Payments via JSON WebHook and API (Torch Project Management)

Thursday, March 3rd, 2011

You can now retrieve payment entries from Torch Project Management's WebHook or API. Just set the variable "list" to "payments" (there is an example under your help section). This will result in something like:

"key": "13",
"timestamp": "2010-07-16 00:00:00",
"amount": "2050.000000",
"note": "Payment by Check",
"invoicename": "WebDesign Services",

from the WebHook. Or something like this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
<timestamp>2010-07-16 00:00:00</timestamp>
<note>Payment by Check</note>
<invoicename>WebDesign Services</invoicename>

from the API.

Because this is an update to the WebHook, this also means it will work with TorchCL. So, if you've ever wanted to automated entries into your ledger or more quickly create cash-flow statements, now it is just a command away.


The QuickSilver and LaunchBar integration scripts have been updated to recognize "payments" as an action. If you use either of these scripts, you should download the new version.

Early Changes to Torch as a Consequence of Survey Results

We heard you loud and clear! Torch Project Management users want better integration with accounting tools. We've just released a group of features to help remedy this:

  • Better Time Exporting
  • Unbilled Time Total
  • Invoice Data Exporting

Time, Better

Ok, there is now an indicator on the bottom of every time page showing the amount of unbilled time in that view (whether you're viewing a category or all time across the project):

You can also now export unbilled time separately from billed time. And if you need all the time across all active projects (projects that aren't archived), that's available as well:

Export Invoice Data

You can now export your invoice transactions in a number of ways:

Some of these are for the accounting types. Some are for everyone. Let us know what you think.

Please note, an invoice is not considered a transaction until it is sent to the customer. So invoices that haven't been sent yet will not show up in these exports.

We've looked at a lot of accounting software over the last week and we still haven't found that perfect app to integrate with. If you have any recommendations, please let us know.
