Out of the box, Podio/Podio Workflow Automation has a perfectly serviceable send email action — if you don’t mind generic, Podio branding.
This Sway details how a much more complex flow in Podio Workflow Automation coupled with waiting webhooks in Zapier can get that email template sent via Gmail — and then the merged content saved as an item in its own Podio app as well.

The Podio Product Roadmap call on the 19th was perhaps a little less impressive than I had hoped for. But I must confess that I like the colors on the UX Beta. And I’ll have to retire my well-worn, well-recieved line about how in a cloud platform industry on innovation overdrive, there stands the Podio User Interface, as if frozen in Amber.
My Wine & Spirits Importer Client project is moving ahead steadily. The data model for SKUs, Brands, Wineries & Varietals is coming together nicely, as is a Globiflow automation that looks up the producer based upon brand terms (sometimes 1:1 more often 1:many). Researching all the terms takes the time; adding it to Podio is what triggers the iterative search over the hundreds of SKUs.
My Tutoring of an Atlanta area Operations Manager for a Real Estate firm may pay a divident of a second such client.
One of Podio’s longstanding weaknesses has been dashboards and business intelligence visualizations. So I was pleasantly surprised to discover this app, ChartGrids.com
By drilling down through Podio Org to Workspace to the App whose data you want to visualize, you can combine charts from different apps into a dashboard. Right now it’s only bar charts. But area charts, pie charts and donughts charts are on their way.
