Podio Time Tracking Setup
Podio time tracking is now possible with Hubstaff. To enable this first, you need to set up the integration in your account.
Here are the steps to setup your Podio Integration:
IMPORTANT: You must connect your account in order to see tasks that are assigned to you.
First, click on Integrations on the sidebar menu. Then make sure you have selected the correct organization on the top right corner of the page. Next, select the Podio logo from the list of available integrations.
You will be asked to give your integration a name. You can choose anything here, the name is only for your reference. Click the Create Integration button to authorize Hubstaff to access your Podio account (if you are not currently logged into your Podio account you will be given a chance to do so).
After logging in and clicking Grant access, you will be taken to the final step of the integration where you can connect your Hubstaff projects with Podio Workspaces and your Hubstaff users with your Podio users. If you don’t have a Hubstaff project already set up to connect to your Podio workspace, that is not a problem. You can still click the link button and create a Hubstaff project on the spot.

After linking a Podio workspace and a Hubstaff user, your integration will sync in the next 30 minutes or so. Once it has synced, 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:
Time tracked on specific Podio tasks will be posted to Podio when the task is marked as completed through Hubstaff.
Tasks might not sync right away in which it can take approximately 15 minutes after linking your team for tasks to be reflected. Also, please keep in mind that each time you add a new project or user to your project management tool, the integration needs be refreshed in Hubstaff for those changes to take effect, then link those accordingly.
Currently, when you add a new project in the project management third-party provider, you need to access the integrations page in Hubstaff > refresh the projects list > link the new project > assign team members to the Hubstaff project that’s linked to the newly added project.
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.
