Once you’ve convinced your boss and colleagues that a productivity tool actually makes sense, you would probably end up using Podio.
Don’t get me wrong. There are tons of great project management & productivity software out there. Trello, Asana, Blossom, just to name a few. And Podio.
Do you wonder how you can get the most out of Podio as your main productivity tool? The answer would be to integrate it with a feedback tool such as Usersnap.
Why? Go and read on.
Getting started with Podio.
Podio is a collaboration platform for managing teams, projects, products and anything else you need to manage your business more effectively.
The great thing about Podio is its flexibility.
Podio can and should be adjusted to your personal needs. Doesn’t matter if you’re using Podio for certain projects or for a whole company. Everything from task tracking to meeting, notes and collaboration with colleagues can be stored inside Podio.
Podio as your central hub?
Podio aims to be your central working hub. So everything work-related can take place inside Podio. And I have to admit, it’s a pretty powerful collaboration tool for managing projects and products. And with its great range of available Podio integrations you can do even more awesome things with Podio.
Since you’re probably already familiar with Podio or are already using it. I’d like to focus on the area of bug tracking & collecting user feedback inside Podio.
Collect customer feedback & track bugs with Podio
So you might wonder: Why should you collect feedback from website visitors and clients inside Podio?
Well, since you’re probably storing all other work-related information inside Podio, why not keep feedback & bugs in one place as well, instead of jumping between various tools?
Never ask for a screenshot
For collecting feedback & bugs from website / app visitors, colleagues or clients, I recommend connecting Usersnap with Podio.
With the Usersnap feedback widget, you never have to ask your client or colleague for a screenshot of a certain bug again.
You just get them automatically delivered via Usersnap to your Podio workspace.
How to set up Podio for user feedback & bugs?
After adding the Usersnap feedback widget to your site or installing the available browser extensions, the next thing you need to do is to connect Usersnap with your Podio workspace.
How can you do that?
It’s super simple. If you’re using an existing Podio account, Podio allows you to send new tasks via email to your Podio projects with a custom email address.
So we just need that email address for connecting with Usersnap. Here’s how you get it.
- Create a new bug tracking workspace or choose an existing one. Be aware that this will be the project where you will start receiving all website feedback and bugs.
- Click on the project settings “email to app” option and a new window will pop up displaying a custom email address.
- Now just copy that email address and paste it into the email integration of Usersnap. This can be found in the 3rd party settings of your Usersnap project:
You’re done. That’s it.
After setting up that Podio / Usersnap integration, you can now start receiving bug reports and feedback from your website visitors or clients.
All tickets will automatically be forwarded to your Podio projects.
Isn’t that awesome?

Should you outsource website testing?
OK, I get it. Everyone wants to get high quality at no cost. Right? It is particularly in software that we see a clear trend towards outsourcing. This is nothing new. Because of the increasing average salaries of developers and the difficulty in finding qualified engineers, many companies are welcoming the idea of outsourcing. When…
What I’ve learned about growth after 1 year in a SaaS business
My journey with Usersnap started about a year ago, on November 3rd 2014. At that point, I’ve already gained some experience as a project manager in a digital agency and a media company. So I was already working on fast-moving projects beforehand. However, the last 12 months have been an incredible journey with a lot…
