Cons of Zoho

  • Tutorials require improvement in terms of clarity and usefulness for users.
  • The documentation and help videos can be confusing and overly technical at times, making it difficult for some users to understand and use the product effectively.
  • The process for scheduling calls can be cumbersome, leading to frustration and delays in communication between users.
  • The reminders feature needs more options to accommodate users’ needs, such as the ability to set reminders for one week, two weeks, or other specific time periods.
  • There is no individual email tracking available, which can be limiting for users who want to track the performance of their email campaigns at a more granular level. The current tracking only allows for monitoring of mass campaigns, which may not provide enough insight for some users.
