    Hi Manu

    You can't create widgets on items. I am not exactly sure what you are trying to do with the widgets, but they are a bit complicated to setup directly through the API. Maybe if you explained your use-case we could help.

    Hi Christian,

    Thanks for the quick reply. I need to add a link for all items for an app. The link is redirected to our app. Is there any way to include a link in the item page in  Podio?

    Thanks

    Manu

    Hi Manu

    I think you should use the app description field for this. It is right under the big green button when viewing an app or item. It supports Markdown, so you can put in the text you like. However I can see that clicking the links doesn't follow them, but enters the edit mode instead. I will get that fixed.

    what about the Embed option in the API. Is it useful?

    Do you need the same link on all items on a different link on each item?

    Hi christian

    Same link for all items in the app . And add id as query string in URL.

    Thanks

    The link is not the same then, as the query string is part of the URL. For this you will need to add an embed field to the app, and then update that with the link including the query string.
