What?
This is an article of code snippets to query a Zoho Bookings instance from within Creator. This one focuses on getting the available slots.

Why?
This is for a Creator app which had a form to allow customers to make a booking based on the configuration and appointments in a ZohoBookings instance.

How?
The getAvailableSlots function requires as parameters according to documentation

What?
A super quick article to demonstrate an example where we create a project with custom fields.

Why?
At time of print, the documentation on the Projects API would only show responses rather than requests. Sure it lists fields that are required in the request but not a sample request packaged to be sent.

How?
Let's assume that my custom fields have as identifiers UDF_CHAR8 (which is a Zoho ID) and UDF_CHAR7 (which is a text/string name field).

What?
A super quick article to remind me how to generate and send a CSV as an attachment to an email.

Why?
Because I often get casually asked "oh and can you archive the data and email it to me every month"...

How?
Rather than just babble on about it, here's the code, replace what you need just noting that I'm enclosing each value with double-quotes because the values might have commas and someone may want to open this in Google Sheets or Microsoft Excel:

What?
This is an article to show you how to use triggers but also how to stop them. We only found this an issue when using REST API v2.1 but also to show you how to configure triggers when using createRecord or updateRecord.

Why?
We had a Creator app updating a CRM record which in turn had a workflow to update the Stage in Creator (so a user can change the stage in CRM and it would reflect this in the equivalent Creator record). There was also a workflow that ran when the Creator record was updated to update its changes to CRM. It was actually causing a loop which used up all the API calls.

How?
You might already be familiar with some of the trigger options below but one that worked was initially guessed as "none" but then later found in the documentation could also be an empty list [].

What?
This is a quick article documenting how to update custom fields in a line items or product details section of a transactional module such as Quotes, Sales Orders or Invoices using code: Zoho Deluge.

Why?
At time of print, Zoho had recently introduced the ability to have custom fields in your line items, alongside the product name, list price, quantity, tax, etc. In the example below, we have added a column called "Group Name" in the CRM Quote module as per the following screenshot:
Populating Custom Field in a Quote Line Item

How?
Again at the time of this article, this is only modifiable when using REST API v2.1. We are going to update the field with label "Group Name" but API name "Grouping" in a list item column.

What?
This is an article to demonstrate how to log a time event under a Zoho Projects Issue using code (Zoho Deluge) rather than the graphical user interface (GUI). Note this would probably be similar to when trying to enter a time against a project Task but this article is focused on getting this working against Project Issues. Also note, we will refer to Project Issues in this article, but in the backend code, Zoho refer to Issues as "Bugs".

Why?
At time of this article (Apr-2021), we could not find a working example that could allow us to do this. I have provided some links at the end of this article for you which we tried to use but only helped us out about half-way, the rest we guessed on our own:
Zoho Projects - Add Time Log to an Issue Using Deluge - Projects Issue Time Log
Our use case, is that we are developing a Zoho Creator app that will help staff log time and then push the creator record to Zoho Projects.

How?
For the following example, you will need to have setup a Zoho Oauth Connection with the appropriate authorized scopes and have access to all related systems such as Zoho Projects and the originating app (in this example, Zoho Creator).
