Nothing slows a project down like endless status meetings and reporting. To keep your team moving – Podio organizes all your project’s deadlines, files and conversations into one transparent place. You get the overview you need, without the hassle, while your team stays aligned and focused.
Here is a look at how Jenny and her team use Podio on a daily basis to get things done:
Jenny made her own template, so she is confident she can store all the necessary bits of information her team needs.
You can add files to almost anything in Podio, conveniently integrating with services like Google Drive and Dropbox. It makes it easy for Jenny to e.g. add the project brief as a PDF to the project.
Every project references a client, so it’s easy for Jenny to look up previous communications and outcomes related to her current client.
Jenny uses the workspace dashboard to get a quick overview of how her team is doing. It shows the latest updates, the work currently in progress and highlights overdue work.
Asking another team member to help out is simple: Jenny can assign a task to her colleague Trinity, right on the overdue deliverable so she knows what the task is related to.
On the mobile app, Trinity will be notified about his new task immediately. The deliverable in question is connected to it so that Jenny will be notified automatically and can see on the deliverable when she completes the task.
Using built-in chat, Jenny can send her colleague a ‘get well soon’ message, or start a group conversation that includes the entire team.
A meeting is so much more than just a location and a date. The team use it to prepare and discuss the agenda beforehand and to record next steps when it’s over, all in one well-documented place.
During the meeting they discuss each team member’s progress by filtering the deliverables by owner in the Deliverables App.
When the project is done, all the work and communication stays neatly documented for future reference. With unlimited storage, they will never run out of space.
