New Records API Date Filters

20 May 2014 by Kyle Tolle

Our API is a core piece of the service that allows organizations to extend Fulcrum to suit their particular needs. To keep increasing the value and power of the API, we make it a priority to listen to suggestions from our users that make it easier for them to interact with their data.

Part of this power is the ability to retrieve only the records that have been updated since a specific time. This enables things like syncing. But what about filters based on when they were created in the mobile app or within a particular timeframe? This was the idea behind one recent suggestion.

New Date Filters

Today, we announce additional parameters to the Records API that allow developers to filter their datasets more precisely.

Now you can also find records:

  • updated in the cloud before a specific time
  • created in the cloud either before or since a specific time
  • created on a client either before or since a specific time
  • updated on a client either before or since a specific time

Be sure to check out the details in the updated records documentation.

Adding these features into the Fulcrum API means your application can focus more on the business logic and become more straight-forward to maintain. It’s also easier to build advanced workflows to streamline your organization’s processes.

This is just one of the many examples where user feedback helps determine which features we release next!

Let us know if you have any questions related to these new features or have a suggestion of your own.
