Zoho Notebook Improvement

Zoho Notebook Improvement

I've observed this app over the past seven years, from its initial launch to the present day, and unfortunately, it hasn't become my go-to notebook app. To enhance its viability as a regular notetaking application, I'd like to offer the following suggestions to the Zoho Management:

1. Revise Default Note View Design:
The current setup, where a note opens as a separate window in both the web and desktop versions, is counterintuitive. This design restricts the view area, making navigation cumbersome. Consider implementing a multiple windows option and a left menu panel to create a more user-friendly experience. Editing and sorting notes should be seamless and intuitive.

2. Compact Notebook and Note List View:
The current appearance leans more towards a sticky notes app rather than a comprehensive notetaking application. A more compact and organized notebook and note list view would enhance the overall usability.

3. Improved PDF Management:
The app needs an overdue feature – better PDF management. Currently, it functions more as a PDF file manager than a notetaking app. Enhance its capabilities to allow users to insert PDFs into notes and perform lightweight annotations.

4. Integration of Whiteboards:
Incorporating whiteboard functionality would elevate the app's utility, especially for collaborative and visual notetaking.

5. Insert Audio in a Note:
Adding the ability to insert audio into notes would cater to users who prefer capturing ideas or information verbally.

6. Enhanced Tag Management:
Streamline the tag management process for better organization and retrieval of notes. A more intuitive tagging system can significantly improve user experience.

Optional Enhancements:

  1. Bookmarking in a Note: Allow users to bookmark specific points within a note for quick reference.
  2. Extract Highlighted/Annotated Text: Enable users to extract highlighted or annotated text for easy sharing or repurposing.
  3. Improved Stylus Support: Enhance the app's compatibility with stylus input for users who prefer handwriting.
  4. More Template Options: Introduce a variety of templates to cater to different notetaking needs.
  5. Bi-Directional Linking Between Notes
  6. OCR (Optical Character Recognition): Implement OCR functionality to make handwritten or printed text within images or PDFs searchable.
  7. Summarize Notes: Provide a feature to automatically generate summaries of lengthy notes for quick overviews.
  8. More Integrations.
I am expecting a comment on this from the Zoho Management. Zoho can consider creating a roadmap page detailing upcoming features, demonstrating a commitment to continuous improvement.
