Australian ABN numbers - lookup entity name using calculation field
I'm trying to work out if it's feasible to use script provided by the Australian Tax Office to lookup business numbers, and return the registered business name. So the business number would be a PODIO field, and the lookup would be java code in the calculation field referencing the ABN. The calculation field would use the code to lookup the ABN, returning a business name
You can find sample code here
Any takers? Is this even possible?
there is no built-in way of calling external web services from a Podio calculation field. In order to do this, you would either need to import all the ABN data into Podio or create some sort of proxy service. And if that really gives you what you need depends on how you want to be able to use the business data in Podio. So, the answer is: it depends.
