  • Creating new review steps and automatically inviting stakeholders based on email addresses stored in another system

Generate your unique API key

Customers can generate their own API key through the team tab. Each team member can have multiple API keys. To generate a new API key, follow these steps:

  1. Open your API tab

    • Click on your Team settings and then open the API tab.

  2. Click on the Generate API key button

  3. Save your API key

    • Once your API key is copied and saved somewhere secure, you can click the Yes, I have saved my keys button and exit.

⚠️Please note: Due to security reasons, this API key will not be displayed again. Please make sure you store it somewhere safe. Otherwise, you will have to generate a new key if you lose it.
