Use SlapFive API to integrate with other apps

You’ve captured all this great customer voice content in SlapFive, now you want to integrate with other applications to pass content into SlapFive, pull SlapFive content out, or trigger workflows. We’ve got you covered. SlapFive has a set of simple but powerful APIs that enable this integration with just about any app you can think of. This article gives you some ideas for the types of integration use cases that are possible, and explains how to use the APIs.

Ideas for what you can do with these API endpoints

  • Your website developers can access SlapFive customer voice content and have total control over how it is presented on your site.
  • You can export your Stories and Boards to a spreadsheet.
  • You can create front-end forms that your customers can use to join your Customer Voice program and have that form data create new Customer records in SlapFive.
  • You can synchronize customer records between SlapFive and your marketing automation platform or CRM.
  • You can work with SaaS integration platforms like Zapier to build triggers and actions.

Authentication

When making requests to any SlapFive API, you must include “api-authorization” as a key in the HTTP header, with your API Key as the value. To find or generate your API Key, go to your Admin menu and click the “(Your Company Name) Client Settings” menu, and scroll down to the API Keys section, where you can copy and paste the value that appears, or generate a new one.
