Updating a property based on HOW it was updated!

I have a client who has an app integrated with HubSpot. This controls a field called App_Status. 


The app failed to update the app_status of contacts in HubSpot, so I did a mass upload to update their app_status. 


I am wondering if Ops hub has the ability to look at HOW the app_status field was created and update fields based on HOW the app_status was updated. For example, app_status updated via a list import or app_status was updated via an api. 


Any help is APPRECIATED as this would be huge rather than going through 4K contacts to manually make these updates.


Thanks in advance!

You may have to do some API work, but the APIs for individual records contain a propertiesWithHistory parameter. This will return the history of the properties you want and then you can see the sourceType to see where the update came from. Check a few using that endpoint and you might have enough information to build a workflow with a few custom actions and run your data through it.


Looks something like this for the properties you specify:
