Creating a Custom Solution

Start creating a custom solution either from scratch or by importing a .ds file from Zoho Creator. Specify a name for your solution and a prefix for the pre-defined domain.

  • Click "Create"

  • You will then be redirected to the "Dashboard" page of that solution. Click "Build Service" to navigate to the Sandbox environment.
  • You can now start building your application in Sandbox. The "Test this Application" option directs you to the Sandbox live mode, where you can view the app changes.
  • You may find this help guide useful for building a Zoho Creator application.


  • The permission sets "Read" and "Write" are created by default for each service, which can be viewed/modified in Permissions under Settings.
