    Agreed, I also wish we could decide what App a workspace defaults to when you enter it - I don't always want to go straight to Activity Stream, i'd rather go directly to Tasks for example.

    Hi, I second this. The ability to reduce or hide the activiy stream would allow for the activity stream to become a much more useful dashboard for a workspace. Also, there seems to be so much dead space within in app when scrolling down with the tiles, reports all bunched on the right hand side. Again, a dashboard view utilsiing this dead space would be fantastic.

    Agree on that.
    As discussed here as well «https://help.podio.com/hc/en-us/articles/201018898-Activity-Streams?page=1» it would be nice to hide and/or move the actitiy stream like any other app.

    Agree- If you have a personal workspace that you are not sharing, the stream is really not required in many situations. It would be nice to have the full width for app tiles!

    I really agree on this feature request. I'm trying to implement Podio across our business and it's going really well except that my collegues find the UI quite messy and hard to navigate. To solve this we have implemented personal dashboards for everyone with a clear view of only the information and tasks they need to know which also works as shortcuts to the correct places within the UI. But, everyone is really confused by the activity-streams since it have no purpose in the way we use it but still takes up half the dashboard. Even if I hide all posts from the activity stream it stills locks half the screen and refuses to put any other app-widgets below it.

    To summarize, in this case less is more so please make it possible to hide the activity stream so we can focus on the information that apply value to our business, not the internal feed of Podio.

    At the very least this should be like a tile which can be turned on/repositioned like other tiles...

    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?

    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

    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;
    }

    2 thumbs up. I need to get to my app. Hide Activity.

    I second that, that would be a great feature. The activity feed is completely useless in our workflow and takes so much space that could be used by relevant tiles.

    Agreed! We don't use it at all in five department workspaces.

    I'd vote YES for being able to hide the activity stream icon.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    This is the ONE reason I am not using Podio. I would pay money to be able to hide the activity stream. I desperately want to use this software but the activity stream extremely limits the flexibility for me. Any news on plans for this feature?

    Please do, the activity stream is useless.

    Agreed. We should be able to show, hide, locate, etc the activity stream. I see this as a natural fit for the Podio customizable application platform. Odd that it isn't already customizable given how everything else is.

    so frustrating this has yet to be addressed. Such a simple change. I abandoned Podio because of this sadly, however for my workflow I wanted to use the main screen as a pinned browser tab with all my info.  it makes the side you can customize end up needing a scroll to see important info which did not work for me.

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

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

    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)

    Disagree @Karey
    Workarounds give me a bad taste and the feeling, I'm using the wrong software!
