Description

Every organization has unique problems to solve, but one-size-fits-all software can't always do the job. Luckily, Zoho Creator lets anyone design applications that can reduce friction in their organization. We'll show you how. 

Learn How to Build Applications for Your Organization in Under Two Hours

  • Build Zoho Creator Applications
  • Collect information with online forms
  • Design reports to find or analyze information
  • Automate simple tasks like sending emails
  • Learn the basics of Zoho Creator's scripting language

We'll show you an application that would solve one of our instructor's real organizational problems. Then we'll reverse engineer it and show you how each part was made, so you can apply Zoho Creator's tools to your own organization. 

The idea for the application we'll build came from one of our instructors. He worked at a blood bank where it was extremely difficult to get time off. Employees had to request days off weeks in advance to have any hope of their manager approving them in time. If his organization had used the application we'll show you how to build, the manager would have been able to respond to vacation requests faster and the employees wouldn't have had to wait so long to find out if they could get time off. 

Who is the target audience?
  • This course is best for people who are new or intermediate users of Zoho Creator.
  • Advanced users probably won't get a lot out of it.

I joined Zoho fresh out of college, where I'd graduated with degrees in Modern Literature and Film Production. I've spoken in the annual Zoholics Developers event where we train people to use Zoho Creator at our office in Pleasanton, CA. 

I got started with Zoho Creator when I built an application to keep track of my ping pong scores. Since then, I've built Creator applications to manage content review at Zoho, deliver discount codes to customers, and calculate the price of business software.
