A bumper release of API enhancements πŸŽ‰

We’ve been listening to feedback on how customers use the Float API to interact with team data and supercharge project workflows.

Using the Float API requires some tech know-how, but if you can access the resources πŸ˜‰ tailoring your workflows can cut down on error-prone repetitive tasks, which results in happier planners!

Our latest update focuses on how projects are set up and managed in Float via the API. Now, you can:

Create and manage project tasks directly on projects or phases
This allows you to bulk set up projects with tasks you need quickly. Plus, it shows which tasks are used on a project, so you can tidy up unused ones and keep task lists organized.

Filter your allocations, logged time, time offs, projects & phases lists by a modified_since date or timestamp
Extract only what’s changed since the last time you ran a query. πŸ‘Œ

Automatically see the calculated start and end dates of all projects in the response from projects
Now you can easily view the length of your projects or use the data in other endpoints like /reports/projects to ensure you're capturing the full project duration.

Manage your project team members even after the project is created
This includes setting, adding, and deleting team members with their hourly rates. The syntax for this is available in the API docs.

Float's customer API is intended to make simple CRUD operations for schedule data easy and accessible. We're always looking for ways to improve and encourage you to join our Float community in Slack to let us know your feedback! We also require any teams using the Float API to add your technical contact details in the user-agent header so that we can keep you updated of any changes.

Centralize your people and projects in Float.
