Announcing the Zoho Projects API

Announcing the Zoho Projects API

Today we're excited to announce the API for Zoho Projects where any developer can extend the project management and collaboration capabilities through our APIs and can build their own customized applications for their business needs.


We've tried to make the API follow the REST (Representational State Transfer) principles
and generate a XML/ JSON object which allows you to access / read / write Zoho Projects data from third-party systems like Google/Yahoo gadgets, web sites, billing & invoicing systems, other web-based products and do much more.

For more information about this API, please visit our Zoho Projects API Documentation

Typically this opens up a new chapter for Zoho Projects, and it’s just a start. Zoho Projects API is new and primarily for developers whose imagination is the limit. With this you will be able to build a customized CRM system with Projects, billing systems, document management, time tracking tools and other web-based products.

In coming weeks, we’ll continue to post example uses and implementations for everyone to check out.

We hope you will join us to share your ideas, tips and tricks with other developers in the API community here.

    • Have you moved to REST API?

      Dear API Users, The Documentation of our Rest API is available here . All future development will be done to this version. We are deprecating the older API today. Its documentation will no longer be available and we will also be stopping the calls to this API soon. Thanks, Prasanna
