Pros

I loved the ease of deployment and the UX on the admin end. It was very easy to segment and follow what was going on and was even fun to play with different options.

This was a much appreciated improvement. A great feature is that you can integrated with the big social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook to allow CC to responde quite quickly.

Pros

I love the check lists on it, and I really love the ease of use. We have different workspaces, and it's linked in with gmail, so, I can create a task automatically.

This software has outstanding features such as it has the great ability to create the custom folders in a more efficient way.

I really like the functionality of Podio, the fact I can create my own apps, as per my needs, and also choose from a vast pool of options, makes Podio a great and powerful tool.

Tremendously disappointing for a company that sells ticketing software to have such a poor interaction when it comes to using it.

Hence, sharing of projects is so difficult for the beginners and users. This software lack a lot of features which is very essential for the new users.
