I'm interested to hear opinions from experienced Podio designers about app relationship design. In particular rules for which way around to do the relationship referencing.
For example, I downloaded the Basic Project Management pack and was surprised to see that deliverables have a link to projects and not the other way around. In my mind Projects 'contain' deliverables and I would have designed the Project app to have a relationship field for deliverables. Referenced that way you would add deliverables to projects, rather than add deliverables in the deliverables app and then reference each of them to the relevant project. What are the advantages and disadvantages of setting up the referencing each way?
I appreciate that if you reference deliverables from project and have a large number of deliverables then the project app will stretch out with a long list.
