Choose a Front Desk API

After registering you now have access to use both Core API and Reporting API.

Core API allows apps to perform business processes. Creating a client, retrieving their custom fields, and checking them into a class are examples of what's possible with this Front Desk API.

Reporting API allows apps to retrieve and aggregate business data at business and franchise levels. Aggregating revenue by quarter, retrieving every piece of merchandise ever sold by a certain staff member, or finding the client who has contributed the highest revenue to a business are examples of what's possible with this Front Desk API.


Use the Core API and Reporting API documentation to explore all that is available from each Front Desk API. Check out the Authentication section to learn about our OAuth2 flow.
