Accessing data from apps in different workspaces (via calculation fields)

Hi,

 

we try to access data from an app in a different workspace. What we did so far:

 

In the App B (Social Media - WiB Marketing Workspace)

1. Connect to the other App A (Newsletter App - WiB Pipeline Workspace) with a connection field

2. Add a calculation field and try to receive the data of the "Time + Name" text field from App A (Newsletter App - WiB Pipeline Workspace)

3. We get an error: "Invalid value null (null): must be string" (which normally should work, as it does in another app)

 

This is what the text field in App A looks like (a regular text field without any particularities)

 

Did we miss anything?

 

Thank's for your help in advance! : )

Hi,

as you see in your 2. image, you get 2 tokens "All of Time + Name" when typien @all of time + name. One is an Incoming token, the other an Outgoing token. If the first one doesn't work, take the other one. 
 You have 2 tokens cause you've in both apps a relationship field which piont to the other app. Such a "vice versa" relation is  - in my opinion - a bad app design. There are only very very few use cases where it's necessary.

Hi Rainer,

thanks for your reply! I already have chosen @all of time + name (Outgoing), sorry for the confusing screenshot, that should show, that the connection between the apps seems to work. Nevertheless I still get the same error ...

The error says: There is either no item related via the selected field/direction or the field name + time is empty in the related item.
If the related item was created in the last days during the slow downs of Podio it could have happened that the relationship was corrupted. Try to remove the item from the relationship field and add it again.
