Integration of Zoho web applications for Plone CMS

Project description


mfabrik.plonezohointegration provide tools to integrate Plone CMS with Zoho web applications and their data.

The main feature of this add-on product is a new contact form, available as standalone and a portlet, which will directly deliver contacts to Zoho CRM where your sales representatives can pick them up and handle according to their workflow.


  • Control panel to set Zoho username, password and API key required for integration communication
  • Contact form integration with Zoho CRM. All contacts are automatically converted to Zoho leads. The sales person of your organization can screen contact submissions in Zoho CRM and dial/email to persons interested in your products.

The features are done using mfabrik.zoho library for Python.


Add the following to your buildout.cfg:

eggs =

Rerun buildout.

Restart Plone.

Go to Plone Site Setup.

Run add-on installer for Zoho CRM integration.

Add your Zoho credentials in Zoho settings under Site Setup.


As the writing of this, trunk version (0.5.0+) is needed to make this add-on fully functional. Otherwise the form behavior might not be nice.

Plone 3 and beta components

This add-on product uses software components which are not yet officially deployed for Plone 3 (and maybe never will) like To make these components work correctly you probably need to use “good-py version pindowns” in your buildout.cfg.

The form is also available as a portlet Zoho Contact Form. We suggest that you add this portlet as a content-type portlet on all of your Pages and Folders.
