    Hi Thomas,

    We appreciate you reaching out to us here in the forum!

    Hi Dana,

    Thank you for your answer.
    In other words, we don't know when the limit is reached and functionality stops working without alert, we can't possibly know, and that there are consqequences for all involved.

    there is revision info in each item. So you could use API calls to monitor your critical APPS.

    "revisions": The latest 8 revisions of the item sorted descending by date [ { "revision": The revision number, ... (see the get revisions operation for details)

    When Revision number is near the limit send alert or take actions ...

    Hi Thomas

    Within a Podio Workflow automation flow, you can call a Procfu script to get the number of revisions for an item

    If you aren't already familiar with it, Procfu is a very widely-used Podio extension that simplifies access to the Podio API.

    You could set up a regular by date/day flow that checks the revision count for an item, and if it is getting close to 5,000, you can create a new item to replace the existing one, and then delete the old one.

    I have used this technique in the Podio systems I manage.
