We are always looking for new ways to extend our project tools with other productivity apps, and we recently launched our new API to support teams who want to build custom integrations with our tools. Now that we have partnered with Zapier, we are pleased to offer our customers the opportunity to connect with over 400 apps without the need for programming or code.
Zapier offers a simple way for two apps to connect, and you don’t need a developer. You can connect ProjectManager.com with other tools you use across the organization simply by creating “Zaps”, a set of triggers and actions that connect tasks, resources, documents, timesheet data with supporting actions in more than 400 other tools like Gmail, Salesforce, Quickbooks, Google Drive, Evernote and more.
