Having trouble with category integer values when creating an item

    Hi Andy,

    The integer value (called an "option_id" in Podio language) will never change and this is actually a good thing. It means that you can rename each option in the category field without loosing data in your existing items.

    If you want to re-order the options simply go into the app builder and use drag and drop to change the order of the options. They each have a little "handle" you can grab on the left side.

    Does that help?

    Hi Andreas,

    Thank you for the response, that makes sense.

    Is there any way to see what the option_id for each of the categories is?

    Thanks again,

    Andy

    Hi Andy,

    You can use the sandbox at the bottom of this page to get the entire app, including any field definitions. https://developers.podio.com/doc/applications/get-app-22349
