Always Hide Fields

I use fields to drive and control triggers. It would be nice to allow setting in fields to always hide in the UI. I know there is a Hidden when empty option, but would be nice to be able to hide always no matter what.

I use calcs as variables that will drive larger calcs later. I second this functionality.

@Sara Personally I have many fields that contain IDs or other info which I use to connect my Podio data with other external apps / procedures we have. Eg:

- Online / Offline status

- Contact ID vs my public website ID

etc...

+1 for this idea!
As an admin, i have a ton of fields that I use for sensitive calculations or other things that the 'regular' members on my team don't need or want to see. This can mean my apps get cluttered up and less user friendly for regular users. Ultimately, it makes my colleagues not want to use podio at all, and I think about ways of getting users OUT of podio (in terms of our day to day company workflows).
Since Podio makes money on per-user subscriptions, this strikes me as a very important matter, and something worth elevating on your product roadmap.

Es wäre hilfreich, wenn dieses Feature vorankommt. Denn damit lässt sich neben mehr Ruhe ins Bild bringen auch Programmierung verstecken.

I'd like to second this request. 

The system I am building also uses calculation fields as methods of incorporating extra functionality and references often using javascript.  It would really help to be able to hide the fields from the app UI. 

What would be really useful would be the options for each field

   -  hide if empty (already exists)
   -  hide from print
   -  hide from app

Have a button in the in the Field Settings to "HIDE FIELD" so you can turn it on or off depending if you want it to be seen by others??

I absolutely need this functionality to clean up my items for end users.

Any update on this. I really need to hide away fields that contain data. For example, I use a workflow to pull in the google address information (JSON) from a location field, and then calculate the other address field so that I can separate these into specific fields (Street Number, Street etc). The issue is that the Json field is multiline and is long. This means that the app is a mess unless I can hide the JSON multi-line text field.

I'd love this.

I use some fields to help trigger tasks through workflows and would love to keep from changing them by mistake.

Yes this would be really useful. For a remote API call I store data in the app but this should not show up to regular users. Hiding this make Podio much more friendly to use

This seems like it would be such an easy addition to implement. Could we please see something done here?

Please! Podio devs, this really can't be a difficult change to implement. Or is Podio no longer being updated?
