I use Integromat extensively for our business automation. It ties together dozens of different apps/services, allowing us to synchronise many different contact & product/service databases. Basically, its the glue the holds our company together.
It goes without saying I’d be using Integromat with Adalo. But, here lays my first hurdle. I’m looking at the Adalo API documentation page - specifically, the page for my Contacts table and I’m missing 2 critical features: the ID field & Search function.
Integromat allows me to perform the following functions/tasks/actions, but one of the most important ones, Search, is missing. Looking further into this I don’t see a Search feature on the API documentation page.
A customer or technician updates contact information in another app/service. This information is then disseminated to all other services and the contact information is kept up to date across multiple systems. Across all the system we have a field for XeroContactID. This data does not change and is perfect for unique customer identification. Without a Search function in Adalo, how can I find the customer record?
In Integromat there is a List Records function, but this will pull the entire Customer database. While it will work our data/traffic usage would go through the roof!
Integromat does allow us to retrieve individual records by using Adalo’s Record ID field. But when I look at my Adalo database there is no Record ID field visible. Clearly, this is present in Adalo but not exposed in my database view nor does the Adalo API documentation provide any reference to this.
Once again, I’m at the point where I feel like the last couple of weeks effort has been a waste of time.
