People HR API story

Are you a developer who uses the People HR API? Have you built any cool integrations that connect your HR software with your other business applications? If so, you’ll be pleased to know that on the 27th July, we’re releasing a brand new set of API calls for you to tinker with. This means you’ll be able to build a ton of new integrations that were previously impossible!

To celebrate the release of these new API calls, we’re offering every single customer who uses our API a free t-shirt. All you have to do is share your integration story with us, and we’ll send you a funny developer t-shirt to say thanks.

But first, let’s look at what’s around the corner for the People HR API.

New People HR API calls arriving with the Summer Release

With our next release, you’ll be able to use our API to pull information from the following areas of the People HR system:

Logbook screens. This will include custom screens your company creates, as well as the system’s default screens.

Late records


ATS documents. This will apply to any document uploaded by a candidate as part of their application process

We’re also working on a more user-friendly interface to help you navigate the API more easily. But for now, let’s take a look at how you can claim up to three free t-shirts for you and your team!

How to claim up to THREE FREE T-SHIRTS for your development team

So, we want to hear how you’re using our API. Maybe you’ve built a small but powerful integration that looks a bit dull, but carries massive operational impact. Or maybe you’ve embarked on a complex, colourful project that has all the bells and whistles. Whatever it is, there’s a free t-shirt with your name on it (literally, if you like) – all you have to do is share your People HR integration story.

To do this, send an email to, and tell us what you’ve done:

  1. A simple description earns you ONE free t-shirt
  2. A description with screenshots earns you TWO free t-shirts
  3.    Send a full-blown video documentary, and we’ll send you THREE free t-shirts!

It’s up to you what your t-shirt will say. You can send us your favourite developer-themed joke, and we’ll get it printed. Or, you can ask us to write you our own witty surprise. Our only requirement is that you let us share your story with other customers, to help inspire them to get creative with our API.

Interested in exploring People HR integrations?

If you’re interested in exploring our API, then get in touch with your account manager – we’ll be happy to help you explore our technical documentation.

But even if you haven’t built anything with our API yourself yet, chances are you’re probably already using one of our existing integrations! For example:

  • Perhaps you’re automatically loading payslips into People® using our Sage integration?
  • Indeed/Glassdoor. Maybe your vacancies are instantly shared to popular 3rd-party jobsites we partner with?
  • Microsoft Word. Are you mail merging your documents with our Microsoft Word integration?

Plus there are loads of easy ways to connect People HR with your other business apps, using our popular Zapier integration – for example, this is how you use Zapier to connect People® with WebMerge to auto-generate employee contracts when you add new starters.
