I went on the train the other day on a business trip and was wondering how I can log my expenses on the go.

Then I remembered that we use Zoho Expense within our business. Problem solved!

Zoho expense allows you to add expenses such as travel, meals and other costs whilst your on the go, using your mobile device.

So, keen to capture all of the expenses for the day before forgetting them or losing the receipts, I used to Zoho Expense to log my expenses by snapping a picture of the receipt and logging the basic information including the expense amount and category and date.

And with that, zapped it in to the Cloud in just a few clicks!

All of the expense information is updated in the central database and can be accessed immediately by the accoun...

Building on from the last blog on using Task and Task List templates, the next step is to make templates of the whole project.

This is something that is common place when working in one vertical for example, whereby your projects consist of the same sort of milestones, same tasks each time.

You can even create the same forum topics and upload the same documents, for example, 'kick off' type documents or user guides for training. All can go into the project template to save the Project Manager time later on.

Examples of where this function can be of use are SEO projects, web development projects, Marketing projects, construction projects and many more.

Here's how Project Templates are created...

Creating tasks is already pretty quick in Zoho Projects but there comes a time when a project manager will need to add similar, frequently occurring tasks on similar projects and then you want to do this as quickly as possible to minimise admin time.

An example may be if you are a web design company and need to add certain tasks or groups of tasks that recur in different projects, but maybe not in every project.

Zoho offer their sincerest apologies for the recent disruptions to their services.

The intermittent connections issues you may have faced are due to a "DDOS attack" by cyber hackers who at this stage remain unknown but is well described what this is exactly, in Zoho's own words:
