Work Flow App?

Is there an app where you can define a work flow that automatically routes tasks from one individual to another?

Hey Ryan and all of you :)

I have news for the workflow functionality you have been waiting for:

This is just the first step towards real workflow functionality and we will be adding advancements going forward.

I would follow this up and ask for more control around the 'approval' function on a record. The ability to set an approver, email notifications, potentially via task generation, and the ability to use calculations in reports and referring apps that can use approval status as criteria.

that would be great if workflow is provided so that we can assign a doc with particular workflow according the doc type. the workflow should be able to handle within a workgroup or generic in public...

Yes, we are also looking for a tool to have a workflow. Would be great if it was inside Podio!

I'd also like to know if any progress has been made on this? Apps seem incredibly static and (dare i say it ) 'dumb' without the ability to tie an automated workflow engine in-between them. I.e. when a new item in app X is added, create a related record in app Y and notify person Z.

Hi.

We've been working on something for the past few months with the intention of providing a solution for automated workflow not only for Podio, but for other apps also.

Podio is a favourite of ours, and we really wanted some kind of workflow tool.

Please visit: https://flowplane.com. It's in private beta at this stage, but please register interest to have an account set up. We would really like to know what people think of it and how to improve it so they can have workflow for Podio.

I've just launched PodioFlow (http://www.podioflow.com) to enable workflow automation. It's still quite basic and in mostly in beta, but the foundation has been laid. PodioFlow will be evolving heavily over the next month.

I would appreciate any and all input on what it currently does, and what you guys want implemented in the future. Any feature requests that I end up implementing will give you a free account :-)
