For Zoho Services only:

I'm actually part of a bigger team at Ascent Business Solutions where we have support technicians and project consultants. Support is for smaller technical fixes but this can include developments, reports or integrations; depending on the size of the task. Projects are for more time-consuming developments such as revamps of the Zoho Suite of apps or on-site training. The advantage of a team is that if I am out-of-office for a day or so, there is always someone at Ascent Business Solutions who can deal with any queries/issues you may have.

Our support rates can be found and purchased at A support bundle doesn't have an expiry date. So whether we can do what you want within the bundle and a year later need further support, if there are minutes left on the bundle then there is no additional charge.

Our project rates for bigger developments can be found at and will involve a dedicated project consultant along with developers who will hold your hand through the development process.

If you want help building a solution for one of the Zoho Apps in the Zoho Suite, contact us on 0121 392 8140 (UK) or by email at You can also visit our website at

I regularly build and specialize in 2-way API integrations for Xero, Shopify and eBay.

Zoho Analytics: Set Up Widget Displaying Sales Person

A quick article to display a value in a column in a widget in Zoho Analytics.

Because I keep forgetting how to do it.

I've done this for a query that amalgamated all the deals against a deal owner and needed to repeat this for all the invoices against a sales person.

It adds to the effect on loading the page that a widget has clearly defined values based on the filters I select on a dashboard.

First you will need a table or query that has a bunch of columns and rows with one of the columns containing the sale person name. Something like the following:
Zoho Analytics Setup Widget - Query Header

With these kind of columns available to you:
  1. Click on Widget in the top right
  2. Under "Data Column", select any field in your table/query which is not the one to display
  3. Under "Group By", select the field that has the value you want to display.
  4. Under "Show Value As", select Max
Zoho Analytics Setup Widget - KPI Widget Editor - Data

Then click on the "Settings" tab and do the following:
  1. Under Primary Value - Label, enter the static text you want to display above the sales person (eg. "Sales Person")
  2. Alongside the Value field, enter ${Sales Person}.LABEL
  3. Under Label: Display 'Unknown' as, enter a dash/hyphen to indicate not known.
  4. Click on the button Apply
Zoho Analytics Setup Widget - KPI Widget Editor - Settings

Then on the dashboard, if you map your user filter, this will produce a widget similar to the following (ignore my sales person filter "Unknown"):
