Love the ability to generate automatic email with attached PDF.

Still new to this software, so it will take a little time to learn all of the features. Some of the help descriptions on functions are not that helpful.

Great extention for Podio

2015-11-26

For one of my customers I use Globiflow to automate repeating operations. This saves them lots of time and possible errors. I've build over 20 flows to automate all sort of things; autofill times but also sending emails with conformations.

Pros

Sometimes they even add pictures to explain form your own flows. The interface looks great, and the logs helps you to find errors.

Cons

You can't add between items and need to drag them to their position.

Simple yet powerful add-on

2014-06-30

Sending message or task must be to a specific person rather than based on a field.

Pros

If you are a Podio power user, this is a must have! Saves a lot of time with the work flow automation.

Cons

Task and message action not dynamic like the other functions.

Welcome to the 21st Century....

Automate pretty much anything you can think of making Podio do automatically. I believe that software automation like this is a huge game changer that more people need to take advantage of.

Pros

See above. This is the missing link that Podio needs to be truly useful.

Cons

Requires a bit of work to set things up how you want them, but once set it, it just runs.

I utilize a trigger in one app to move all of the relevant details into others, then update fields and add comments so that I know where it has been triggered from.

Pros

Amazing amount of coding options.

I would like to see more application videos.

Enabling Business Applications without Inaccessible Dev Costs

2016-08-16

Globiflow allows Podio by Citrix to be extended to handle almost every operational business need. We've built CRMs, recurring billing, invoicing, PM, and other internal apps on Podio. We wouldn't have been able to do this without Globiflow.

Pros

Incredible functionality for almost everything you can think of.

Cons

Requires technical expertise and understanding. I wouldn't use this unless you're comfortable with concept coding. That said, I wouldn't have it any other way. This is really a professional application.

Podio is incomplete without GlobiFlow

2015-08-18

In fact, we don't even bother with Podio's built-in workflow engine because it's just easier to do it all in GlobiFlow.

Pros

I once reported what I thought was something that was hindering usability.

Cons

GlobiFlow offers a "drop though" sort of metaphor, meaning that execution starts at the top of your flow and works downward.

Globiflow is essential to Podio

2016-10-29

Podio by itself is a useful and easy to use platform for creating just about anything.

Pros

-unlimited flexibility to automate anything -great customer service and a very active user forum -seamless integration with Podio -great value for the price

Cons

Although there is a lot of documentation on how to build what they call "workflows" - there is a learning curve for those of us without technical programming backgrounds.

Recommendations to others considering GlobiFlow for Podio

It took me a while to learn how to use it, but once I did, the automation changed the way we do business and has saved us hours and hours of wasted time inputting data by hand. Since it can do almost anything, a new user would need to spend some time figuring out how they want to structure their workflow in order to make the most use out of it. If you get stuck, like I did, you can also hire outside developers that can help you build your "flows" for a reasonable fee.

Fantastic pugin for Podio

2015-11-06

Apart from adding enourmous amount of functionality to Podio, their customer service is top notch.

Pros

Great functionality, awesome customer service, you get value for your money.

Cons

Slightly complicated to get into, which probably originates in the fact, that it has to, to be able to give the endless possibilities it does.

Awesome enhancement of Podio with awesome support

2015-02-10

I would not be using Podio if not for Globiflow. The service essentially allows me to "program" Podio to fit my needs and preferred work methods. It offers really amazing possibilities and when you get the hang of it you can actually become a flow-adict always thinking of new ways to customize Podio to support a highly automated and streamlined business. Everybody can use it even though the more advanced festures can have a steep learning curve. I currently miss out on even greater possibilities because I am a legal proffesional with only limited understanding of the programming language PHP which can be used to further enhance the click-based use of pre-defined flows. The learning curve is to a great extent mitigated by a truly great user support. The response times are short. You can also request new types of flows to better support your business and you have confidence that these will actually be implemented sometime down the road if they are not quickly rejected. Sometimes the implementation happens within a day!

Pros

Highly customized Podio allows automated and streamlined business Everybody can pretty quick get a hang of the fundamental features and then gradually build more advanced skills from there Fun to work with if you are a little nerdy and likes to optimize everything Amazing user support driven by a very dedicated owner

Cons

Steep learning curve if you want to do utilize more advanced features Poor tools for managing and deploying a large amount of flows results in too much manual labour and increases the risk of errors in your flows (this is the only reason for not awarding the fifth star).

The features are robust and easy to implement.

Pros

Customer Support is the best part by far!

Cons

I have nothing bad to say —whenever we have a question we take it to the User Forum and if we don't get a quick reply we submit a ticket and implement the resolve within hours.

GlobiFlow can run your business for you

2018-05-04

Pros

Automating simple tasks such as emails and reminders is almost comically easy using GlobiFlow.

Cons

Actual Globiflow-provided customer support is limited (although the user-run forum is plenty helpful with many active members). Knowledge of PHP is necessary for more advanced flows. PHP itself is a bit of a silly coding language, though nowhere near as terrible as folks say it is.
