An API which allows other tools to access Freedcamp project data
When activated, the application could open up a Web Services API (perhaps REST-based) which allows information about projects and other data within freedcamp to be polled by external applications for reporting, and in order to better integrate with third-party applications.
It is launched and available on all plans including the Free plan.
Missing some API calls? Please post here in comments.

+1 Zapier or API, would be very helpful for managing workflow!
No API is a dealbreaker. I can't automate workflow without it- and if I can't automate workflow, I can't use this system (which sucks because it seems to have everything I need).
Hi Igor. With a general API we can also connect Freedcamp to IFTTT (https://ifttt.com/).
I just want to clarify. Zapier free is only:
Zaps run every 15 Minutes
so you will get 100 updates per month until you pay Zapier.
My question for people asking for Zapier integration. Are you aware of this and do you have or willing to pay Zapier to get > 100 updates a month?
+1 for Zapier integration!
+1 an API not only to poll information from but also to post to. I would like to integrate freedcamp with my ChatOps system and allow my coworkers to mark tasks as completed right from the chat!
Any movement on this? I'm definitely interested in an API and would pay for access to, specifically: projects/todos and issue tracking. Also Zapier integration (which someone already mentioned) would be of great benefit.
One more "Ping".
It would be awesome if people could integrate their solutions with freedcamp.
For example I would like to create my custom web form and create leads directly to freedcamp CRM. Synchronize contacts with google or outlook contacts.
Or integrate with other systems through zapier.
Or even more, people would be able to write 3rd-party apps for smartphones.
Possibilities are really wide :)

Is this where to ping? I am looking for an API for freedcamp so I can continue using your amazing app with my application dashboard to track project progress, even full project information for system administrators for our app development team.
An integration with Zapier would be great. It opens up many, many possibilities for integrations with other programs.

I'd like to have an API access too. Use cases could be: time tracking widget, etc.
With Zapier every time that I move a card to my DONE board in Trello, it makes two things:
1) Write a highlight into my RescueTime account to remember what I have done today
2) Create an event in my Google Calendar to see the timeline of my done tasks in the day.
The idea with Trello is just for simplicity, but you can skip it while Freedcamp works well with Zapier.
Why would you push Freedcamp task to Trello card or Trello card to Freedcamp's task? It is sounds cool but how practical is it?
Another useful application of this it's to export Freedcamp Todo's to a Trello card through Zapier.

I'd also be interested into this.
Access to the CRM add-on. Creating, reading, updating records.

Yup -- APIs would be really cool to have. We could build custom widgets, you could also take open-source contributions with many widgets -- helps build ecosystem around freedcamp (like someone already said about Dropbox - similarly integrate with Git Hub or have local/central version).
