What is New in CRM Functions?

Hello everyone!

We're delighted to share that Functions in Zoho CRM have had a few upgrades that would happen in phases.

Phase 1
An all new built-in editor for better user experience and ease of use. 
ETA: In a couple of days.

Phase 2
Support to write the function code in Java, Python, and NodeJS.
ETA: Rolled out in a phased manner.

Updated Built-in Script Editor
The built-in script editor has now undergone a major upgrade.
Here are the old and new screenshots of the editor.

Old Deluge Editor

New Deluge Editor

  • The editor opens in full screen that provides better readability.

  • There is a dedicated console to view the output as well as read the errors, if any.

Multi-language Support
Do you want to write your functions in a language other than Deluge?
Zoho CRM will support functions written in Java, Python, and NodeJS.

You can choose to code your logic in the all new built-in editor or upload a zip file containing the code written in any programming language editor (Eclipse, for example).

Here is a sneak-peek at the new My Functions tab under Setup > Developer Space > Functions

As you can observe, there is a new drop-down to select the programming language you want to write your code in.

Below are screenshots of the Function editor for each programming language.






We will keep you updated when this feature goes live.

If you have any questions, please write back to us.
