2015 - Zoho Projects gets the power of Zoho Docs to take on Smartsheet

The Documents module in project management app Zoho Projects just got a big boost. You can now create rich documents, spreadsheets and presentations right here and work on them collaboratively with your team. This update powered by Zoho Docs lets you do a lot more and here are some of the benefits. All these documents can be co-created; i.e. more than one person can work on them at the same time. You can chat with all the collaborators as you go, right within the document window. Getting feedback is easy; each letter in your text documents and each cell in your spreadsheets can be commented on. An inbuilt versioning system lets you view the changes a document has gone through, and if needed revert to an older version.
