Location field in workflow

Hej Guys

Would it at some point be possible to transfer map information in workflows?

I can't give you any time frame, but it seems like a reasonable use case. I'll make sure to take it up with the team. Thanks for the input!

I'd like to second that request. Further it would be nice to show a map with all of the locations associated with items in view in an app.

This would be huge... for instance, we would be able to immediately transfer address information from "applications" that come in via a webform to the active "roster" when a person makes it through the interview phase. Right now we have to copy and paste, not to mention copy and past 4 time for one address field.

I have the same need: right now I created an external map where everyday I import manually my PODIO leads to plot them. 
I have created different markers based on different entries I have in a single choice field called "lead status", every status has a colour.

If you could create a map in podio it would be definitely terrific! It'll save my mental health :)

big up!

I would like to ping this topic also again. And to be sure, I think the original poster also meant within Podio workflows (so not via the API, although it is in the API forum).

The use-case is in my case for example: personnel is in the personnel database, but we also want it to be in the general contactperson database. We can automatically create and update the record via a workflow and use the name, phone, e-mail and relation field. We cannot however add the address. This has become more of an immanent problem since we went from using normal text fields for addresses to the location field (which as a separate object has nice possible functionalities), however we can no longer update the address... That is quite a problem...

Could you share perhaps what the problem is in pushing this information through? Because the use-case seems so straightforward. What is technical difficulty and could we perhaps think along to find a solution?

Alright, so here I was looking for a tutorial on how to pass the location added either through the webform or direct onto Podio and pass the location info into the Lead app. 

It seems it is not possible. 

Any update on the Podio side?

As a workaround (everything has a workaround), any suggestion?

One up on this topic. In addition links would be nice to be able to transfer between apps

Using the location field in our workflow automation is very important. Any chance this will be an added feature?

Any updates on when this feature will be available, if ever? Did anybody figure out a workaround?

Another request for this feature. My use case is as a video production company. We're also using Globiflow - which does not (for me) easily carry over files. It was suggested I use Podio's native workflows which solves the links issue but doesn't carry over locations (or links) for my videographers.

I would also like to request for the location field to be transferred between apps using workflows, it's an extremely important field of us, and the idea of an automation program that can't do this seemingly simple task and quite frustrating and nearly a deal breaker for us

Case use is in Real Estate. We have a leads App and a Clients app. When we go to a lead and run numbers on the listing then take the listing we move the lead to current client and am attempting to populate a Transaction record that will take the address information from the Client App.
