    We love using Podio but we do need the ability to view reoccurring events in to the future so that we can plan our work and projects. Please add this feature.

    +1 for this feature, too...
    Any news on this, Podio?
    Thanks!

    This is a MUST have. I've never, ever, anywhere seen a calendar app that doesn't have it.

    I realize it may be "difficult" to fix, but it must be addressed and communicated to your paying members ASAP. This is really not good.

    Can you give us a timeframe when a decision will be made on this?

    Please don't ignore.

    Thanks,

    Joel

    Well, it's been a year and a half since the original post and the Podio team seems to be unwilling (or unable) to implement this basic Calendar feature. Since then, I've found the entire Podio experience lacking in several other areas as well, so I've moved on to better tools. I suggest everyone here do the same, as it doesn't look like they're interested in addressing this issue anytime soon.

    Agreed and I suspect that since Podio has not responded to any one regarding this for a while we'll start searching for a new tool. I know others have parted ways with Podio because of this. If you are still tracking this chain, please let me know what tools your using so we can investigate them. I suspect Podio is on the way out for us.

    Incredible - my previous post (from a few hours ago) was deleted!

    I did not use any foul language or even suggest other apps, I simply said that we're not going to be using Podio in the future because they're obviously not going to fix this essential issue after a year and a half of people asking them to.

    Radu Paraschivescu, 2 questions:
    1) what are you guys using in lieu of Podio?
    2) what are the other areas that you feel are most missing?

    Thanks,

    Joel

    How are you guys using calendars in your environment, since this is such a major issue?

    Hey Radu Paraschivescu, if you would, email me directly at jsmith@comprehensivemedia.com.

    If Podio is deleting messages, there's a much bigger issue here.

    Why oh why do we continually get emails from Michael Dean regarding new Podio features, but we cannot get an answer to a simple, basic need from Podio regarding having future, repeated meetings showing on the calendar? Very poor Podio. I am no longer recommending you to colleagues. You have a good tool, but you have completely ignored this very fundamental request of users. You really should be ashamed of yourselves.

    This is a major sticking point for us. We made the decision to leave Podio altogether. Too bad, because I really wanted it to work.

    Would love this feature! Even though the team knows that there's a meeting recurring it slips their minds and they might schedule something when the next recurred meeting is supposed to be. It would be great if people could see recurring items until the end date!

    Currently, only the next meeting in a recurring meeting series displays on the Podio calendar. This is not very helpful as often other things get scheduled for times when a recurring meeting is set in the future, thus making the recurring feature almost unusable. Please show future occurrences of repeating meetings on the calendar.Yes, yes, yes. This is weird that the repeat function doesn't allow the item to show up in the calendar. We are trying to map out 10 months in advance and badly need this feature.

    Not having this feature is a serious flaw. would think major effort would have been applied already.

    Additionally, it scheduled my recurring meeting incorrectly (perhaps because I had a recurrence one day earlier but it scheduled for a week later weirdly). Definitely needs to be looked at. I currently just default to google calendar.

    Agreed, this is needed, and I would have thought pretty basic for any kind of calendar app

    Tell you what - there's probably enough of us to make crowd-funding the development of this feature a reality. Podio - what would be the costs of implementing this and can you commit to developing it if we raise enough cash?

    Our team would love for the meeting to clear out the fields from the previous occurrence. We store meeting notes, actionable items, etc from each meeting and it's a huge pain to remove them from every occurrence.

    Hi all,

    Thanks a lot for your feedback on this and for your votes. We are keeping a steady eye on all feature inputs here and monitoring what, when and how we can implement in the best way. It all comes down to priorities of what brings the biggest value for most. Hopefully this will be something we can see in the future. Unfortunately I have no news on it for today though. We'll make sure to keep you in the loop here about any updates!

    Since this "feature" isn't implemented yet, I'd like to come up with a compromise. For me it's okay to see my recurring events 4 weeks in the future for now. So I cloned my weekly recurring events 3 times and let all of them repeat every 4th week. Maybe that could help.

    Don't get me wrong, I totally vote for getting this done as soon as possible. But honestly, as a very fresh user of Podio, I'm already too much convinced of the possibilties and the flexibility this software brings along, to loose faith in the devolpers.

    All the best
    Tomasz

    this is NOT an answer, as it says in the headline - it is a comment like most of the 84 before!

    Let's try it this way:
    If you read in wiki, a meeting is:
    In a meeting, two or more people come together to discuss one or more topics, often in a formal setting.

    If you read on the Podio homepage, it says:
    There's a better way to work - A fresh take on collaborating and getting organized.

    How - and that is again my question, how can i be organized, if I don't know the upcoming meetings......
    Why is this request pending since 6. September 2013???

    The reply - 2 months ago - from Charlie says:
    "We are keeping a steady eye on all feature inputs here and monitoring what, when and how we can implement in the best way. It all comes down to priorities of what brings the biggest value for most."

    ...the biggest value for most! If you just think about 84 people writing here, plus those, who don't write and became angry only, plus those, who are working in the teams of those, requesting the feature.....

    What other features were realy introduced in the past monthes? except the 3rd party products....

    Again - please read your own homepage:
    We pride ourselves on our stellar support, and in going beyond your expectations. We deliver highly personalized help and advice, and we won’t rest until you've accomplished your goals.

    Have a nice Day!

    Just coming onto this, I guess it's not fixed. Thought I was doing something wrong. Why have the option of repeating a meeting if it doesn't show? How do I know it's scheduled when adding other events? And to the comment about embedding Google Calendar, why would I be using Google if I'm using Podio? Doesn't that defeat the purpose?

    @Rebecca

    I hear you, currently the calendar in Podio does not support that, but I see what you mean and also think it would be a good addition to Podio.

    No current news to add to this but as Charlie said we will keep you updated if there's anything new to share on it.

    Keep up the voting guys.

    This is ridiculous.
    Pending since september 2016. 
    A very simple and obvious feature.
