REIFlow for Podio: Preview #2

Scott Costello All, Blog, Featured

Anyone who has used Podio knows that there is a learning curve when first getting started. This learning curve is much steeper then most other software systems because you basically have to develop your own system. Podio, at its core, is a development platform that makes it easy to create custom input forms and store that information in tables. If that was all Podio did, it wouldn’t require such a learning curve and wouldn’t be nearly as powerful. In my …

Not being able to group those ...

Podio – Direct Mail Campaigns

A question I get asked a lot is how do I manage my mailing campaigns in Podio.

The more and more I use Podio though, I realize that I'm missing out on not having a web based solution for my campaigns. One ...
