API Integrations


Userlevel 5
Badge +2

We are standing up a dev team dedicated to APIs. What integrations do you want to see?

 

We are looking to cover 3 main areas (first).

  1. Data - automatically pulling in data to load scorecard metrics
  2. People - automatically adding a new employee / details to your directory
  3. To-dos/Rocks - pushing/pulling data from other task management systems

 

Here are the basic ones I get a lot of feedback on! 

  • Google (for directory purposes, and Google Drive)
  • Microsoft Teams
  • Office 365
  • Quickbooks
  • Zero
  • Asana
  • Trello
  • BrightGauge
  • Zoom 
  • Slack
  • LinkedIn - for auto-filling in directory data

 

Please share your thoughts in the comments!

Slack, Brightgauge, and email notification!

Asana!!!

Slack and Office 365

A well done Zapier integration would cover a large number of use cases.

 

Chrome plugin to capture personal to-dos or send from gmail.

Microsoft Teams, Microsoft 365 (used to be O365), Nutshell (for CRM purposes, unless the CRM/Pipeline will be quite robust), Customization to integrate with our website, and lastly  -- Microsoft NAVISION (would be most helpful for tracking Margin, Revenue, open sales orders, etc.).

In addition to the ability to integrate with other apps, if by APIs you also mean providing APIs so we can programmatically push our data (Scorecard, other) into the Ninety.io system….that would be awesome!  Currently our scorecard is 95% automated, but then it has to be manually entered into your system.

@davelokos that is what we are planning! We really want to be able to fill in those scorecard metrics for you, so a part of the question here is, where should those scorecard metrics pull from? 

 

Thanks to all that have sent suggestions! We are going to work on some aspects of our open API first so that anyone can build an integration, and then we will start targeting specific integrations directly with products mentioned here.

Thanks Christine!  If you need beta testers on the API, sign me up!

Teamwork Projects to create tasks from todos. This could be solved with the Zapier integration though.

Other use cases for API:

  • Add new sales from CRM create a headline in Ninety
  • Complete Ninety todos when tasks are completed in project management system

 

Webhooks so when issues/todos/headlines are created/discussed/solved other tools can be updated. Some use cases for webhooks I can see include:

  • Complete a task in project management tool when a todo in Ninety is completed
  • When a meeting is completed grab the meeting score and add it to the scorecard

I am also up to be a beta tester.

We have been using todoist before starting Ninety, and we liked the reminders, etc., reoccurring tasks, reminders. If you are going to integrate with Google (Gmail, calendar), then the tasks, events, and options should be an easy addition to that. I believe that it will cure a lot of things on google integration. Using API’s will be a major asset to your system's usefulness and help us stay on track, reduce redundancies and wasted time. Thanks, and I am also very interested in assisting with being a beta tester!!

We pull Scorecard data from Domo, Tablaeu and Google Sheets.

We are employing some help from upworks.com  to help with some other data entry and collection of data. We are curious if there is any movement on these API’s coming online anytime soon? We don't want to spend time and money on other ways of getting things done if you are getting close to haveing the open API soon. Please let us know, thanks. 

 

For a software team, any API that can manipulate To-dos would be awesome. We would be integrating it with Github but the way that integration happens might be company specific.

This is exciting! 

I would love the ability to connect to an API and read/write data, issues, to-dos to and from Teams/Power Automate/Power BI/Webhooks.

It’s been 8 months since you posted this. Curious if there is any update on API features? @Christine

Hey @kpieper876 !

 

Thanks for checking in. We are still working on our open API - with the goal of getting key endpoints done this quarter. Then, next quarter the main integration we will be working on is with Zapier.

Thanks for the update… Zapier is great!

Microsoft Teams (anything Microsoft) and Xero would be our next two desired integrations.

Zapier would open a lot of options and seems like it would be easier, no?

We use a CRM for our industry and a task management/workflow system. Having To Dos in two places does not work well. I’ve known a few companies that run on EOS to leave EOS software because of the To Do’s in two places issues. Any company with project management would benefit from a Zapier integration. 

Can we get an update since this was posted 8 months ago?

Hey @agordon!

You may have missed my post yesterday - but zapier is exactly the direction we are going first for the reasons you mentioned!

We are still working on our open API - with the goal of getting key endpoints done this quarter. This is needed before Zapier work can be done. Then, next quarter the main integration we will be working on is with Zapier.

To-Do integration with Microsoft To-Do and integration with Teams would be amazing!

+1 for OpenAPI.  We have want to integrate metrics about how our company is using Ninety/Traction into our unified kpi dashboards.  OpenAPI will be perfect to enable extracting interesting data from Ninety.

Hey Christine! Is an integration between Ninety and Smartsheet on the list? Thanks.

ToDos → Outlook would be great. Two-way sync would be even better.

Integration with Office 365 would be excellent!  Including recurring tasks if possible...

If this will cover logging into Ninety w/ a Google account, i.e. using Google as the identity provider, then I’ll vote for this.

This does seem like a HUGE item to be voting on.  I couldn’t find a separate Google Login item to vote on, but if you break the integrations up, that would allow me to better reflect my vote across the individual integrations (and their purpose).

Thanks!
