Clarification on external employees.
I am just trying to get my head around the external employee/client feature of Podio.
Please let me know if this is incorrect, but this is how I see it;
If I have a premium account under my business' domain, I can then create an organisation for one of my clients, and they can use Podio for free?
The only reason I ask is because I am a huge fan of Podio and I promote it to all my clients. I would like to provide an already configured system for them so they can just log in and use it. If that makes sense?
Many thanks for your time.
If you set up an organization under your domain you can invite an unlimited amount of external members for free. Only the members with the email domain that is attached to the Podio account will be registered as employees and thereby be seats of $9 US per employee per month.
In theory you can set organizations up for clients and invite them in to a totally configured system that you have set up for them. You will be employee and they will be external members.
The best way to proceed from here is to add their company domain to the account so that they all become employees and "take over" the system. Only employees can be organization admin and use the user management page and the billing page. You can still be part of the organization if you need to have access.
