Bulk update items?

We would like to update like 200 items in one API call. Is this possible (like setting a category field)?

For now the only option I see is uploading a file and import it. But I am not sure it will update or add items.

For now you only have two options:

  1. Update each item individually
  2. Upload an excel file and use the importer. The interface can be a bit daunting, but it will do the trick. You specify columns that should be treated as unique (this will control whether existing items will be updated or new ones will be created

We do plan on offering a bulk update API operation, but we are not there yet.

All the best,

Yes,

while we are developing more and more into Podio, this is getting quite an issue. Setting several items at once for a certain status is pretty much needed, now I kick into a rate-limit quite fast if we don't watch out. 

Just posting big JSONS in the POST request would be great.

Any progress on this? We are suffering with the limits right now, just setting a status of a number of participants to 'sent invitation', which can be hundreds.

Throwing my hand in the air on this one too - not just the API but the web interface. Would like to (a) search/filter on a condition then (b) update field(s) in the result set with the same value.

Another vote for this. I would like to select a number of items in a list and chang/add tag to all of them at once.

This feature is a must. All good for the Excel import, but for quick data manipulation this method is not the most efficient one. You got my vote for Bulk update items!

+1... I've recently integrated Zapier into my workflow which has made my customer outreach monumental (ie as items change from one to the other specific email templates get sent out with parsed data referencing that specific client's order info). An update like this could help me turn my podio system into an enterprise class business where it seems like we're hundreds of employees. Please consider this update along with printing reports (and by reports I mean "reports" - not the analytics you all call "reports" which is super confusing)

Any updates? We need to change the category in a field for about 200 records and it takes hours to do this manually. Please implement a bulk update where we select items in a view and update a field all at once.

Thank you.

Bulk editing is basics of any information system. How could you omit it? Please add this feature ASAP!

BULK UPDATE ITEMS. Please look at what all these users are saying on behalf of thousands of other users, unheard. This should be a PRIORITY because of the efficiency it would create. Currently, updating hundreds of items is grossly inefficient as it involves huge amounts of time and effort.

I believe Podio is all about creating efficiencies so this is directly aligned with your mission. Could you please bump this up to the highest priority?

I would also be really really happy for the bulk update items feature! Also when using table view, it could be really easy to click just one field I want to change and change the value right away without opening an item.

Yes please. It would be a huge help. Since we have a lot of data in our apps with lots of reference fields it seems way to complicated & risky to constantly export and import data.

We desperately need this feature. You can't us excel importing to update and relationship fields. We have had to sue the API to get around this but now we are hitting a massive issue with rate limited. 

This NEEDS addressing guys - BULK UPDATES NOW!
