Get Tasks doesn't return Created ByAnswered
One of the most important data of a task "Created By" is not included in Get Tasks.. Can you please include this also as we are working on a number of Task list API implementations. https://developers.podio.com/doc/tasks/get-tasks-77949
Get Task returns this data but calling Get Task for each tasks is not seems a good idea in terms of performance and API limit!
Generally we always consider carefully what data to return in each API call. Performance dictates less data should be returned while easy-of-use and reduction of API calls dictates the opposite.
I can't change this right now, but I can tell you that we have started work on making it possible to specify exactly what data to return in each API call. This work has however just started and there is still a lot to do before we can make it available. Until then I am afraid you will have to make multiple calls.
That said we generally recommend that integrations through the API focus on apps, as they are generally much more flexible than tasks and lend themselves better to modeling of work flows.
Yes I understand less data means better performance.. but if you see the output of "Get Tasks" you can see it returns a huge amount of irrelevant data in the "ref" field. http://pastebin.com/XuhVNQt0
But one of the most important data in a Task - Created By - is not returned. :(
If you look at the data structure of Created By in Get Task - its very minimum data http://pastebin.com/JXta8nSi
It will be really really great if you can reconsider this and add it.. we are working on a number of custom task lists & exports for various Podio customers and this is one of the mandatory data to be shown.
Thanks and Regards,
Looking at it closer, it is actually already possible to get the created by in that call: https://developers.podio.com/doc/tasks/get-tasks-77949
Just set the parameter "view" to "full" and it should be there.
