    Hi!

    This feature doesn't currently exist in the API right now. It is on the team's radar though.

    You could do something like this... where you iterate of the items in a folder... but it's kinda a hacky way to do it. 

    def get_item_id_by_name_in_folder(folder: Folder, item_name: str):
        for item in folder.get_items():
            if item.name == item_name:
                return item.id
        raise Exception(f"No item found with name {item_name}")
