New Traction Tools API Gives the Automation You Asked For

Apr 12, 2018

You spoke, and we listened. We work hard to streamline your To-Dos, but there’s always room for improvement, and we’re up to the challenge. 

The biggest inefficiency in Traction® Tools is the manual data entry component. To-Dos and Rocks need to be typed into your project management system. Your metrics need to be entered into the Scorecard™. People Headline information needs to be typed into the Level 10 Meeting™ Agenda. It’s all the manual work opens the door for human error, resulting in inefficiencies.

But not anymore! Traction Tools is excited to introduce our new API. Now, with the help of a programmer, you can automatically share data between Traction Tools and your other systems.

Note: Since this blog’s publication, we’ve partnered with Zapier to make software integration even easier. Learn more about how to link Traction Tools with all your favorite platforms.

Do more with the Traction Tools API

You’re already tracking financial data in your Scorecard. Wouldn’t it be great to import your that data directly from Quickbooks? It’s one less thing to do, and one less chance for human error and misreporting.

With our API, you can boost your project management by automatically importing To-Dos into applications like Asana or Teamwork. What else could you do with the API? Here’s a few ideas:

  • Import key CRM data into the Scorecard.
  • Send Traction Tools data for analysis to Databox.
  • Push To-Dos to a specific channel in Slack.
  • Add Issues to Trello.
  • Import headlines from Google Docs.
  • Add To-Do deadlines to your calendar.

You can even use the Traction Tools API to create Level 10 Meetings! Once you add the users within Traction Tools, you can import all of the other data from external sources and create a Level 10 Meeting. Just post all of the information for each agenda item—Headlines, Scorecard data, Rock information, To-Dos and Issues—then add the users to the meeting you’ve created.

Get ready to save time and get even more out of your EOS® journey. If you have a developer who can program the API for you, your data can automatically be updated in the Traction Tools Scorecard in real-time!

Each item has several actions you can command, such as getting information, updating information, creating a new entry or adding a user.

What do you need?

Just contact your developer to get started! Traction Tools can connect with any other software platform that has its own API, meaning the possibilities are virtually endless!
