Hope you had a Merry Christmas, a Happy New Year and an enjoyable holiday season!
As we step into 2023, we have a New Year gift for you, one of the most requested features on Podio workflow automation is now live for your exploration. Now go set up a new workflow with the much awaited "File Upload Trigger".
What is new?
We have just added a new feature for Podio workflow automation to trigger a workflow based on file upload (attachment) to app items. This is currently the most requested feature from users in our workflow automation forum, will help support new use cases for automations, and reduce the need for custom workarounds.
On selecting "file upload" as a trigger, new field tokens related to the uploaded file will be available to be used in the workflow. This works for any new file attachment on a Podio item, irrespective of whether it is directly uploaded as an attachment or is linked from a document sharing service like ShareFile.
We also added additional information to support developers and power users to Podio webhook event for file actions: https://developers.podio.com/doc/hooks
- file.change: When attachments on an item change, ie. added, replaced or removed. Provides parameter "item_id", "action_type" and "file_ids". Possible values of parameter "action_type" are: "file_created" or "file_replaced" or "file_deleted". Parameter "file_ids" is a comma delimited string of file id(s).
What's coming next?
We have plans on enhancing this trigger further this year, with better filter capabilities and newer actions that can be triggered based on a new file upload.
