What?
This is an article to quickly demo a couple of snippets of code to display values in a custom related list as well as to display empty custom related lists.

Why?
Because I keep forgetting how to do this and it takes about an hour to go through the documentation and get a working solution.

How?
So the article below shows how to do this Zoho CRM and how to do it in Zoho Books...

What?
This is an article to hopefully resolve for you quicker than it took me, why a zoho.crm.searchRecords() returns some of the records but omits others.

Why?
The use-case was that we were creating a custom related list on a Zoho Finance > Sales Orders module but it wasn't finding all the Quotes related to this Sales Order.

How?
The quick answer is buried in Zoho documentation and due to the searchRecords function requiring it's 5th parameter which defaults to "not converted" records:
<variable>=zoho.crm.searchRecords(<module_name>,<criteria>,<page>,<per_page>,<search_value>,<connection>);

What?
This is an article to document how to have two submit buttons on a non-stateless form which both submit the form but one leaves the current record open while the other redirects to the reports view.

Why?
A client wanted a "Save" button on their form as well as a "Save & Close" button. The "Save" button would submit the form but keep the user on the record form. The "Save & Close" button would submit the form and then redirect the user to the report view of the records.

Zoho Creator: Two submit buttons on a non-stateless form: Result

Sounds simple but you can only set a form to redirect to one link and adding a HTML anchor link (<a href>) to the page won't help as you need to submit the form before redirecting the user.  A HTML <input type=submit> element to the page won't help either as you need to redirect the user to the specified report after submitting the form.

How?
Well as always, I'm going to cheat. My solution here was to simply repurpose a decision box field in Creator; then re-style it to look like a button; then add a workflow on click of this field.

What?
This is a quick article to help anyone encountering this gotcha: I have an integration field, if someone changes it, I want to save the value to the record immediately.

Why?
If you try to update an integration field via deluge with another integration field or even the same integration field, it will return an error
Unable to update the value to r_RecordDetails.Account. Line:(442)

How?
It is written in the documentation albeit difficult to find: an integration field returns an ID as a string. If you want to assign it to an integration field, you have to convert it to a number with .toLong().

What?
A super quick article to demonstrate how an idiot like myself can misread the documentation. This particular article shows you how to customize the search results or response from using zoho.creator.getRecordById().

Why?
My use case scenario is that I was trying to build a related list in Zoho CRM with a view on to related records in Zoho Creator. For some reason, only some random fields were being returned, all pretty much useless to me. Well the "for some reason" turned out to be because my detail view on the report was displaying a report/document template.

How?
The quick answer is:
Add the fields you want to the detail view of the report you are accessing.
Zoho Creator - GetRecordByID or SearchRecords missing data - Quick Answer

Zoho Creator: Receive JSON via a Shopify Webhook

What?
This is an article to document how to receive a JSON response from a webhook created in Shopify.

Why?
In this example, we want a webhook that whenever an order is made in Shopify, it tells our Zoho Creator app. Note that at the time of this article, API v1 is deprecated (so no authtokens) and API OAuth2.0 is in full swing... we're still going to cheat.

How?
1,2,3 steps really. First we're going to set up a Creator form to receive the JSON. Secondly, we'll create the endpoint URL for the webhook. And thirdly, we'll create the Shopify webhook.

What?
This is an article to document how to include a subform and rows while you are creating a record containing the subform.

Why?
The use case here is for a Quote Builder in Zoho Creator: Create a quote record and include a subform containing the line items. You may have tried code where you add a record first and then add the subform afterwards (insert into <form>[...]) but it can be done all in one go.

How?
Here's a use case example which you will need to adapt to your own but It should do enough (spacing has been added for demo purposes and to make it clearer).

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
