Monthly Pay-as-you-go billing option available now!

Dear QuivvyTools users,
multiple users have asked us for automatic monthly billing, besides the current prepaid balance option.

Today, we are happy to release this possibility! Just click on top up your account, enter your credit card details (just once), and you will enjoy uninterrupted use of our extension every month (unless you decide to pause or cancel your subscription, of course).

Irrespective of your payment method, all invoices are uploaded to your account on the last day of each month.

And even if you have multiple subscriptions, multiple users and/or change package types, our new intelligent billing system will take care of everything!

For more info, see our FAQ
=> What is my wallet?
=> How do I add credit to my wallet?


Enjoy!
Mike & Tomas @ QuivvyTools

Advanced Podio & Globiflow Search & Filtering

Have you ever needed to search within Podio and/or Globiflow for one of the following?

  • search within the contents of one of your Globiflows (eg a word or sentence within an Email brick)?
  • search for a value within a calculation field (eg all occurences of "moment()")?
  • search by ID or name for a specific Podio field, app or workspace?
  • search by ID or name for a specific Globiflow?


We are happy to announce our revised Search functionality does just that.... and much more!

Using QuivvyTools, you can now...

  • search for everything mentioned above
  • see rich snippets within search results (eg relevant part of the calculation field javascript)
  • click to open different results in different browser tabs
  • click to edit directly within Podio Template or Globiflow flow editor

... and also filter the results by type and organisation (useful if you manage more than 1 organisation)

As always, we depend on your feedback - so please let us know what you think ...

Enjoy!
Mike & Tomas @ QuivvyTools

PS: Special thanks to Francois Cote who helped us a lot in determining the needed functionality :)

Faster Globiflow debugging & Chrome Extension update

We have released another major update of our QuivvyTools Architecture extension for Podio.

This time we focused on faster error debugging within Globiflow and general usability of our Chrome Extension and website interfaces


Read on for more details:

1) Our Chrome Extension will now show Globiflow dependencies & error reporting tightly integrated within the Globiflow look & feel!


2) The QuivvyTools icon will now be shown in 3 different colors (depending on its state) in Podio & Globiflow - which allows for faster lookups & debugging:

=> grey: there is no dependency (meaning you can safely delete this field)
=> green: there is at least 1 dependency (calculation, relationship and/or Globiflow)
=> red: there is at least 1 dependency that contains errors


3) Since Globiflow does not trigger "webhooks" when a Globiflow changes, we have simulated such behaviour via our Chrome Extension. So as of now, every change to a flow in Globiflow will update (refresh) QuivvyTools - meaning manual refreshes are in principle not needed anymore!


4) Error reporting is now also available at the Workspace & Organisation levels, so you can now drill down to every level to quickly fix errors in your Podio/GF setup


5) Everything in QuivvyTools now has unique hyperlinks, so you can open multiple browser tabs, send a direct link to a colleague or create Podio Tiles with relevant links


In conclusion, we are very happy to release these updates, and hope you'll find them equally useful in maintaining the health of your Podio/Globiflow setup.

As always, please do let us know any feedback you might have - your feedback is very important to us!

Enjoy!
Mike & Tomas @ QuivvyTools


PS: please do check out our new video on our homepage or on Youtube, which explains in exactly 2 minutes in what ways QuivvyTools Architecture can help you run your Podio/GF-based business more efficiently

QuivvyTools Architecture out of beta

Hello QuivvyTools users,

We are happy to announce that as of today, the QuivvyTools Architecture extension is out of beta phase. Since we launched the first version of our tool about six months ago, we have done many adjustments and added some extra little features, thanks to the feedback of you - the beta test users. So thank you very much - we could not have done it without you!

All current users will enjoy another week of free use of our extension. Be sure to check the FAQ, and in case of questions/remarks/feedback, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Cheers,
Mike & Tomas @ QuivvyTools


PS: of course we will continue to add new features as we go along (next up is a revision of our Chrome extension with regards to error reporting)

QuivvyTools interviewed by GameChangers for their weekly podcast

As an Authorized Podio Partner, I was recently interviewed by Jordan Samuel Fleming of GameChangers for their weekly Podcast series - with specific emphasis on our newly released Podio extension called "QuivvyTools Architecture".

In Jordan's words:

This is a great episode for anyone who manages their own (or their company’s) Podio system, or for Podio Partners who design and build for multiple clients. In today’s episode we speak with Mike Demunter from Quivvy.

New way of connecting Globiflow in your QuivvyTools account

Hello QuivvyTools users,

We are happy to announce that as of today, we are offering a new way to connect Globiflow in your QuivvyTools account.

This new method replaces the current way of having to add our QuivvyTools Podio user to your workspaces.
We believe this will provide a much more seamless experience for all end users.

Kindly perform a one-time procedure to reconnect your Globiflow account(s) to your QuivvyTools subscription(s), by visiting your QuivvyTools account and reconnecting the organisations for which you want to explore Globiflow dependencies.

Cheers,
Mike & Tomas @ QuivvyTools

QuivvyTools Architecture released

We have launched our Architecture Extension for Podio & Globiflow!

This advanced extension gives you a complete, 360° overview of all your Podio & Globiflow interdependencies.

For example:

  • Before deleting a specific Podio field, double-check whether the field is still being used by certain globiflows, Podio relationships and/or calculations
  • View all incoming + outgoing dependencies from every angle (Globiflow + Podio organisation, workspace, app, item, field)
  • Faster debugging (eg our tool will even tell you exactly which Globiflow bricks to check)
  • Browse or print documentation about your Podio & Globiflow setup

We now launched our extension publicly and hereby invite you to check it out for free at https://quivvytools.com

  1. Connect with your Podio account
  2. Choose the organisation(s) you want to explore
  3. (Optionally) connect your Globiflow account(s)
  4. Start exploring!

It's completely functional & free to use during the beta phase.

Extra features we are currently looking into:

  • Advanced search & filtering
    e.g. search Globiflow bricks containing specific text, search Podio fields & calculation references,...
  • Graphical representation
    generate domain model diagrams of your Podio setup
  • Chrome extension
    click on any field in a Podio template and instantly check its Podio & Globiflow dependencies

ALL feedback (especially with regards to usability & functionality) is very much appreciated!
(use the logged-in support form on our website)

Enjoy :-)
