Calendar Requests

Hi!

Really need to be able to utilize the calendar in Podio well. Currently we have lots of projects we break down into Workspaces. We need to be able to view each project (workspace) on the calendar as a whole... but be able to distinguish between each project (color coding is a great way to do this). Also, want to be able to add events/deadlines/meetings to the calendar directly and link them back to a specific workspace/project. After reading through the requests... it looks like the calendar setbacks are the main frustrations within podia. If you guys are able to master this... I think you will be blown away by the response. It would be SO helpful for our team if this worked well!! We currently don't use Podio because we have to be able to rely on a calendar. Please, please help!!

Emily, I completely agree. I'm new to Podio and so far I'm loving it, but the calendar is lackluster, to say the least, and that's actually something I need desperately. I'm a real small shop--myself and two contractors, and I have to keep them in separate workspaces so they can't see what the other one is working on necessarily, but I need to (easily) set and see their deadlines plus my own.

Right now the calendar is useless for me--it's a wash of green bars regardless of what workgroup the task is assigned to. I'd love to add work dates for my projects to help me with planning, but trying to do anything that spans multiple dates at this point would just make the calendar even less functional than it already is.

I really hope this is being worked on--it's pretty important, IMO, for team management / project management of any sort.

Thanks!

Wow Podio, a shared calendar function ( not a crazy idea right? ) was posted over 2 years ago and still nothing...

Hey Adam,

Great idea but big project to implement as it would require a change in the overall architecture and permission structure behind Podio :) We hope to get there at some point.

For now we recommend exporting to external calendar. Thanks for the feedback!
