What is Zoho Connect?

Zoho Connect is an employee intranet for businesses that unifies people, information, and tools they need to a single platform. Connect helps the entire organization to share ideas, hold real-time discussions, and work together.

This article covers the most simple, basic steps to help you get started with the platform.

Like and reply to a Post

  1. Like someone's post and let them know you are in agreement, or as a sign of appreciation or acknowledgement.
  2. Use comment to share your thoughts on the post.
  3. @mention someone in your comment to get their attention. Once you @mention a person, they will receive a notification.
