Forums | Online Help | Zoho Projects


If your team needs to communicate outside of the office, across vast distances, or with a lot of people, a forum is the perfect facilitator.

Through forums, exchanging information with colleagues can make big ideas come alive.

  2. Interact with team members scattered across the globe.
  3. Escalate critical bugs and get a instant solutions from experts.
  4. Tap the knowledge, skills, and ideas in your team from a single place.
