Scott Costello All, Blog, Featured 33 Comments

As I’ve setup my Podio systems and processes I’ve come about situations where I need to have a full address string (123 Main St, Somecity, NJ 07981) and other times where I’ve needed only parts of the address…like just the city or the County that the property is in.

Scott Costello All, Blog, Featured 30 Comments

From it's flexibility to it's ease of use, there are a lot of great things about Podio. As a software developer it's not all great...there are some issues I have with it. One of those issues is that there is no easy way to break up long App forms that contain a lot of fields. One such example of this is a Property (or leads) App that could reach to 30 or more fields. Not being able to group those ...

Getting Google Voice Messages into Podio

Scott Costello All, Articles, Blog, Featured 5 Comments

In an effort to completely automate my business (or at least greatly reduce my work), I'm trying out the process of integrating Podio with Google Voice. I want to automatically have a lead created when I get a voicemail. It's a simple process and requires no other services (i.e. zapier, globiflow,etc). You basically just forward your Google Voice messages to your Podio App's email address...Yup it has one. Actually each App has a separate email address. Below I'll walk you ...
