Advanced Reporting with the API

Are there any plans to open up advanced reporting within the API? It would be great to be able make use of the definition and output of an advanced report that a user has set up? 

I would want to be able to allow the user to select from the list of advanced reports that they have set up (or the shared ones). The application would be able to run the report, examine the headers and retrieve the results.

(That would be my ideal)

    David,

    Thanks for the suggestion. We just released the version 2.2 API. I was thinking it would be nice to provide a JSON view of the reports that have been generated. Is that what you are looking for?

    Thanks,

  • When you say produce a json view of the report, this may work as long as it is also possible to allow the user to select which report they would like to see and secondly, be able to determine the field headers for the report too. For my purposes I would not need to see the criteria.

  • Hi David,

    Thanks again for the suggestion. We're still working on the reports themselves in response to user feedback, so once those are finalized, we'll look at how we can incorporate them into the api.

    Thanks again for the feedback.

  • I was just wondering if this had progressed at all. We have some great ideas but it would really require the user to be able to set up an advanced report to capture a population of contacts and their output field values for it to work.
