Sam,

It looks like you are building for the future. AWESOME.

How can I learn more about the API?

Also, I want to do some custom reporting (booking rate for example), and I need to join my inquiries with my quotes with my bookings (think sql). Unfortunately, the fields I would need to do a join aren't all available with the exported data.

Any recommendations on this? Is there a secret decoder ring to link the three tables together?

@Damon Thanks for your encouragement and interest in the API. At the moment, we're only allowing integration partners to access for upcoming partnerships we're working on. I will flag your name as an early adopter and be in touch when I can. We have another release coming up for Friday. I have asked that more fields be added to the booking, quote and inquiry exports, and that it go out in this release. ~Sam
