Any plans to add a modified filter to contacts?

Hello,

Are there any plans to add a filter to the contacts end point (GET
https://api.freeagent.com/v2/contacts) to only return records that have
been created or updated since the date supplied on the modified since
filter. This would help cut down the number of records downloaded and the
time taken to download them when syncing contacts in our CRM with FreeAgent.

Cheers
Phillip

Hi Philip,

We have now added support for sorting contacts and invoices by the
created_at and updated_at dates. So if you want to find recently updated
contacts, you can request that they be sorted by the updated_at field in
descending order:

https://api.freeagent.com/v2/contacts?sort=-updated_at

We have added details in the API documentation:

Thanks,

Hi Phillip

As it happens we’ll be doing a bit of work in this area in the next month
or two. I don’t have the specifics but it will likely be an order_by option
for filtering contacts (only contacts at first) by updated_at, as opposed
to passing in a date as you suggest. This should still really help you in
this situation though.

Cheers,

+1 to having a filter on updated_at / created_at properties, and for
everything, not just contacts.
