    100% agreed!! Still, since 2013 so little effort was done by Podio. I have mobile app plataform that has a native solution, you can add word or excell templates with tags for each app and it generates pdf files (word or excel as well) from database data. Will can add also more templates, to generate more custom repports, as you desire. Wish podio had at least this simple solution to offer. But seems they insist in only suggesting us to go to developers or partners. TechGo extension (http://www.techego.com/apps/apt) charges per volume of printed data in a ridiculus way... Serious doubt it is a hard coding solution. As they are increasing prices in Podio, they should at least offer this as a native feature. So, Podio, why this resistance in adding so critical need for your costumers? A very smart cloud plataform with a so obvious limitation.

    +1 This is still the biggest impediment to using podio as a larger part of the business.

    Agreed. We DEFINITELY need access to this type of functionality - to count and show anything we've already built based on stats.

    By far the biggest issue with Podio.  I have spent hours looking for alternatives without luck.  Podio flexibility and functionality with proper reporting capabilities would be killer.

    Our organization is considering moving away from Podio for this exact reason!

    Very important issue! Critical I would say. Without a reporting feature the amount of data srtored in PODIO can become useless and organizations can move away from PODIO.

    Thanks for the input and constructive feedback, much appreciated. Just sharing an alternative solution in case some of you are not aware yet:

    Podio is build on a open API, which means that if you like to create more advanced reporting you can do so via the Developers API: https://developers.podio.com/ - you can access all you data from here.

    If you don't have access to a developer in-house you can also contact a Podio Partner to get help to build customized reporting functionalities, find the Podio Partners here: https://company.podio.com/en/partners-find

    This is a huge need. And I really don´t know why they already didn´t, because reporting does not affect the actual structure of the system. It is just output data.

    We have been using Podio for some time and this is by far our biggest gap in what is otherwise an excellent application. I understand that there is soon to be a 3rd Party Dashbaord application to be released however so far it has been difficult to get any visibiltiy. I wonder if Podio may let us know if there are any updates in relation to this in the pipeline and when they would be available?

    so frustrating that I can't generate a simple report at the end of the week that lets a client know what tasks were completed for the week.  

     

    Option 2 mentioned above would be fantastic.

    Agreed. Please implement a solutions that does not require coding (API). This is a serious limitation.
