Enable Push Notifications

You can choose how you want to be notified of CRM actions on your device. Enable or disable Sound and Vibration options as required in the Notifications section of the Settings page.

Notification Channel Support

You probably receive countless app notifications on your phone, making it difficult to spot the important ones, and if you miss a CRM notification, you could lose out on a lead or deal. We use notification channel support to combat this and help you stay in control of what notifications you receive.

Notification Channel is supported for Android Version 8.0 and higher.


To customize your notifications

  1. Tap the icon in your Zoho CRM app.

  2. Tap Settings.

  3. Tap Notification Categories in the Notifications section.

  4. Customize the settings as required.

Image Upload Resolution

Setting the resolution of images will determine the compression size of all images uploaded to CRM. Choose from four image resolution options: Low, Medium, High, and Normal. By default, the resolution is set to be Normal.


To change the image upload resolution

  1. Tap the icon in your Zoho CRM app.

  2. Tap Settings.

  3. Tap Image Upload Resolution under Image Compression.

  4. Tap the resolution type.


Configure Smart View Settings

The Smart View is a mobile-friendly view that is available for any module in the Zoho CRM Android app. It mirrors the Quick Create view in layouts. It is available in four situations: Add Record, Update Record, Details View, and Related Lists.

It's called the Smart View I because it automatically displays only the information that is relevant to you. For example, let's say you have several fields with empty values in the Details View of a record. The default view would show the full list of fields, including the empty fields. The Smart View automatically skips the empty fields and only displays the fields with values. This way, you do not waste time scrolling up and down your screen looking for relevant information; it is right there in the Smart View.


To enable Smart View as the default view type

  1. Tap the icon in your Zoho CRM app.

  2. Tap Settings.

  3. Enable or disable the Smart View in each of the four locations in the Smart View section.

Add Record: Only fill in the most important fields while creating a record.

Update Record: Update only what is important to you when editing a record.

Details View: Skip all empty fields and show only the fields which have values.

Related Lists: Push all empty related list items to the bottom of the page and only show those which contain data on the top of the page.

You can also choose which tab is displayed by default when you open a record's details page. The Related tab is shown by default, but you can switch this off to show the Details tab and then swipe left to manually slide to the Related tab.




Reset and Erase Settings

You can use the Reset option to update the Zoho CRM app with the latest data from the desktop version, including custom modules, components, record data, and more. The app settings you have configured on the device such as themes, grouping, and sorting will not be changed. Any data you added to the app which has not been synced with the desktop version will be removed.


If you use the Reset and Erase Settings option, all the app settings configured on the device such as themes, grouping, and sorting will be erased and set to the defaults. The app is then updated with the latest data from the desktop version so that you have a clean slate to work with.
