API: item.note_count


I'm using the Todoist API.

At one point, each item would possibly have a note_count field. I used this to determine whether or not to use /api/getNotes to query for the item's notes.

It appears recent items do not have this field, so in order to check for notes, I have to call /api/getNotes for each item, which seems wasteful.

Was this removal intentional? Is there any other way for me to know whether or not an item has notes?

Hello Nic,

According to the developers, it's indeed deprecated and the note count needs to be calculated. If you are implementing a full client, please use our Sync API (and fetch all active data).
