Once the extension is installed, it will take you to the Extension details screen.
You will get a popup on the top right corner asking you to authorize your account for Zoho OAuth service. Click on Authorize and accept the permissions requested in the window that opens.
You should get a success message in the corner when this is done.
Here you need to set the Default Site ID to create a Quote or a Job. A Site and a Customer are mandatory fields for creating a Quote or Job. In the event the Customer does not have a Site, the Default Site configured will be linked to the Quote/Job instead
You will need to create a default site in simPRO, retrieve the Site ID and then add the ID in this field. You can also choose another Site if you wish, simply add that Site’s ID in this field.
This is used to connect your Zoho Desk account with your simPRO build URL.
For example, www.syncezy.simprosuite.com. In this example, we choose “syncezy” as the value to enter.
This field is used to enable Multi Company syncing. Only “Yes” or “No” are acceptable values. Yes if you want to configure simPRO Multi Company, No if you don’t or if you have a single company.
If you don’t have a multi-company setup, enter 0 - company name here. If you wish to link only one company, you will need to enter the company ID - company name (eg. 4 - SyncEzy).
If you have multi-company in simPRO, enter in this format: company ID - company name (eg. 6 - SyncEzy). For more companies, add the same with a comma separator (eg. 6 - SyncEzy, 7 - Zoho,..., etc).
simPRO Company IDs can be found by going to simPRO > Setup > Company
Note: Avoid using commas and dashes in the company name as these are specifically used as delimiters.
This helps us to communicate with simPRO. Navigate simPRO->Setup->API->Application > Create Application. Enter the following values:

Email Address: <Your Email Address>
Description: Client application for Desk-simPRO
Authentication method: API Key
You have to copy the API Key and paste it into this field in the configuration. You can also write to firstname.lastname@example.org if you need help with this.

Click Save when all configurations have been entered.
