This is an email I sent to Podio a while ago. I thought I'd share it here on the forum:
Our team is falling in love with Podio more and more.
There's only one thing that's missing from Podio: Project Boards.
That's why we also love Trello.
Up until 30 minutes ago, I thought: "I'll just wait until there's an integration of Trello and Podio."
But 30 minutes ago, I saw the light because of a remark our new traffic manager made.
I want to share my insights with you, so you can put it on the top of the feature request list. ;)
A new App view: Board Layout
This layout is only available if your app makes use of the building block Category *AND* if you select "Only one" for Number of Possible Choices *AND* if you check the checkbox for that Category "Use for Board Layout"
The categories are the Columns of the board layout.
Inside each column you see the items from that App with that category.
You could use the badge layout for the "cards" in each column. (It would be even nicer if you could select the fields to show on the card/badge)
You can drag and drop the cards from one column to the other, in doing so changing the category.
You can drag and drop the cards within the column to sort them in any order.
That's it! You effectively now have Trello on steroids. There's absolutely no reason not to use Podio anymore if you add this board layout.
This would be so utterly sweet!
You can filter your board layout on cards that only reference a certain other App item (Say a specific project)
You could have a board of boards! One board with the projects that move from category to category, and one board with all the project tasks that move from category to category, and because you can filter those tasks on a specific project, that board acts as several boards rolled up into one!
