    Like turn on a webcam? Or what do you want it to do?

    something like that. Actually in a recent project, my customer need to let podio inform a machine to lanuch to do its work.

    The only thing I could think that could work right now might be sending an email when a item is created in podio, but you'd have to back end stuff from that email to make the machine do what you wanted, and that takes more coding knowledge than I have, so I don't know if its possible.

    Getting Podio to send the email would just be a workflow thing though.

    We can develop pc program to launch that machine's driver, but we don't know how to get podio's Notification or Task on PC.

    Although now that I look a bit more closely, workflow can't send a direct email, which makes sense as part of Podio is reducing email. So maybe what you need to do is set up a new "user" that is the the machine's email address, set a workflow to create a new task for the machine's user profile, it will then get a notification email that it has a new task (you should be able to set that up in the profile segment on when to send emails) and then have that email trigger your task.

    Seems like a bit of a workaround but should work if you can do the back end programming

    Gentlemen I think you're looking for webhooks:

    I guess you could use Zappier of IFTTT services. Or just write some webhook endpoint and Podio will ping it (check the option webhooks when customizing an App).
