Currently, Podio requires that you remove an Employee from the Organization in order to not be charged for that Employee. In some cases, it would be good to be able to retain a user at a reduced price so that they can resume their access at a later date.
Google offers an Archived User license for a reduced price for the archived user, whose data and user account would be retained without the user being able to access the data for the duration of the archive period. Others would still have access to the data during the archive period. This might be one way that Citrix/Podio could meet these types of needs of your customers.
We recently have had a need for something like this, but unfortunately, we will need to remove the user. If the user returns, we will need to create a new user account for the same person and start from scratch assigning their accesses.
They also provide a "Suspend user" feature (user cannot access, but not at a reduced price), which also would be helpful.
If there currently is a way that will work to accomplish the same thing, I'd love to hear it. (E.g., can the user change their profile email address to be non-Employee, and then change it back when they return - thus keeping their user ID?)
