Any way to avoid duplicates on App?Completed
Hi Team Podio,
I'm wondering if there is any way to avoid duplicate data to be input on a App - For ex. lets say that I'm adding leads to an app.. but someone on my team added as well the same lead.. it's any property that allows to index a field (something like primary Key in most object Data Bases)- just like it's available when importing from excel??
I love Podio !!!... but duplicate data is give me a hard time !!!
Thanks in advance
I'm afraid there is currently no feature that helps to automatically prevent duplicates in your app.
For now, the way to go is to use the search tool to see if that item you are about to create already exists:
If you have access to a developer, you could also build this functionality using our API:
That said it is something we have as an input and I'll make sure to add your votes on it! Hopefully it can be something that will be possible in the future - thank you all for your feedback.

Hi. When is the unique key functunality going to be added, i am really trying to roll podio out to 500 users but you are making it very difficult for me to pitch podio for the global company. Small things like this and making a file attachment mandatory, come on guys, these are basic things. I would like to know time frames. People have been asking for these simple things for years?
You could actually use Citrix GlobiFlow to avoid duplicates (available on our Premium tier):
The functionality is already available here. GlobiFlow is now a part of Citrix and included in the Podio Premium subscription.

Being able to mark a field as having to be unique, would be a huge help.
The globiflow automation is a clunky workaround, and is only helpful if using a webform or separate app to enter all of our leads.
Is there anything we can do to help get this feature added? A kickstarter maybe? :P
It seems it would help a lot of people out.
Why do we still have no way to prevent duplicates that doesn't include me creating a webform app and pushing it over into my leads app? Do you know how many Zaps I have set up? Do you know what I would have to do in order to set those all up again? We need duplicate prevention!!! PLEASE, for the love!!!!!
