Podio Summary Tables: Display Related App Info

Uncategorized May 22, 2020

Podio apps can get long...with seemingly endless scrolling. One solution is to store key information in a secondary app. But then we run into issues navigating back and forth. Enter Summary Tables! Display related app information in a neat, concise table format (and navigate to the app if you need more detail)

Sample Calculation: 

var header = "["[email protected] of Property+"]("+''[email protected] of Unique ID (Hidden)+")"

var label1 = "Status"
var label2 = "Zestimate"
var label3 = "Bedrooms"
var label4 = "Bathrooms"
var label5 = "Type"
var label6 = "Link to Comps"

var value1 = @All of Status
var value2 = "$"[email protected] of Zestimate.toFixed(0).replace(/\B(?=(\d{3})+(?!\d))/g, ",")
var value3 = @All of Bedrooms
var value4 = @Sum of Bathrooms.toFixed(1).replace(/\B(?=(\d{3})+(?!\d))/g, ",")
var value5 = @All of Home Type
var value6 = "[Zillow Comps]("+ @All of Zillow Comps + ")"

var markdown = header +" | "+ "\n --- | ---\n";
markdown += label1 +"...

var estimateunique = @ESTIMATE UNIQUE

var deal = "[DEAL]("+dealunique+")"

var apt = "[APT]("+aptunique+")"
