    I have seen 30 comments on this request I made back on 4/24/14. I have now have a specific recommendation: Why not add the ">"  open and "<" close option to the Activity Stream? That would recover all of that screen space to allow for more tiles. Better: add the option of "Default Open" or "Default Close" to the above option. Thoughts?

    Andrew.... Where did you go after Podio? How do you like it?

    Well, nowhere. I use Podio everyday. My partner has the subscription. Podio has a few inherent limitations, but it is the best out there by far that I've seen.

    Hey Andrew,

    We do have this listed internally but haven't been able to prioritize it just yet.

    The last 6 months we have been focused on adding more power to webforms and building a new contact specific app to improve the CRM use-case: https://help.podio.com/hc/en-us/community/topics/200077273-Product-News

    As a work-around, you can consider using Plecto for advanced dashboard functionality - or use Geckboard, they have an integration to Podio so you can add tiles and reports from Podio in a few clicks.

    Thanks for your patience!

    Like others here I have several non-collaborative workspaces and I don't need to see that I've added an app etc. It takes up SO much space onscreen that the ability to minimise/hide it would make my experience so much better.

    I vote for this too! I understand that the Activity Stream is supposed to be for Collaborative purposes, but it's apparent that many Podio users do not need this so much. If we just had the options to "hide" it, re-size it, or at least move it to the bottom of the Activity page, that would be helpful. We utilize the Activity page as a Dashboard as well, since all of our apps are "locked down" to prevent users from adding/deleting (they have to use webforms).  Our Activity page is mainly used to provide webforms to each App, important news headlines, specific files, etc.  Is there any ETA on when this feature "might" be available?

    I agree.  This is not the first thing I want to see in every workspace.

    I also wish to hide it or to just be able to select another landing page for a workspace

    Here's another +1 for minimizing the activity stream. I don't want it gone, but if I could shrink it, and move it around that would be amazing. Surely that's an easy easy easy fix?

    this activity stream is a big pain.. instead of having the full screen to work on, I get half.. such a bad idea to ignore all the posting you got here. you guys might regret it in the future

    We're a pr firm and I love Podio for what we do. We use apps for internal management and also for projects with clients. However, after 2 years of working with our team to show them how to use it, they still place things in the activity stream instead of in a folder (because it is there, and on the first page). I like the activity feed in general, I just wish I could turn off the "post" feature up at the top so that they would put stuff where it goes. Things will get lost in the activity feed if they place them there. 

    It would be nice to be able to at least turn that off.


    Thanks for your consideration!

    I have been playing w Podio for months- it is my biggest thing that really makes me dislike the app.. please Hide or remove activity. Make it smaller? Different window? A closing button? so many great ideas from the thread.. please please add me to a Vote to have this changed.

    Hi Kellie,

    This post is almost 3.5 years old. I wouldn't hold your breath that this gets changed anytime soon.

    Add me to the list of users that would like an activity stream option to hide or minimise.

    Of course this isn't happening, but we would also very much like to see it being possible. If anything stopped us using Podio it would be the inability to reduce the size of the activity stream throughout the system.

    This was bugging me as well. I was able to use the Stylebot Chrome extension to add a few lines of custom CSS to hide the activity stream window as well as make the property editors wider. I haven't tested this much yet so I'm not sure if it causes any other issues. Also, this may break if the html/css on podio changes. In Stylebot, add the following styles for podio.com

    .item-content-body {
    width: 1195px;
    }

    .item-activity-wrapper {
    visibility: hidden;
    }

    Over 4 years and still no update to allow the Activity Stream to be hidden. Can it surely be that difficult to do when it is so highly requested?

    We have no requirement for the activity stream in our business. It just takes up screen space and I would much rather have my tiles from my workspaces take up more room.

    Activity stream can be distracting to those not involved in particular projects.  As it reports everything, everyone can see everything you record, which is not ideal.  I'd like the option to only have activities involving that person to appear in their activity stream, to be seen by admins only or to remove it all together.

    I have a Sole Proprietorship thus zero collaboration. Yet, I have so much information I need to keep track of but can use half the screen because of the Activity screen. 

    It would be lovely if we could have a dashboard kind of screen with all our apps where we could enable/disable the Activity Stream.

    Activity Stream takes up way too much space. Would love the ability to customize the dashboard so that I can display more relevant information. Any update on if there are plans to allow this?

    I'd like to weigh in on this as well. Personally, the Activity Stream is not useful to me on my home page. I follow multiple workspaces with varying degrees of importance to my daily tasks. Ideally, the following changes to the Activity Stream would make for a better product that is adaptable to different work styles:

    • Allow the Activity Stream to be disabled/ closed
    • Allow the Activity Stream to be moved (My personal preference would be to keep it and move it to the bottom of my screen)
    • Allow the Activity Stream to be customized (select which workspaces to display or allow multiple streams for various workspaces that can be arranged on the screen to the user's preference)

    It's been years (specifially 6 on this particular thread). Is there ANY update on this? It seems there is a collective group of users who would like an enable/disable option for the activity stream side panel. Or even have an option to resize since it takes up WAY too much space.

    Has this been forgotten?

    Have a look at https://www.bettersupermenu.com/ - allows you to hide or maximise the comments/activity pane

    Not only the Activity Stream on the main workspace, but in the side panel on the app items. Every single one of them. We use Comments a lot, but nobody's interested in seeing who changed the spelling on what in the Activity pane. Could you give us the option to reverse them ?
