    I too would like a way 'staging' app content.

    I"d like to have a few app "items" created, but not 'published'. I'd like to click a button and publish 'staged' "items".

    I too would like to see app and app content updates possible as Mike requested.

    Currently we have a workaround that is not very elegant, is limiting and sometimes breaks. What we did is create a private and public workspace for the same content we are working on. We always work on the content in the private workspace and every now and then we archive the apps in the public one then clone the private apps to it.

    Justin's suggestion of simply making app content or "items" private until ready to publish would be a big step up. This way we could continue updating "item" content in one place/workspace whether it is private or has gone public. We would also like the option to control whether comments on published content that are made by members of the private portion, are private or public. Also the option to control the roles for access to the public content (view, modify, comment). In effect this would be a workspace that is private but can have a public appearance that reveals only specific 'items' and specific related comments that have been made public and their associated apps of course. 

    I think for our case, this is definitely a more elegant solution than maintaining multiple copies of the same app and content in different workspaces. It may not solve all of Mike's issues, and since I am posting on his initial post, I would just like to re-iterate that we could also benefit from what Mike describes, which I understand to be a kind of app and content updates mechanism.

    Just wanted to bump this up and see if there was anything on the horizon for updating a master copy of an app via the store, and pushing those updates out. And also publishing data+app together, so apps can be "staged" to a certain configuration.

    Try GlobiFlow Podio extension. I tested it last days. It's incredible.
