  • Excel export/import: 20,000 rows. To import more than 20,000 rows, break your spreadsheet into multiple imports. To export more than 20,000 rows, use filters and export in pieces.

  • Calendar export: 1,000 future events 
  • Map fields: 250 maps per user per day (due to the Google API limit). This also applies when importing items from Excel. 
  • Invites:  To prevent spam, we have the following limits for each user for each day:
    • Send messages to 5 email addresses, if the emails are not already on Podio
    • Share items with 25 email addresses, if the emails are not already on Podio
    • Create tasks for 10 email addresses, if the emails are not already on Podio
    • Invite up to 100 email addresses, if the emails are not already on Podio
  • Comments: 2,500 comments on an individual item
  • File Attachments: 200 files attached to a single item or task
  • Notifications: 10 notifications for a specific reference in a 2 hour period.

General recommendations to improve speed and performance of your apps:

  • Items: We recommend maximum 500,000 items in one app
  • Fields: We recommend maximum 100 fields in one app
  • Date fields: We do not recommend using the calendar view "show in calendar" date field option for large apps. If you are creating an app planned for many items, make sure to uncheck the "show in calendar" option for the date field. Removing the items from the calendar will improve performance of your app.
  • Apps: Adding a large number of fields and calculation fields will decrease the performance of your app and make it run slower.
