Podio App Bloat

What is app bloat? App bloat is when one app holds the majority of the data and process. It may seem counterintuitive at first to spread out your data over several apps instead of keeping it all together. However, when one app has a lot of data, organization and segmenting is lost. Avoid app bloat – instead of one single large app that is unwieldy to scroll through, section the data off into different apps connected with relationships. Relationship fields allow apps to communicate with each other, so you don’t have to enter in duplicate information.

Relationship fields link projects and clients together. You can view more information about the client or the proposal by clicking on the summary card. In the example below, I could click on the ‘Internal – DVI – Marketing’ summary card that is next to the ‘Proposal’ field and would be able to view the proposal itself without leaving the app that I am currently on.
