I feel it would be very helpful if the import wizard would allow us to map items on Unique ID. I see the case when we have data in Podio and have to import new data to another app - referencing the existing ones. I would then love to easily map the reference by simply one field - the Unique ID.
Say I have a project app and every project has a unique id. Now I need to import large number of tasks or timesheets to that - in Excel I could easily have the unique ID and then safely match on that. The "first field in item" is not necessarily unique (especially when it is about people names, company names,...) and why introduce another "unique field" when there is already the internal?
What would also be possible - allow calculated fields in the mapping. I could then have a (temporary) field that does only reference the unique ID - or build up some artifical unique key.
Hope this makes sense?
