Frequently Used Apps - could we make it more useful?
I think there's a lot of potential for this (prime real estate) feature, however I'm finding it awkward to use because...
- Two or more of the same app in multiple workspaces are indistinguishable from each other - eg I have a "Projects" app in multiple workspaces. It's hard to tell which "Projects" app I want to click on.
I can mouse over it and check the url, but that's going against the "quick access" intention of the feature. I could modify the name of every project in every workspaces... but that's going to have other impacts such as making the app list in each workspace bulky.
Could you perhaps include the workspace name in the app button? Even if it's small and greyed out, it'd help.
2. The items move around. This may seem a small thing and I understand this is because it's dynamic... but it's such an important feature in such an important location so I figure it's worth discussing things that compromise it's intention of being able to access things QUICKLY.
Perhaps we should be able to pin items or customize the list?
I expect I'll subconsciously avoid using this feature altogether because it's meant to be a quick access list and these issues slow things down. Is there a way to modify the stream page if the above things can't be addressed?
Food for thought :)
Although I LOVE Podio, I think the Podio Team missed a few usability issues. Hence I created a Chrome extension that gives you a Podio Super Menu, allowing one-click access to all workspaces and all apps. Details here: http://www.globi.ca/blog/podio-super-menu/
Hiya! I'm a little nervous trying this out though, because on the page linked to above is a link to podio.biz instead of podio.com. The DNS entries for podio.biz don't mention citrix like the podio.com one does.
Perhaps it's not an issue, but it just looks a little phishy. Can't be too careful these days. Can you ease my concern?
@Glenn: Yes, all the links from my websites to Podio are through podio.biz, which redirects to my citrix reseller account, and then back to podio.com. When I started using Podio, I liked it so much, and thought it will be so massive one day, that I bought shares in CItrix, and signed up as a reseller. Nothing phishy here - just a reseller link.
