Zoho WorkDrive overview

What is Zoho WorkDrive?

Zoho WorkDrive is a cloud-based file storage, sync and collaboration solution for teams and businesses which provides a secure shared workspace from which to organize and manage all team files as well as a range of other features including team folders, real-time notifications, document drafting and publishing, file sharing with configurable access controls, desktop sync, versioning, analytics, and more. Native iOS and Android apps give users the flexibility to access and manage files on-the-go from their smartphone.

Zoho WorkDrive organizes and stores files in dedicated team folders for different projects, tasks, teams or departments. Team folders can be made public or private and users can assign appropriate roles to members based on their function, to ensure that only permitted members can read, write or comment on files. All members of a team folder are notified immediately when changes are made to any of the files in that folder. The check-in/check-out feature prevents other team members from editing a file that a user wants to work on alone.

Zoho WorkDrive also enables users to provide feedback by leaving comments in context on a teammate’s work. The draft feature allows users to draft or create files in the Zoho Office Suite before publishing. Bulk upload functionality is designed to give users access to files as quickly as possible, while sorting tools and advanced search options allow users to keep everything in order and locate files quickly and easily. Zoho WorkDrive supports over 160 file types, allowing users to view multiple different file formats. Synchronization technology enables users to sync their files and folders from their Zoho team folders directly to their desktop, so that users can work on their files when they are offline.

How To Take The Headache Out Of Driving Your Team.

Used daily for less than 6 months

Review Source: Capterra

My team really benefits from TeamDrive for all the reasons mentioned above. My experience with TeamDrive overall has been really good. The current Zoho TeamDrive support team is swift, to the point and friendly if you have a question of any kind. I have autism and am sometimes not that quick on the uptake, the team has been, and still is, really patient with me. Thanks team Zoho.

Pros
Having tried many tools out there, I can now say that I finally found an outstanding solution in Zoho Team Drive that suits and benefits my team. What did it for me are the instant notifications, no longer having to send files as attachments, the draft functionality is really handy. Separation of private and public space is included, which is not a given with other products I tested. What I liked most is the integration with other Zoho products. So, if you are already using Zoho products, I would recommend adding Team Drive to your account. Disclosure, I was part of the beta test. I mention this because my feedback was really appreciated and I could see small tweaks here and there being made in a fashionable time frame. Which gave me a good feeling. First proper testing and then release a new version. Basically how it should always be done, anywhere but not always happens. Zoho has solid but still rapid development in their DNA.

Cons
What I like the least about this software is fair but always hard to answer the question. Obviously, I like the software and would suggest everyone give it a try. What it is currently lacking but I know it is coming, so not an issue for me is what would be described as "Infinite Sync" that would make it possible to access your files in TeamDrive without them being physically on your computer. I think everyone would agree that is an awesome feature, coming to your TeamDrive in the near future. Can't wait for that one!

Zoho WorkDrive really a must need tool to manage the teams. The password protection for links and expiry enchnace the security one level up. The unlimited file versioning feature allows us to jump back to the any previous version of file. Two ways sync allows us to modify the files on the go and push notifications help other to know about the modification in your workspace.

Pros
Zoho WorkDrive is a collaboration tool to manage the files in more discipline manner. It provide the secure shared work place to shared the data and documents. The web interface simplifying user interface. Zoho WorkDrive is design in such as way which simplify the workflow in team and between the teams. Managing and administrations of team is easy to get your WorkDrive secure space with features like monitoring the activities and audit trail. Confidential data can be secure with access control where we can protect the data to get accessed or modified. Activity timeline help us to know the operation performed on our file.

Cons
Zoho WorkDrive is a fully featured collaboration tool but the only one thing I am disappointed with is the two factor authentication and dedicated account manager features is missing in the Starter and Team editions. As these are the most useful features which make the Zoho WorkDrive more robust tool.

Zoho WorkDrive provide the unlimited version of history with activities details that helps to view and restore to the previous version. The ultra fast upload is best in class. Integration with Zoho Office Suite help to view and edit the document like document, spreadsheets and presentations to edit the content online on any interface. Advance dashboard help to view the file activity, space used, pending invites and remaining licences.

Pros
Zoho WorkDrive is a great online file management for different teams collaborating together. Managed Team folder can have different level of access. Administering the Zoho WorkDrive is simple and easy as admin can monitor the peers activities and manage the roles and permission of files from Admin Dashboard. Admin Dashboard helps to get storage left details and number of users. File ownership can be transferred when an employee left the job role. Android app provide the push notification when any activities happen in your Team Folder. User can draft and schedule the publish time of the files also.

Cons
Zoho WorkDrive should work on Linux client so sync on server can also be configured. All advanced analytics option should also be provided in mobile application. Zoho WorkDrive should increase the stater pack file upload limit to at least two GB.

Works Well on Its Own, I Wish We Had More Integrations

Used daily for 6-12 months

Review Source: Capterra

Totally good option if you're using the Zoho Suite and getting it as part of Zoho One, but steer clear for a while to let it fully mature if you're already using another cloud storage solution.

Pros
Very intuitive and user-friendly. Works just like Google Drive, Dropbox, OneDrive, etc. The desktop app, after a few glitches early on, actually works really well (I'm on a Mac). I like how many options I have to gate access to certain files. It's really easy to get organized.

Cons
I wish there were more integrations, especially within the Zoho Suite. They rolled the product out over 8 months ago, and there still isn't an integration with Zoho Analytics.

5 TB and super fast in everything

Pros
It's secure, as many sharing options like public with time-based URL's (or permanent). The search is fast, has version control and meta data about how many times a file is downloaded or viewed.

Cons
The desktop app is downloading all files locally. I would be nice when you can stream the files because I don't want files physically on my machine.

Benefits

Zoho WorkDrive provides teams with a secure shared workspace from which to store and view files online.

Native iOS and Android apps give users the flexibility to access files on the go, via mobile devices.

Notifications serve to inform team members instantly when any changes are made to files or folders relevant to them.

Users can provide other team members with feedback by leaving comments in context on a teammate’s work.

Users can work offline as Zoho WorkDrive allows teams to sync files and folders from their Zoho team folders directly to their desktop, with any changes made automatically synced when the user is back online.

Zoho WorkDrive enables users to share files with external partners and suppliers, but maintain full control by setting access permissions, password-protected links and expiration periods.
