    As a person who spends every waking hour in Podio, I am definitely sensitive to the nature of calculation fields, and I can say for certain that the "short haul" variety of calcs have seen a SIGNIFICANT improvement over the past short while, and it's made using things like markdown tables much more efficient. Thank you to the dev and product teams for all your hard work!

    Thank you, Sumedha and the entire team! We have been looking forward to improved reliability and speed in our calculations. Because most of our most-used apps contain more than 1000 items, we also are looking forward to your upcoming improvements for those calculations for more than 1000 items.

    In fact, if you could clarify for me, is the 1000 limit on calculations for any app having 1000 items? The follow-on question is whether this limit is when calculations occur as one change in a a single field is made for a single app item in an app having 1000 items or only when the template is Modified for a given app that is 1000 items?

    Mark Cannon To clarify your question, the calculation delays should now be less for requests with less than 1000 calculations. When we say calculation, it means one change in a single field, like you rightly put. 

    We have improvements for Bulk calculations also in the pipeline! Stay tuned.

    Appreciate the release. Liked the UI change in Desktop Browser Version.
     
    I think you should also look into the 10 field dependency issue in podio calculations. This is a bottleneck. 

    Thanks

    I'm sure this is the case for a lot of customers but some of the viewing and filtering limitations mean an excess use of calculations where it's not really the design purpose.
    We've had to use calculations in order to pull data in from other related apps. This is no doubt costing you in storage and performance, duplication isn't a good thing.

    For example we want to display a contacts email address in the table view of businesses and for excel exports.
    The only way to do this is to create a calculation field in businesses and pull the email from the related contact/s into that field. This is the same for every field you wish to include in an excel export or display on the listing page.

    In a normal database you would be able to select fields from relations in a query, you'd also be able to filter on things that are not containing, do not equal etc. Podio really lacks in this department.

    I totally agree on this one, with David! We had to do the same thing in our Applications just to display related fields (using a lot of JavaScript) in related items. 

    I hope this could change!
