count open task for progress
I'd like to count the open tasks of an app item to trigger the progress bar. If the second issue (triggering the progress bar) is not able, the relation of open and done task would also do it.
Thanks for your help :)
counting tasks is not (yet?) possible with calculation fields, unless you mean that you have a separate app for tasks (not the native Podio tasks). If in fact you have two apps (one with items, one with tasks), then you could try what I described here: https://help.podio.com/hc/communities/public/questions/201849698-Counting-number-of-related-apps
Hope that helps! Best,
What is the plan for the Calculation field? It seems quite limited so far. Is this a focus of the Podio team or something that will take a year to improve?
thanks for your great feedback. We do not use a seperate app for tasks, so we can't use your workaround Stefan. I already thought about using the api and webhooks but it feels like "Die Kirche ums Dorf tragen" ;)
I really hope that there will be a way to do more things like that (selecting and triggering fields / tasks) in the future
The ability to count referenced fields (as opposed to sum, avg) would be very useful. I used Stefan's workaround in order to provide a calculated progress field in the projects app that averages progress of all related items across multiple deliverables apps. Providing a method to count related items would be much cleaner.
