Sending in-app messages to Podio users

Sometimes tasks and chat messages in Podio are just not enough. If something is very important, you want to make sure you see it, or maybe someone else sees it.

You can now generate a pop-up message in Podio for users who have the SuperMenu installed, with a little help from the ProcFu script supermenu_send_message.

  • msg_title : string - title in the pop-up
  • msg_text : text - body of the message - note: supports markdown but not html

You can also specify an expiry function for when the message should expire (30 days by default) and a callback url for when the message is marked as read (eg a GF webhook).

And the result in Podio:
