Cheating with ProcFu

Scott Costello Blog, Podio, Tools, Tutorial Leave a Comment

If you have read any of my previous articles you know that I love me some Podio API.  However it is not something that your average Podio user can take advantage of.   Not even your advanced Podio users for that matter. The reason being is that it can only be leveraged by using other programming languages such as PHP and Ruby-on-Rails.   That is what I thought until I stumbled across a tool, created by the same person who developed GlobiFlow, …

Chrome Bookmarklets

Scott Costello Blog, Podio, Tutorial Leave a Comment

I’m always on the lookout for tools, techniques or hacks to help automate something in my business.  This usually relates to Podio directory and this “hack” can certainly be used to improve a Podio process.  What I’m talking about is a Bookmarklet. What is a Bookmarklet? It is simply a bookmark that instead of having an Link (webpage address) behind it, it has JavaScript code that does something.  To me it’s exactly like a Macro in Microsoft Office.   Now, I …

Podio Lead Manager App Pack

Scott Costello App Pack, Blog, Podio Leave a Comment

Over the years I’ve heard how many of my blog readers try to create their Podio workspaces based off of all the videos I’ve published for various tutorials. That has all changed now!  While I can’t give it away for free (it took me WAY to long develop this), it is very reasonably priced at $50.  Here is what it includes. Doing this is really not possible because many times I just created test workspaces to create those tutorials.  Some …

There are certain things in Podio that annoy the crap out of me.  One of those such things is the Navigation areas.  Both the App Navbar and the Workspace navigation slideout area.  Generally they are fine, but when you start dealing with multiple Workspaces and 10 plus Apps things get a little awkward. The Workspace menu only shows the 4 or 5 most viewed spaces.  To get to others you have to click on “view more”.   The App Navbar can …

Podio Reporting with MySQL Backup

Scott Costello Blog, Podio, Tutorial Leave a Comment

In the last article I wrote about how you can easily Backup your Podio App data into a MySQL Databse. Like I mentioned in that article, there are advantages to having your data in a MySQL Database.  One of those huge advantages is reporting.  We all know Podio’s reporting capabilities are limited at best, so now we have options! I haven’t explored all the options out there just yet but I have found one that is good and simple to …

Easily Backup App Data to MySQL Database

Scott Costello Blog, Podio, Tutorial 6 Comments

This will probably be one of the more challenging articles I have written.  The difficulty will be in guiding people through the different technologies in order to get this immensely useful functionality implemented for us Podio users. Being able to backup and access your Podio data for reporting, exporting and searching is invaluable.  These things are very difficult to do in Podio as your workspaces get more complicated with Apps linking to each other all over the place.  Plus the …
