Months ago I faced a very big bug in Podio: The limit of 5000 revision is not a rolling limit, but a hard limit. Off cource a very big design failure and not clearly mentioned. After you hit the limit, you can never change anything in your item!!
So prepare to migrate to a database you can edit as long as you want and leave Podio as soon as possible.
I have contacted the support department but they only repeat it is a mentioned somewhere on the site as a known limitation. On this page it is mentioned as;
- Item revisions: 5,000 revisions (excluding calculation field changes)
Every database engineer will read this is the last 5000 and not as fixed 5000. I have tried to explain this to the support department, but they do not listen and do not provide any solution. As soon as you reach the limit the item is read only and becomes useless in my case.
Conclusion: make sure you leave podio before your data becomes fixed!
Support is telling me to start a 'feature request' for some big mistake they made in their design... Feature request are just a way to stop the discussion. Requests are there for years and nobody is doing anything at Podio to provide solutions.
