Can we please, PLEASE, get a major UI update?Completed
Our company has relied on Podio for years. We have constantly been developing workflows and utilizing many of the most advanced functionality that Workflow and Procfu provide.
But without writing our own bespoke software, we cannot change one of the blandest and annoying things for our employees that regularly use Podio, it's UI.
It could be forgiven for looking the same for all these years, but what cant be overcome is the huge waste of screen resources, and limited functionality of the App layouts, very poor choices for item layouts, and many of the unique apps and functions built-in to Podio like tasks and the calendar, also have limited functionality and customization.
I mean, things as simple as giving us more color options for labels.
I know there have been small additions here and there, things like clearing completed tasks from inside of an item. But Podio honestly needs a complete makeover.
Sincerely, Someone who has used this UI every single day for 8 years.
P.S. You can apply all of the above to your mobile apps too, especially the iOS one. But that's not as critical for our business to operate efficiently. We accepted and worked around the limitations of the mobile app a long time ago.
Glad to let you know that we have released a new look for Podio this week. This includes a brand new color palette, modern & retina ready icons and many more updates. Check out details here:
Hope you like it! Cheers,

I understand Podio wasn't initially intended to be a comprehensive and technical platform, and that that can overwhelm beginners. But why not frame the upgrade as a "Podio Pro" and charge extra for it?
Our small company has invested 8 years of development and thousands of man-hours into our companies Podio and Globiflow/Workflow system. And with the lack of attention the base Podio product has gotten, we would be at a massive loss If we need to change business management software. If we could at least export all of the data, workflow, and logic systems out of Podio and into another Citrix product, we could move forward without our investment wasted. But with no major update or alternative product, we will be chained to what we perceive is an erratically reliable database and unintuitive, confusing, and time-wasting user interface.
Checkout this skin. It is a very nice UI refresh away from the staid Podio UI:https://help.podio.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/360008596600-Re-Styling-Podio
