Zoho, a company offering a full suite of SaaS applications, explains its mission in these terms: “We create beautiful software to solve business problems.” Sound familiar?
Zoho and Lucidchart have a lot in common. They both live in the cloud. They both aim to make your office more productive. They both value and place emphasis on communication and collaboration. These programs seem like a natural pairing—and we’re happy to announce that Zoho Connect’s integration with Lucidchart finally brings the two together.
Explaining a process? Troubleshooting a system over your group feed? Get your point across faster by visualizing your ideas in Lucidchart. Post your diagram directly to the network or group wall, or create a new diagram that you and your group member can begin working on together. Learn how to install and use this new integration below.
How to add this integration
If you’re a group admin, you can sync Lucidchart and Zoho Connect in a snap. Just go to your group page and follow these steps:
- Click “Settings” in the top-right corner of the page.
- Select “Integrations.”
- Click “+Add new integration.”
- Find Lucidchart and click “+ Add.”
From here, you’ll need to authenticate your Lucidchart account and select the group that will receive updates from this integration. You can also customize the name and image used for messages coming from the Lucidchart integration.
How the integration works
Once you have the integration set up, you can create new diagrams and share diagrams on the feed of the group you selected. Here’s how you can create a new document straight from Zoho Connect:
- Above the “What’s on your mind right now?” field, click the plug icon to access third-party integrations. Select Lucidchart.
- Type the name you want for your new document.
- Click “Create Lucidchart.”
- A message will appear in your feed. Click the document title to access your document in Lucidchart.
You can also post any diagram in your Zoho Connect feed when you want to communicate visually. Open your document, and in the top-right corner of the Lucidchart editor, simply click “Post to Zoho Connect.”
