We really appreciate Podio because of its flexibility, but at the same time this seems to be a major weakness in the sense that it's apparently not possible to define certain structures for workspaces and apps, and to keep those intact. We have several projects for which we have the following apps in the workspaces:
There are several Workflows tied into these. The app structures and workflows should be the same across all apps, with the exception of the workflow assignments being variable. Our problem is that we have 20+ projects, so when a change is made to one, we would have to manually update the others to keep the structure identical in all workspaces/apps. Doing this and verifying this is almost a full-time job in itself.
We would really appreciate the option to select a Master Workspace, or to link the workspaces or apps in a way that these changes are automatically applied to all slave/linked workspaces/apps.
This issue is so labor intensive that we are considering migrating to a less flexible project management system which has more defined structures and built-in workflows.
