API Limits

By default, Podio returns 20 records per query. To return more records, append &limit=n where n <= 500 (the maximum allowed by Podio) to the query. To return data beyond the first 500 records, use the limit and offset parameters. For example, to start at the 501st record and get the next 200 records:


To retrieve more than 500 records, pagination is required.

Pagination Method

Podio returns a maximum 500 records per query and each response provides a total value to indicate the total number of records. To page through the data, use the offset and limit parameters in your Podio query.

Refer to Data Sources with Multiple Pages for details on how to handle pagination.

Date Parameters

Podio uses a number of date parameters, all of which use the following formats:

yyyy-MM-dd hh:mm:ss
