Using an app for tasks is superior to the built-in task-feature for obvious reasons. So why not ditch the built-in task management altogether and instead improve apps so that they can be better used for supervising/project- and task-management across a whole organization.
THE one central feature that would more or less solve all problems of the universe "the podio way" (which is giving the power to the user instead of pre-defining the structure/process) would be this:
- Making it possible to create apps that pull and sync selected fields from several specified apps (in different workspaces). I can imagine it's not as simple as it sounds but it would solve a lot of problems supervising managers have with podio. These Merge-Apps as I call them would be a totally different type of app that has no fields on its own. Instead you would specify which field of wich apps should be pulled into the merge-app. Potential use-cases for this type of app:
- apps for Tasks in every workspace AND (via a Merge-App) an overview of all task-items across all workspaces
- overview of all deliverables in every workspace
- overview of anything, anywhere
