api_imageWhat is an API?

An API (Application Programming Interface) is a powerful tool that is provided by most online PM web applications. It allows you to connect to your account database and features through published functions and interact with it in unique and different ways. In the most basic of uses, it “gets ” and “posts ” data through function calls. Developers are able to use this mechanism to connect business systems together and to automate and/or streamline operations. It also makes them able to create features and connect external 3rd party applications drawing from the data within the app directly.

Examples of Add-Ons

Create a light mobile application interface, add an invoicing system onto an application that only tracks tasks/time, provide a client web portal to submit project requests, extract data automatically each week to generate a specialized report, etc.
