Zoho’s product custom fields

Zoho Inventory products can have multiple custom fields. You can request that some or all of these fields be stored as product custom fields in Onsight and they will then display in the Onsight app for sales reps and customers to view.

Product images

Some of your products in Zoho Inventory might have images. If there is no image in Onsight, we will copy the Zoho Inventory image to Onsight. If there is already an image in Onsight, we leave the existing image in place. If you upload new images into Onsight, they will not be replaced.

If you want to replace the images that are in Onsight with new images from Zoho Inventory, you can delete the existing images in Onsight and the new Zoho images will automatically be copied to Onsight.
