That's all nice and all that you redesigned your blog but...
WE WANT UPDATES TO PODIO that reflect what we've been asking for, for almost a year now.
Podio, your priorities are seriously messed up. Users come first. You are failing horrifically in the UX area of your business. Your UI is nice, easy to use, but is lacking features and results requested and DEMANDED by your users.
Does anyone else agree? We want update calendars, a roadmap, or guaranteed implementation on highly-voted features that do not deserve pathetic work arounds.
Hey Andrew, Ron, Jonathan, and Rodrigo :)
Appreciate the feedback and honesty - we do have something in the works actually (we always do). I promise to keep you updated here when we have news to share. I also promise that the news include updates to some of the top requested features (https://help.podio.com/hc/communities/public/topics/200069188-1-Feature-Requests?filter=votes)

I have formed the same impression of Podio, reading through the question and request topics it feels like Podio is too stubborn and rather than prioritising what the users want and need, they reply with excuses and are slow to implement improvements. Come on Podio, you have a great product underneath, but the UX is terrible, workflow is incredibly convoluted and even the UI feels a little confused or over-designed. Instead of being too proud, admit that you have work to do and listen to your users, otherwise you will loose them. - Especially if someone gets fed up and leapfrogs you with something better!
We actually did make over 10 improvements in the most recent release that has specifically been requested by a lot of users in the past. Read more here: http://blog.podio.com/2014/05/07/10-creator-features/
Specifically the advanced calculation field was the top voted feature in our Forum by users and we're happy to build and improve the functionality for our Community: https://help.podio.com/hc/communities/public/questions/200508518-More-advanced-calculations
I'm sorry to hear you got this impression and I do hope we can prove you wrong in the future :)
