Today we've released a new phone and email field in Podio to give you a better way to communicate with clients and contacts directly from Podio.
These fields allow multiple inputs so you can store several emails and phone numbers in one field and label them depending on their context (for example: Home, Work, Mobile).
Imagine you’re working on a potential lead in Podio. You have her number and now you want to call her. So click her number in Podio, and go right ahead – you’ll save time and the hassle of having to add a new number to your phone. Now, with an email or phone client installed on your device, for example Outlook for emails and Skype for calls, Podio will open this client and initiate the communication for you – just click on “Send Email” or “Call”.

Currently, the new email field cannot be used as a key when importing data to your apps from excel. We are looking into ways on how this could be done in the future. In the meantime, look if there could be other fields to use as key or use a single line text field.
The new fields are not supported for webforms yet but support will be added this fall.
