Zoho Workerly | Custom Links and Buttons

Custom Links and Buttons

Links help you access third party applications and urls to acquire the desired information. This is an advanced feature that gives you the advantage of integrating content from other sites also in addition to your Workerly account, in just a single click. Here are some examples where custom links in Zoho Workerly can be used:


  • Accessing Twitter profiles of your contacts: All the contacts in your account can have a field where you specify their Twitter ID. By creating a link for Twitter, you can directly go to the contact's twitter profile in a single click. Example: The link can be: https://twitter.com/#!/$ {Contacts.Twitter ID}
  • View maps: Zoho Workerly provides the Locate Map option to view the address of the contacts in Google Maps. If you want to view the address location using some other applications, then you can define a link.

Note

  • The administrators and users with 'Customize Zoho Workerly' permissions in their profile can define links and set access permissions for them.
  • Users will be able to access the links in their account only if they have the permissions to do so. These permissions can be defined under Set Permissions section by users who have 'Customize Zoho Workerly' permissions in their profile while creating the links.
