How deprecated are workspace contacts?

Every place in the API that includes a reference to workspace contacts also includes a note that says they're deprecated and going to be removed soon. And yet they seem to be fully supported in the app. I can create a card that lets me manage my workspace contacts and I can even create a Contacts type field and assign it to workspace contacts.

Has there been an announcement of some sort that this feature is going away, or is Podio just changing how they'll be working over the API? How long have these endpoints been deprecated, anyway?

We have now removed workspace contacts for all new organisations created from today November 24, 2016.

Workspace contacts are still available for organisations created before this date. Read the full news here.

Hi Alex,

In December Podio introduced the new Contact App type - you can read about it in this blog post. We generally encourage people to use the contact app instead of workspace contacts. 

I don't know exactly when we are going to stop support for workspace contacts. It is still a widely used feature so we need to make sure people can safely migrate their data to the new contact app.
