app.create hook?

Why there is no app.create hook?

https://developers.podio.com/doc/hooks

Also comment.delete is missing from the hooks.. Will be great if these two are also available.

There is no app.create hook because we until recently only had app-specific hooks. Since they had to be added under the app, an app.create hook didn't make any sense. We could probably add an app.create hook on the space, but you are the first to ask for that. What is you use case?

The comment.delete hook has in fact been added just earlier this week. I have updated the documentation to mention it.

Thanks for the reply.. and great news about the comment.delete hook..

The use case is an external backup system.. . we are now using a cron job to know about new apps.. but it will be awesome if we have app.create hook.

I put it on our long list of feature requests back in January. Unfortunately it hasn't been prioritized, and no one else has asked for it that I know of. So unless it should turn out to be extremely to add, I doubt it will added anytime soon. But it's certainly possible, yes.

In order to support the backup system that Anz wants to create, I would put in another vote for this hook functionality!  :)

There is a lots of people asking us for a backup solution and we have this ready to roll out but there is no way for us to know when a new App is created inside Podio.. We are relying on Crone jobs but  its not really good

Please see here the popularity of Backup need  https://help.podio.com/entries/21738503-Backup-Strategy

App Delete/Modify is not very important but it will be a huge help to have the App.Create

Yes I forgot that.. app.update and app.delete is already there :)

As you can see backup is a very popular request and we are almost there with a nice solution.. just want to get this hook :).. will be great if you can enable this soon if its not a a big implementation.
