Overview

The first time you add a Podio card to a FLO, you will need to create a configuration. This will allow you to connect to your account, save your account information, and reuse that configuration next time you build a FLO with the connector. That way, you don’t have to sign in every time you want to build a FLO with this Connector. Instead, use the configuration you have already set up. You can create and save multiple configurations and share them with your teammates.

Here’s how to set up a new configuration in Podio:

  1. First, enter in an Account Nickname. This should be unique so if you are connecting multiple Podio accounts you will be able to tell them apart.
  2. Then click “Create” to launch a pop-up window where you will sign into your Podio Account. This will also save your configuration.
