Stop Duplicate Information

I am running a cron job that checks an RSS feed for the latest podcast and posts it. How can I add a function to check the ID or episode number for make sure that it’s not already posted?

Thanks for your help, love this community :+1:

Hi @wallinex, you can use static workflow data to check if certain podcast edpisodes have already been sent so that it only sends new ones, when available. You can find more information on how to do that here and an example of how it works here.

Let me know if that helps or if you have any other questions. Have fun! :slight_smile:

I was looking for that. Nice to know for saving small data.

If you want to save more, the best approach is saving in Mongo, and checking values before posting to discard previously posted feeds, for instance.

I have applied this to check if a previously email was processed or not, and works quite well.
