FreshBooks ClassicCreate Project

Podio is a flexible that app that makes it easy to create and manage almost any process, with customizable apps to manage anything you want including projects. This integration makes it easy to add items from a Podio app to FreshBooks as new projects.

Once you set up this Podio to FreshBooks integration, new Podio items from that point forward are individually added to FreshBooks as new projects.

Note: This Zapier integration doesn't create FreshBooks projects from existing Podio items, only items that are created after you've set it up.

How It Works

  1. A new Podio item is created
  2. Zapier adds the data submitted to FreshBooks as a project

What You Need

  • A Podio account
  • A FreshBooks account
