Navigate like a Pro with Quick Actions
Our mobile apps are designed to be intuitive and easy to use. However, there are some instances where you can't afford to waste time by fumbling around different menus. Quick Actions can help with this. Simply long press (or 3D Touch) an app icon on your homescreen or app drawer to bring up a list of app shortcuts like opening the customer or subscription creation pages, right over the app icon!
Availability: Android and iOS.
Peek and Pop Your Way Through Long Lists
Scrolling through lists to find information about a customer in a hurry? Next time, try pressing down on a particular customer name from the list page to get a
of extra information like their unused credits and outstanding receivables. While doing this, you can also swipe up to view a list of quick actions such as sending payment reminders and creating subscriptions. If you'd like to view all of their information, press deeper on the preview to
into their details page. These actions work for the Customers, Credit Notes, Invoices, Products and Transactions modules.
Generate and Share Links for Your Invoices and Hosted Pages
Our mobile apps make it easy to share
with your customers--or anyone for that matter. Anyone who has the generated invoice links can view, pay, download and print your invoice. You can also set an expiration date for the invoice link, after which, it will no longer be functional. The link to a plan's
can also be shared quickly with a prospective customer.

Share Files Easily with AirDrop

and links to
to nearby iOS and MAC devices--perfect for walk-in customers or on-spot registrations for your subscription service.
Protect Your Data with a Passcode
In case multiple users in your organization use the same mobile device, you can prevent unauthorized access to the Zoho Subscriptions mobile app by locking it down. You don't have to limit it to a passcode either. Once set up, you can use your phone's existing unlock methods like fingerprint recognition/Touch ID and Face ID. You can also set an interval during which, the app will not lock itself. This can prevent locking and unlocking the app multiple times within a short period--which can be quite bothersome.
