I really miss the app sidebar widgets that Podio had until circa mid-2014. They allowed apps to look different. It was easier to get visual context, and you also got more information on the app overview.
One thing I miss the most on the app overview screen is my charts. I LOVE visual things.
With a recent update to the SuperMenu, it's now possible again.
For this example, I'll cover creating a new chart as well.
First, create a new image tile in the app's reports:
No need to actually upload an image:
Then, in GlobiFlow, create a new chart in this app:
And configure it as you wish. Just make sure it's set to update the newly created image tile:
Next, go back to your Podio reports for the app, and click the new "SuperMenu: Add to App SideBar" icon that appears on hover:
When you go back to the main app overview, you will now see the chart injected in the app sidebar above the views:
Note that you can add pretty much any widget from the reports section to the app sidebar.
