Has anyone tried a way of getting outside data into Quickbase via REST or SOAP?

We'd like customers to zap orders directly to our company via an API.
What success have people had with either SOAP and XML or even JSON and REST.
My background is SQL so nothing of this stuff.

This is very much possible with Quick Base HTTP API Calls. You could build them a website that uses these calls to add/edit data in QuickBase using the Everyone on the Internet role. You could use ROR (like I did for FLRA) or any other language's sdk for Quick Base (python, JS, .NET and so on)

Hi Jack,

Surya is right Quick Base does have an API Guide that goes over the available API calls and some example requests that use HTML and XML and they might be a good starting place if you are looking into options for pulling outside data into integration. You can find that guide here. I hope this information is helpful.

Thanks all, still getting to grips with this thing, would JSON and REST work with this application?  has anyone tried that?  (I know QB is very XML orientated?).
