Additional Connection Parameters

Suppress Extended Requests

For the Forms and PartialSubmissions objects Formstack API returns only a part of the fields when querying multiple records. In order to query values of additional fields, Skyvia performs additional extended requests. Such API requests can be performed for each record of such object. However, this can decrease performance and significantly increase the number of API calls used.

The list of additional fields is the following:

Object Field
Forms DB, Deleted, Folder, Language, Viewkey, SubmissionsToday, Encrypted, ThumbnailUrl, SubmitButtonTitle, Inactive, NumColumns, ProgressMeter, ShouldDisplayOneQuestionAtATime, CanAccess1qFeature, IsWorkflowForm, IsWorkflowPublished, Javascript, Html, Fields, HasApprovers, EditUrl, Permissions, CanEdit
PartialSubmissions Data

To reduce the number of API calls, you can select the Suppress Extended Requests checkbox.

Connector Specifics
