GlobiMail for Podio overview

What is GlobiMail for Podio?

If you've been using Podio for any length of time, you've no doubt fallen in love with it. Podio's extreme flexibility gives it power beyond any other work management platform.

One missing business process that keeps coming up is integration with email. Yes, Podio is great to manage data, but customers like to use email. And although you can invite customers to Podio Workspaces and share individual Podio Items with them, most don't want to log into another system or learn another platform.

Enter GlobiMail to the rescue.

GlobiMail is a Podio add-on that allows you to get your email conversations into Podio automatically. And the best part is that you can keep using your normal Email Client - no need to change how you do things.

Once you hook up a Podio App to GlobiMail, a new comment will be placed with each Item giving you a link to click on to reply to that contact, or to compose a new message to that contact.

Such emails are automatically routed through the GlobiMail servers and email bodies are added to the relevant Podio Item as comments. Your customers simply reply to your email, and in turn you simply reply to theirs. Any email thread initiated this way will be captured “automagically”.

Each email comment added in Podio, additionally includes a link to allow you to easily reply to that specific message.

One of the exciting new features in GlobiMail lets you even see if / when your customer read your email. This is something you can't even do with regular email.

There is also a BCC Drop Box feature for each App, that lets you simply forward any out-of-context email to GlobiMail to be added to the correct Item.

Review Source: GetApp

We had a virus on our system that caused up to be blocked by spamhausse. We could not get our podio/globiflow emails out as we were using our own server to send emails via Globiflow. We started to use Globimail as a temporary alternative, however once we started using it we could not go back to the old way of sending emails. Globimail is able to track our emails and let us know if they got bounced, were delivered and even when they were opened. It allows full traceability allowing us to follow up on quotes when we see whether the customer opens the email or not.

Pros
Traceability, Value, Ease of use,

Cons
Some emails tend to get trashed when they are delivered.

I absolutely love it. Critically valuable tool for tracking emails within the Podio framework.

Pros
I love how easy it is to set up and use. Best option ever for a team using Podio to get visibility into all emails with a lead or customer in their system. I recommend this tool to clients all the time.

Cons
Where and how the email templates are stored can be a bit confusing at first, but great once you learn how.

Useful Podio automation for some but not all

Pros
Globimail integrates pretty seamlessly with Podio and offers a level of email visibility that the standalone product does not. The ability to manage attachments is a huge plus, as other products struggle with this. Unintimidating, as opposed to Globiflow which may present a challenge to those that are less comfortable with basic coding and workflows.

Cons
If you have some basic comfort level with Globiflow (the Podio automation platform), you can find workarounds for the issues addressed by Globimail. On the flip side, if you are looking for strictly email management you may be better off using Mailchimp or the like. Globimail operated in this weird middle ground for me, but for those that are totally locked in to Podio and less comfortable with creating a Globiflow "model", you may find these features useful.

Transition to GlobiMail has been seamless, tools are easy to use and properly priced

Used daily for less than 6 months

Pros
We've tried some of the other plugins to get our GMail and Podio communicating together in the past but nothing has been flexible enough that it made sense to keep using after the trial/testing period. GlobiMail is exactly what we were looking for and was easy to dive in and start using. We were live within a week and it seems like every week that passes there is some new cool feature for us to start playing with and seeing how it can benefit us. The fact that there is a Podio workspace that serves as a hub for GlobiMail news and support is very convenient too. This team really knows how to make the most out of Podio as a SupportDesk/CRM system.

Cons
I would say that there have been a few times where I clicked "send" on the GlobiMail Browser-Based Email and the error message returned was not descriptive enough. There is a proper error log in the admin, but it would be nice to see the full error as the user too.

Keeps all correspondence regarding any given topic in one place on the Podio item. We use this to send out quotes, POs, Invoices, etc., so if there are questions, they are logged directly back to the originating Podio item.

Pros
Easy integration of email conversations with Podio items.

Cons
Setup can be a confusing, especially when trying to echo messages to primary email.
