Workflow Triggers By Date
A big improvement to workflow would be if you simply add another trigger based on dates as apposed to just when people add / edit stuff. So when that date is reached a workflow will trigger. This would allow apps to create tasks eg review progress, reminders, alert when project end dates have passed etc.

Agreed! We have a lot of milestones/deadlines during e.g. a printed insert with review progress, translations, deliveries and so on, and they all are relative to the final deadline. Would be great to have Podio to create tasks relative to this deadline.
Exactly what I was looking for here adding a in 90 days etc
Ditto that ..
Good input Mark!
We're looking into adding more features to the workflow functionality in the future.

We are today very happy and proud to announce that we've released the new, powerful Advanced Workflows feature in Podio! This has been much requested and we can definitely see why. It will let you automate a whole lot of processes in Podio and help you save valuable time. If you haven't tried it out yet, give it go!
It does not do exactly what you are asking for here, I'm aware of that and we will keep your input for further improvements. I still wanted to share this with you as it have similarities. With this feature you can for example trigger a new tasks or item to be automatically created in another app upon change to a certain category. And much much more..

Any progress on the date trigger?
@Elia, no news on this at the moment, though still something we have on the wish list for the future.
For now I would recommend to check out the extension GlobiFlow that provides quite a few additional powers to the workflows: https://podio.com/extensions/2
Thanks for you up-vote on this, we'll keep you posted on any news here! :-)

+1 - I've been waiting for this for for couple of years. I have another thread somewhere. I've got an invoice sent app where clicking on a category "INvoice sent" will trigger a workflow that fill in "Date Posted". But I wanted to set up a due reminder for 28 days later when setting up a task. But this task appears on the Task list immediately. I just want the task to appear on the task list 28 days later - not right away.
+1 on this. I don't see any reason why this should incur an additional expense - by signing up to Globiflow - when this is a simple enough feature to request for, on the current platform.
Any update on this ticket? I still cannot see the workflow functionality being linked to the date field.
On would wish that after 4 years this simple functionality (not sure if simple from the developer point of view to be fair) has already been considered and developed.
@Thomasz you can use Globiflow to have this feature available :)
