    You can actually populate other fields via the body in an email. Let's say you have a Relation field named "Project" (and the app you're emailing to is a Deliverables app) and a field named "Status". If you write your email like this:

    To: Your Deliverables app email address
    Body:
    Project: Operation Firefox
    Status: Ongoing

    We have a new deliverable that I have just started working on.


    Now, if there is a project named "Operation Firefox" in your projects app, it will be referenced in the relation field, and if there is a status called "Ongoing", it will be selected in the deliverables app. The entire body text will also be inserted in the first large text field if you haven't selected an other field in the email to app configuration. I believe you can do this with other field types as well but I haven't tried.

    Can you publish a form with the fields you are interested in (environment, origin, error type, ...) and ask users to fill in the form instead of writing an email?

    YES - that's it!

    Unfortunately, some fields can not I fill - some but yes - the error will be probably in the application.

    Thank you so much - PS: where in the help is something written about this? Thanks - is ended

    We are a Podio Preferred Partner and this is something I have picked up during discussions with the Podio Team. As far as I know it isn't documented anywhere. There are actually a lot of small features that aren't marketed, some more useful than others.

    What they do have in common is that they usually require some more work (as in filling out the email exactly right) and maybe they don't want to brag about features that people will surely mess up (and then blame Podio).

    Glad that it worked!
