Add API Integration
Adding API integration would allow users to develop 3rd party applications to gather data from this system and put it into a common data base where other important company data exists.
The purpose would be to allow users to begin to look at KPIs specific to their business which would include the data form this application.
One of the biggest problems that I run into as a small business is figuring out how to integrate all of the different information systems within our organization. API makes that an easy solution to this problem.
Thanks for sharing your idea, Troy. Requests for an open API have started to steamroll, so we’ll be looking into this. This year, one of our goals is to increase the number of integrations available with ClockShark, and this connects nicely with that.
Since all of our feature additions come from customer requests, we’ll be closely monitoring the feedback this idea generates. Please keep voting, folks. If you have any ideas for software integrations, or would like to share what software your company uses, feel free to let me know @ firstname.lastname@example.org.
Good looking app. All the required features for construction jobs.... BUT no API = No Sale
Any progress on getting this API out?

I think adding a standard Web Service API is the biggest addition ClockShark could make. When your software is integrated with other software within the organization it becomes very sticky within the organization.
Echoing another comment, we use a CRM system to create jobs. We would like to connect the creation of these jobs within CRM to the creation of a corresponding job in ClockShark for scheduling and execution.
On the other end of the process, we would like to take the hours worked and feed them into our accounting/invoicing system.
Until this feature (API) is available it is difficult for any larger company to use ClockShark.
We have a ticketing system for our employees. For us Jobs are ticket numbers. We would want to use the API to develop software that would push our Jobs to ClockShark and optionally locations that may be associated with these Jobs.
ClockShark doesn't even let you import these things much less push them from an API.
do you offer any API integration?

Smartsheet is a database program online that allows all of my team to view data sheets online from anywhere. Also as a business owner my office staff can use these sheets for projects etc. What would be beneficial is if I could get Clockshark to merge the data it collects onto my Smartsheet system. My company would have instant access to field work. I realize not everyone uses Smartsheet but the companies that do could benefit and visa versa!
