Podio Time Tracking Integration Setup

The Podio Integration allows you to move tasks from Podio directly to our time tracking platform.

Only the user with an Owner/Organization manager role on Podio can set up an integration.
You must connect your account in order to see tasks that are assigned to you.

Time tracked from the Hubstaff application will sync back to the Podio task as a comment.

Here are the steps to set up your Podio Integration:

Step 1

First, make sure you have selected the correct organization on the top right corner of the page, then click on Settings & Policies > Integrations on the sidebar menu. Next, select the Podio logo from the list of available integrations.

menu settings & policies integrations

Step 2

Login to authorize Hubstaff to connect.

Step 3

Select the Podio organization you would like to link to Hubstaff, then hit Next.

Step 4

Afterwards, sync your Podio projects. Furthermore, you may choose to sync all existing projects, or manually choose from a list of projects you wish to connect.


Step 5

After connecting projects, connect users to your integration. You can select/unselect all users, choose individual users, and/or automatically add new users to this integration in the future. Click Finish to complete the integration set-up.


Step 6

Each team member should receive a confirmation email. Click Connect my Podio account to continue.

Authorize the integration by clicking the Connect button.

Then, login to your Podio account. After logging in, then the set-up is complete.

Step 7

Your integration will sync in the next 30 minutes or so. Once it has synced, then any of your linked users will be able to see their assigned Podio tasks in the Hubstaff app and be able to track time to them.

Select the project name from the project list located on the left side of the app, then click the Play button next to the task name on the right-hand side. Additionally, Podio supports task completion, and you can press the Complete button to mark the task as completed.


Task write-back

After tracking time to a task, and depending on your integration time logging settings, you’ll see the time written back as a comment on the Podio task page:


Tasks might not sync right away in which it can take approximately 15 minutes after linking your team for tasks to be reflected.

Keep in mind that any change to Podio project will require re-authentication. Currently, when you add a new project in the project management third-party provider, you need to access the integrations page in Hubstaff then refresh the project list and then, reconnect the new project.

This integration supports logging time back to the integration as comments. To learn more, click here.

Tasks can be completed outside of Hubstaff in the project management tool to have the time synced as well.

Tasks synchronized with an integration will remain in Hubstaff as a simple task if the integration is deleted.
