Google Apps and Podio

You can connect Podio to Google Apps, in order to get your email and attachments from Google Apps to the workspaces of Podio. For example you can then turn any email into a Podio task - bringing the email and any attachments with it.

Here's an intro video: 


Here's a visual guide as well:

Please be aware that our video above is showcasing an old version of the Podio Task Add-on. The new Task Add-on is using the newest Google technology and looks like this:



Can I login to Podio using my Google account? 

Yes. Ask your Google Apps admin about adding Podio. 

You can also make sure you have the same email on Podio as Google and then simply try to login with Google and we'll associate your accounts.

If my Podio Task Add-on is gone, how can I get it back?

You can get your Podio Task Add-on back, simply by clearing your browser's cookies. The Task Add-on will then appear again, below your emails.

Tip for Google Admin - allowing the Podio Task Add-on for some users only

Google allows its users to allow only a small group of users to have access to a service. This is very useful if you wish to allow a group of users in your organisation to use the Podio Task Add-on.

Only a user from your domain with administration privileges in Google Apps can make the changes below.

Talk to an administrator from your domain. The person has to log into the Google Apps administration panel located at  - where you can substitute in your own Google Apps domain at the end of the URL.

1. Under the "Users" tab, look to the Organizations section on the right. Click the arrow drop down menu, then click to add a new sub-organization. You can call it "Podio Users" or a similar name.

2. Return to the list of all your users.

3. Move only the users of Podio into the sub-organization.

4. Click the checkbox to the left of the user then click the 'Move To' button and select the 'Podio Users'.

5. Now you can turn on/off the specific services that users in that sub-organization require.

6. Under the parent Organization, switch off access to Podio to disable the Podio Task Add-on.

The changes may take up to 24 hours to take effect within Gmail.
