FAQ

About Pod

What is Pod?

Pod is the simple iOS calendar that enables you to manage your people as well as your schedule. Learn how it works and why it's better.

Why should I verify my email?

Pod works "out of the box," but verifying your work and personal emails makes Pod much more powerful. With a verified email, Pod enables you to create Lists of contacts, sort your contacts, have conversations, and share interactions with your team.

And if you enable our Google integrations, you get even more power.

Calendar

How do I prevent duplicative notifications for events?

If you would prefer for Pod to send event notifications instead of the default Calendar app, from your iPhone Settings app, tap Notifications, then Calendar and toggle "Allow Notifications" off.

Why can't I see my calendar?

Ensure that you've connected your calendar to the iPhone and that your calendar is toggled on in Pod. Learn how to configure Pod.

Reminders

How do Reminders work in Pod?

Any Reminder in your the Reminders app with a due date will appear on that day in Pod. This includes any Reminders you create with Siri that have a due date. Any reminder you create in Pod will also appear in the Reminders app.

Emails

Can I send emails from Pod?

Pod is not an email client; connecting Gmail to Pod simply enables you to see recent messages with people you're meeting. However, you can compose a new email by tapping the email address on the contact tab. This uses the Mail app to send the message.

Conversations

What happens when I write a comment in Pod?

Comments shows up right on the event for all to see — and other participants are notified.

Linked contacts are not notified. These are simply contacts that you have associated with the event; they are not invited and the event doesn’t show up on their calendar.

Do other attendees need to download Pod?

Nope. People who don’t have Pod will get an email that they can reply to — without signing up for Pod.
