A new REST API with a dedicated customers site and support community launches today
A robust ecosystem of Mobile Workforce Management Apps to improve the field team productivity depends on customers’ ability to to get the most out of the data obtained during the workday and incorporate them into their internal processes. This is why I’m excited to announce that we have released our new WDS RESTful API, available today. We developed this API in order to offer customers a modern, easy-to-use integration method that allows for more flexibility and scalability, and increases application performance.
The feedback on this API from our customers who are participating in our beta program has been enthusiastic, especially for the clear and complete documentation we’ve provided that makes it easy to work with this API. The beta participants have written custom integrations between Working Day Suite and other applications to do some really exciting things. So far, our customers have created integrations to get Tracker locations, Forms reports, Schedule Task for Planners and Get Orders details on-the-go.

So how do you get started? Read on.
Do I have access to the WDS REST API?
If you have access to the Working Day Suite product you can get access to the WDS REST API. You do not need to download anything new. You can go to Configuration-Enable REST API and automatically will set up access for your account.
Are there any additional costs for using the REST API?
No. If you have a subscription to Working Day Suite you can access the REST API. It’s possible that in time we may institute rate limits. We’ll monitor usage and keep the community informed of any changes.
Where can I read more about the REST API?
The REST API is fully documented with features, end points and data types, and you can access this information on our WDS REST API Documentation site.
Is there a Internalia Group GitHub account where I can find examples of how other developers have utilized the Working Day Suite REST API?
There is! We have a repository specifically for developing with our WDS REST API at the Internalia Group Software GitHub account.
Who do I reach out to if I have questions?
Please use our WDS REST API at the Internalia Group Software GitHub site. (Registration is required, though the site is open to anyone.) There you can read feedback from the developers who built applications for the WDS REST APIThere you can read feedback from the developers who built applications for the WDS REST API, interact with the Internalia Group WDS product managers and engineers who developed the API, and post your own questions and feedback.
As excited as we are about this launch, we’re just getting started. We will continue to add functionality to this WDS REST API based on feedback from the customers community, and we hope your team will join us in building new and awesome things with Working Day Suite.
We’re curious: Do you have an idea for an integration with Working Day Suite that you’ve wanted to build? Tell us about it in the comments!
