    Same issue here, I totally agree. The deliverables app is useless for me for that very same reason

    Here, here. My workspaces have multiple projects in them. Each project has multiple deliverables associated with it. I should be able to associate a task with an app item like a project or a deliverable. Having all tasks tagged only to a Workspace misses multiple levels of granularity. . .

    Well, I just missed the obvious. . . When I created a task outside of a specific project or deliverable I only saw workspaces listed in the drop-down menu. But, once I searched for specific names, I saw all the projects, deliverables etc.

    Michael,

     I had trouble following your example, but I think Benjamin's second post should have the answer if I understood correctly.  However, I do find the 'auto-complete' for specific project names, deliverable names, etc. to be inconsistent / slow in my experience (the list of suggestions seems to disappear if i backspace over a character for example).

    Hey all,

    Michael you can find a short video describing how you connect apps, app items and Tasks here: https://help.podio.com/entries/21670346-using-tasks-and-apps-together

    In Podio we think of tasks more as actions related to a context whereas the Deliverable is the overall milestone or real task to solve. Read more here about tasks in Podio: http://blog.podio.com/2011/06/10/podio-and-gtd/

    Hope this can help you. 

    Cheers,

    Sara - Podio

    I don't even understand the term "deliverables".  Exactly what is it used for?  Is it just a list of tasks?

    Ginger, I'm 100% with you.  I don't get the different between a task and a deliverable.  If a deliverable is not a task and it's a project, then why have a project separate as well?

    Try thinking of it this way:Project (example:  2013 Rebranding and Logo Development)     Deliverable (example:  Color exploration findings)          Task (example:  Research color trends)          Task (example:  Create primary and secondary color pallets)     Deliverable (example:  Logo design options          Task (example:  Explore logo designs)          Task (example:  Industry research, approach, and storyboards)
