Collapsible Sub-Categories within Apps

It would be great if we were able to create sub-categories within individual apps that could be hidden/revealed with a click. In much the same way that you can currently hide empty fields (and conversely, reveal them with a click).

Our team uses Podio as a central hub for all of our main processes and we primarily service the hospitality industry. We have an App simply titled 'Properties' where we track our sales process, specific items from our installation process, some maintenance items, along with long term client information needs.

Multiple apps for these items you say? This is not the best option in this scenario. While we do have apps for Installations and other major projects, there are certain key items that need to be centrally located for the purposes of a service record. Unfortunately, there isn't a good way to logically separate these different items within an app. If we could define which fields are displayed within a sub-category, and give the sub-category a heading, it would dramatically improve the usability of Podio.

My apologies if this has been suggested already, I didn't have any luck finding a similar request...

Hey Garrett.

We have this one listed internally but no short-term plans for a fix. Thanks for sharing!

yes definitely, as an app gets longer it would help to be able to collapse sections, maybe reduce padding of them, even have some fields in two or three columns if they are not very long

I'm chiming in here (again) because this hasn't been revisited by Podio in a year.

Hi Sara,

Any further updates on this request? Perhaps a stop-gap that could be implemented sooner would be the option to hide populated fields rather than just empty ones..? Those fields could then be revealed in the same way that hidden fields are currently displayed, with a simple mouse click.

EDIT: I found a couple of suggestions for this elsewhere ;)

@Sara - is there a development roadmap that is shared with the community?  Perhaps quarterly or even yearly?  There are a few key features that are very apparent are needed (and confirmed with the community).  Even many of the community team members who have advanced knowledge of strong organizational skills in Podio through single apps, app relationships and sorting views.

Expand/Collapse would be an essential component, or even the ability to manually enter additional code in the Calculations field to achieve this.

Can you let us know on the roadmap plans?
