How adoption of virtual offices combined with workflow and system architecture improvements can help remote workers.
A few years ago Dave Coplin, Chief Envisioning Officer of Microsoft UK, published his ideas on his philosophy of “Flexible Work” in his book Business Reimagined. His thoughts, which you can watch in a captivating RSA Animated short video here, center around the basic idea of empowering employees to choose the best location in which to perform their work. This doesn’t just mean working from home, either -- although home can potentially be the best place depending on the type of work. For those tasks that require a minimal level of distraction, or for which the employee needs an environment conducive to deep-thinking or meditation, a home kitchen or a library are excellent retreats.
This is a follow up post to the Dynamic Markdown Tables in Podio post. Its a bit trickier to get a table from Podio to look nice in our Advanced Printing Templates extension. But i'm here to show you how.
The basic idea is that the columns of the table need to be a set width since the markdown format is not (yet) supported in Advanced Printing Templates. So i'll show you how to get this space in there, without unformatting the table in Podio.
I recently figured out how to make 100% Dynamic Markdown Tables in Podio. You can create tables with as many rows and/or as many columns as you want, and its dynamic (supports a variable number of rows and/or columns). It’s pretty amazing!
At TECHeGO, we’ve done more complicated versions of this kind of table, so if you want help setting up one or more custom dashboard tables like this, please feel free to contact us for help.
It's 12:09 am on March 01, 2015 and my phone lights up with notifications from Podio. I see this happens twice per month around this time. Why? It's the way I designed our company’s workflows to operate.
We like Podio so much, that we spend our spare time dreaming of additional features. When you spend all day in Podio like we do, it’s easy to think of a few extra features to make life easier. So here we have a list of the top five features we want to see in Podio.
At TECHeGO, our team is part of the 3.5 million Americans who work from home everyday. While we think working from home is great and improves productivity, it can sometimes blur the line between professional work time and personal time. We work on tons of projects throughout the day (and sometimes night) and can tell you from firsthand experience that the only thing keeping you from being productive is you.
For the past several months, TECHeGO has been developing a fully automated app pack to provide an enhanced security solution that Podio does not have. To that end, we are launching a beta version of Security Audit Advanced App Pack for Podio. This app pack consolidates existing features and brand new features in a single workspace for centralized security monitoring.
We read a lot of anticipated excitement on the Internet of Things (IoT). Companies today use IoT technologies to design personal devices that keep us alert while driving, protect our homes, and conserve energy. Soon, these designs will become actual devices that are part of our everyday lives.
Let us start by saying we enjoyed the article Forbes recently published titled, “AT&T Introduces M2X to Ease Internet of Things Development.” The IoT truly is one of the biggest technological advances of our day and it is an exciting time to be involved in the industry. It is also one of the most complex technologies, especially since most developers are still pioneering the industry.
This post, and 2015, marks our fourth-year anniversary of discovering Podio. We are excited to be a part of Podio’s growing ecosystem and are honored to take part in the Citrix Podio Partner Program. As one of the few Podio Developer partners in the United States who do both Podio implementations and technical integrations, we continue to integrate Podio with as many platforms as we can.
How much time does your company waste trying to prioritize projects? Does your team debate over what projects to start first, when to start projects, and why certain project should get more resources?
TECHeGO shows you how to calculate the time between two dates. It doesn't matter if you're using the same or different units of time. Check out our post to see how we break it down.
Recently, we created an advanced sales management system for sales CRM and outsource management in Podio called SnO (Sales and Outsourcing). SnO lets you look for contractors, take bids, monitor projects, and quote prices to clients all in one place.
For customer #L-0493 we needed to pull a contacts email addresses into a calculation field and make it a mailto link. (a mailto link opens up whatever email client you have setup, and it puts in the receipient automatically) This was a bit tricky as calculation fields don’t support direct html. However they do support markdown, which is how we figured out how to get mailto links working!
At TECHeGO, we often integrate with platforms to extend Podio's capabilities and functionality for our clients. From time to time we come across an API that is so cool we have to create an extension and offer it to our clients for free.
