    Thanks for the votes - We have been looking into further improving the fields, however there are no plans for it at this time.

    +1 to this idea. The ability to add fields which are conditional based on the selections of the previous fields would be a great addition. For instance, if Product 1 is selected a field appears for the quantity of product ordered for Product 1. If Product 2 is selected a field appears for the quantity of product ordered for Product 2. Each product type could then be totaled separately.

    You know it would be not so bad - you could introduce form sections. Then you could give an option to show form sections based on a selection in a category field.

    I just know that some of our forms are getting extremely lengthy due to the complexity of what COULD be offered. I want to make it as simple as possible for our sales people to enter the info they need to.

    Yes, I have the same issue. I have a handful of markets that have several sub-markets within them. Currently the user has to scroll through all sub-markets to choose the right one. Sometimes, the sub-markets have the same name as sub-markets in other markets. Very cumbersome that system will not let you only show the sub-markets that belong to the market you are working on.This seems like an oversight and should not be an afterthought for correction. Also, why has this not even been worked on yet?

    I agree, this function would be a great benefit. For my clients I've created a workaround. Depend on which (main) category they select a calculation field right below the category field shows "direct links" to sub-categories. A click on that direct link will bring them to the right sub-section in the item (so they don't have to scroll and search).

    Yes, please @rainer. I have read your comment like 15 times to try and figure out what you are doing. Can you share somehow? I think you could help hundreds maybe even thousands of us could benefit from your workaround method.

    Is there any update on this feature and if it is likely to be in a release soon? Any update would be great as this is something I really need. Thanks

    Why hasn't Podio responded to this?

    I have been using Podio for about 3 years now. I have to say that in my opinion there has not been much improvement in the last year anymore. Looks like Citrix decided not to improve and invest but rather to keep billing existing clients. I have two companies right now deciding wether to switch to a paid plan or go with another solution and honestly, I cannot recommend PODIO at that point in time anymore. Really sad. I like the system a lot.

    The last comment made by Simon doesn't gel with me at all. As a part of the user community I am happy to ask for things and advocate features that we might or might not get, but I am still an avid user and promoter of Podio. In the end it depends on how well you use it. We extend our Podio use through integrations with other tools, dashboards with cloud based tools and Apps and websites that we design in-house. The speed at which we are able to pivot in order to create new features and workout business logic in the calculation fields, is tremendous and unmatched from a no-code perspective. --- Using Podio everyday gives me a load of great ideas on how to grow the platform, however I am a dedicated user. Keep doing what you do Podio team.

    I don't get how this is not a feature for Podio. And users have been commenting on it for 5 years now. One of its biggest flaws day 1 of using it, was the amount of fields on a form. If your trying to track a lot of stuff, your force to hiding it if empty. Which generally just causes users to not fill it out all together. Not impressed with Podio at all. There a lot of crm architecture decisions that make this platform already painful to use.
