Podio Category Fields skip if not found

19 August 2019

Is there something I can do to prevent a sync from failing if the category field option is not found. Can a script snippet be written that would simply skip that field or item if the value is not found in Podio?

Are you referring to an error you get like this?

Error: Cannot lookup [id] value in '{0}' for text value '{1}'

Customer :

Yes, on the text or numerical values

The best option available currently would be to filter out those values that do not have a corresponding category field in Podio.

You could use a Dynamic Column to loop through a set of known category values and if your source value is not found either return a default value or null.

This way an invalid value is not sent through to the PodioWriter and then cannot throw and error.
