field changes to activity stream

not it is not possible to see changes in activity stream. i know it is in inbox. for me would be nice to define which fields changes in which app are critical, and thos will appear in stream i.e. contract status was changed from new to approved.

Right, I'll repost something to that effect here:

 

Streams are for quick updates; these should be as explicit as possible.

Regarding item edits, it would be great to have the same kind of information you get within a notification, i.e.:

  1. Field name
  2. Field value change, except for text fields

“John Doe changed Status from Open to Closed 2 hours ago“ or

“John Doe edited Objectives 2 hours ago” (for text fields)

is way more efficient in a stream than 

“John Doe edited this 2 hours ago”

and not longer than common file addition edits, like

“John Doe added CLIENT-Project-Report_final version.pptx 2 days ago”

Then (especially for text fieds), a click on the pen icon prefixing edits should open the revision popup window, just like clicking “Show me the latest changes”  in item view, advantageously sparing a click and page load. This last point would be a good first step to making items activity more (easily) explicit in streams.

I totally agree. The current activity stream updates about edit don't have much value. Would be a lot greater it field changes would be visible.

Hi all,

Though this request is a bit old by now it is still relevant and I've shared it with the product team again, to build the argument for an improvement to contextual notifications.

Thanks again.

Great suggestion, I also think that a short preview of new items would be really useful on the activity wall. So more of a card view or even the first 140(?) characters if the 2nd field is also text rather than the current:
"Title of item
New item by user, x hours ago"

This is the biggest drawback to Podio's functionality as I see it. For the activity stream to have real value, users should be able to comment on items FROM THE ACTIVITY STREAM. This is not possible if you have to click items to understand what they are. I don't understand why this wasn't done from day one.
