Discover what integrations have already been done in Zyncro and what ideas we've come up with for development. However, it doesn't necessarily have to be one of these... so the sky's the limit! As you will see in the terms and conditions of our challenge, one of the aspects we value most is creativity.
What we have already done...
Doolphy is a project management cloud solution. The first stage of the integration allows the owner of a group on Zyncro to add a project via Doolphy and lets all participants view in the activity stream the updates on the project. On a second stage, the project participants (not necessarily the same as the group participants) are able to update the project or parts of it without leaving the Zyncro platform.
With the integration of Google Calendar and Zyncro, you can view all your events in a calendar displayed in the right panel on Zyncro. You can also create events from Zyncro that will be automatically saved onto your Google calendar.
Zyncro and SharePoint
Zyncro developed a connector in order to add a social layer to SharePoint, allowing users to view and interact with the Zyncro Activity Stream without leaving the SharePoint platform. It also incorporates Single Sign On and integrated search. On the next stage a file management integration will allow users to add a file from SharePoint to a Zyncro group.
What else can you do?
Any Google Gadget can be accessed from Zyncro to add management features, information or track external contents in Zyncro. Want to try your hand at embedding a Google Gadget in the Zyncro interface?
Hootsuite has an open API and we think it would be a great idea to have an integration which allows community managers to post on the Zyncro activity stream from Hootsuite. In this case, Zyncro would be another stream on the Hootsuite dashboard. Of course, any other functionalities are also welcome!
This integration delivers Salesforce.com activity to Zyncro. Users track the progress of accounts, opportunities, campaigns within the Zyncro Activity Stream per group/department.
The proposals given here are just that, IDEAS! Remember, one of the key aspects that the jury will value highly is innovation and originality! Dare to be different!
