addition to searching for a request using request ID, status, or subject, you can also close, pick up, edit, or assign existing requests from the SDP extension in Zoho Mail.
We will keep working to bring more applications to Zoho Mail’s eWidget. In the meantime, give these new extensions a try and leave your feedback in the comments section. We’d also love to hear which applications you wish to see in our eWidget next!
Until next time, stay safe and stay happy!
Note: These extensions are currently only available in the US region. They will be made available in other regions soon.
