We just rolled out an important update in Zoho Sheet. The key features include

– Collaborative Editing
– Zoho Chat Integration
– Extended API
– Open Document Sheet Support

Collaborative Editing:

With this update, multiple users can work on the same spreadsheet at the same time. When you open a spreadsheet that someone is working on, you’ll see a small message informing this.

From then on, all the changes made by multiple users will be reflected immediately.

Zoho Chat Integration

If you want to chat with the users working on the sheet, just click on the chat icon (chaticon.jpg) at the bottom right corner and it’ll open up the chat interface.

APIs

We also extended our APIs for Zoho Sheet for reading more granular data like a cell or cell range. APIs are now available in 3 formats – XML, CSV and JSON (also JSONP). Complete API documentation is available here.

The following video demonstrates these functionalities.

Do give these new features a try and let us know what you think.

Update: I forgot to mention another significant feature we added with this update – OpenDocument Sheet (.ods) Support. Now you can import and export .ods sheets into Zoho Sheet. Thanks Samy for observing this.
