Zoho CRM: Create your own Email & Inventory Templates

Zoho CRM offers templates for a range of document types, including quotes, invoices, and emails. However, your particular business model may require a specialized set of templates to operate efficiently. In that case, you can use extensions to expand or refine Zoho’s basic offerings. Extension-enabled templates in Zoho CRM are divided into two categories: Email templates  and Inventory templates 

Email templates

Communicating effectively with customers is crucial to building and maintaining a steady flow of business. To facilitate this, your CRM system can be customized with Email Templates, allowing you to send a single message to multiple recipients. With an email template, you can send a mass email to a group of leads/contacts, or you can set up a workflow rule that automatically sends an email notification to a particular CRM user when a specific condition is met.


Inventory templates

Inventory templates allow you to customize the print layout for your Quotes, Purchase Orders, Sales Order, and Invoices. You can edit fields, change the position of the company logo, customize the appearance of the layout, and alter the alignment of the items (SKUs).
