Managing Zimlets

Managing Zimlets
This chapter describes how to deploy, configure, and manage Zimlets™ on the Zimbra server.
Zimlets were created as a mechanism to integrate ZCS with different third-party applications to enhance the user experience from the Zimbra Web Client. When Zimlets are added to the ZCS, users can look at information and interact with the third-party applications from within their email messages.
With Zimlets, arbitrary message content can be made live by linking it with Web content and services on intranets or the Internet. Mousing over actionable content gives the user a real-time preview (subject to security constraints) that can be factored in decision making. For example, various Zimlets can be enabled to let users preview the following:
*
*
*

Several pre-defined Zimlets are included with ZCS and you can create other Zimlets so that users can interact with your company resources or other defined applications from the Zimbra Web Client.
For more detailed information about creating Zimlets, see the Zimlet Development section on the Zimbra Wiki.
