My company is really pushing for a database/reporting option that will replace two messy but company critical spreadsheets. I'm the SOLO IT Director/Person but they decided to go around me to a building engineer who has C# experience to see if he can program it. But between his normal duties and the time needed to do this, he passed. But he lead them to Zoho Creator so they are turning it back over to me, despite some of my concerns with it. But it is what it is and I have to move forward with it (and a whole other discussion). My concerns about ZoHo were the cost per user for what little they will use it for and Zoho's slow support and forum moderation. I tried to look for options within our Office 365 Enterprise E1 that would be as easy as ZoHo but I couldn't.
The main spreadsheet has always shown the deliveries with the customer in the rows and details about the deliveries like colors, date, miles, dollars, etc in the columns. The current sheet separates the weeks of deliveries by a simple black line and at the bottom of the sheet is the year to date dollar totals to show the owner of the company. This is pretty much the sheet he drives off of to know how sales are. The other sheet shows what is yet needed to deliver a job. All the data I've so far imported into the database on Zoho will let me create these two reports and other options.
The problem I have is I can't get find documentation on how to do things in ZoHo to make it report like the spreadsheet. Sure, a lot of it is simple but finding documentation in ZoHo or getting a response in email or forums is difficult.
I'd love some opinions on ZoHo but I don't think my company will change from this now. So, overall, I'm looking on how to get more detailed reporting as described above and to make it print and look neat.
