How can we improve TSheets?

Raise 50-result/item limit for jobcode GET and POST actions.

It would be good if the limit of 50 jobcodes would be raised a bit. I understand the need for the a limit of some kind, but when dealing with thousands of job codes, as I am, having such a low limit severely slows down sync actions between our local DB and TSheets.

I suspect that a higher limit would both speed up certain operations as well as reduce server stress on your end by reducing the number of GET and POST actions needed.

    Hello JD, yes, you can configure the number of per_page, but the max is a min of 50 -- which is waaaay to min.

    I haven't studied the api in depth but wouldn't it be possible to have the initial sync, then just sync modified items after wards. It would be a slow sync at first but then depending on the interval of syncs would keep the amount of changes down.

    Correct, but the maximum number is 50. That's pretty limited when dealing with thousands of jobcodes and results in many small queries instead of a few large ones. That, in turn, slows down syncing operations with our in-house database.
