Copying Podio data to MySQL cannot be simpler. You just need to perform the following three simple steps.
Specify necessary connection parameters for Podio.
Specify necessary connection parameters for MySQL.
Skyvia supports secure connections to MySQL.
Select Podio objects to replicate.
Just select check boxes in a list of Podio objects (e.g. Items, Tasks, etc.). If necessary, you can tweak it in more details - replicate only part of Podio fields and filter data to replicate.
You don't need to prepare the MySQL database - Skyvia creates the tables corresponding to the Podio objects - Items, Tasks, etc. - automatically.
Skyvia can more than just create a copy of the Podio data in MySQL - it can keep this copy in an up-to-date state automatically. All you need is to configure a schedule when to update the MySQL replica database.
With Skyvia you can copy all the data from a Podio object or disable replication for some Podio object fields. You can also configure filters for data to replicate.
If you need more than just to copy data from Podio to MySQL, you may use Skyvia's powerful data import functionality. Skyvia's data import tools will correctly extract Podio data, transform it, and load to MySQL when MySQL tables have different structure than Podio objects.
