pre-filter app reference field

    Hi everybody,

    I have some great news to share today. You can now filter relationship fields in Podio!

    By using filters in the App view, you can now filter out certain items from your apps by saving a view of your liking and use that for filtering in the app template.
    This will give you a better way of archiving app items and decide only to have active items show up in your relationships. I hope you like it!

    Please let us know what you think and if you have any questions always feel free to let us know :-)

    Hi all,

    Thank you for your input on this. I've re-shared your comments with the product team so they can review them in future improvements to Podio.

    +1 This is a rather huge issue thinking about using this system longterm. Please provide a way to do this.

    There appears to be a data security issue with Filtering from App view when filtering against related fields if the related field is related by a view instead of all items.

    User 1 : 

    e.g. WorkspaceA.App A.Items { 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 } 

    WorkspaceA.App A.View1 = {1, 5, 10 } 

    Login into WorkspaceB.App B as User 2

    WorkspaceB.App B.ReferenceField1 to App A.View1

    + WorkspaceB.App B.ReferenceField1 will correctly pull only items {1, 5, 10} 


    + WorkspaceB.App B.Filter against ReferenceField1 will pull all items from App A { 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 } , thus showing sensitive information contained in WorkspaceA.App A item title. For example, using the title of

    [1] John C Smith | 910sdafa-90 | $2,000,000 | Prudential Insurance Company Of Americaz

    will show User 2 a complete drop down list and enabled search against Workspace A.AppA.Items which they should never see since the reference from B to A is a "Filtered view" restricting the results to {1, 5, 10}
