    Hi Simon,

    Well yes I have a solution, but it is in an app outside of Podio that was build for us. 

    We are a theatre company and one of the things that costs a lot of time is updating all the touring itineraries. Plus there is no way to print the spreadsheet like overview in podio. 

    So we now have an app that has a sync database (also nice as redundant backup for when Podio would suddenly vaporize) which contains all the productions we are running. There is the address of a contact/location is coupled to a performance/rehearsal etc. Then I can publish this overview as a seperate website (which has a nice lay out et al) and send the link to everybody involved. That way I do not have to give everybody access to the podio workspace which is inconvenient for people that only want to know the planning. Think of this public button as how you can publicize a spreadsheet in google docs for example.

    That works for us but I can imagine you have a rather different use-case depending on your business. In the meantime it is a matter of waiting for a better contact management system to be implemented in podio I guess. But they do have more focus on improving current functions atm; like the clone function which saved us already hours of work...think of adding all cast and crew again and again to every performance in a tour schedule...

    Best regards,

    Rutger
