Hi developer!

I am Aymeric the founder of WEEKPLAN.
I want WEEKPLAN to be usable from anywhere: web, mobiles, tablets, watches, glasses, etc… but I can’t do it all by myself.

I am opening WEEKPLAN’s API to everyone so that you can go on and create great apps on top of WEEKPLAN’s data and userbase.

The web version of WEEKPLAN is already using the API. I want to make the API more consistent and I want to document it so that it is easier to use. Read the API documentation.

If you are interested in developing some app that integrates with WEEKPLAN, contact me at [email protected], I want to help you! We will need to communicate often to get you sorted.

The current web app uses only the API, so much is possible, you just need to know how to speak with the API. The easiest way to do this at the moment is to look at the Chrome Developer Tools, in the Network tab, to see the requests made by the web app to the API.

I can also send you the javascript files that contact the API so that you can see how I integrate with the API.

Note that the API uses JSONP rather than REST for the API at the moment (in order to remove some pain with cross domain ajax requests).

I advice you to limit the scope of your first version to something very simple like (User Registration, User Login, Today List, New Task in Today List), something like that and once you publish this first version, you will start getting some users and that will motivate you to keep going 🙂

Shipping is the hardest part of a project at the beginning 🙂

    How exactly do I integrate Week Plan with my gmail or iCal? I’ve tried the link and gmail says it’s not a valid url.

    Also, iOS app?? Please 🙂

    • Hi Rob,

      For some reason, it seems the link you are providing to Google is missing the .ics at the end. Can you try adding the extension?

  • Whenever I log into weekplan, it goes to last week. This is useless. What happens in 3 months time, I’m not scrolling through weeks and weeks to get to the current week. I want an app that shows me this current week when I log on.

    • This is because your bookmark contains the date of last week. Try to bookmark https://app.weekplan.net instead.

        Thanks, The same happened to me.

    Hi @AymericG:disqus,
    I have a question: what if I want to import some data in the weekplan from another source (with back synchronization). Should I write a separate app and host it somewhere for that purpose or can I write an extension that will be available in weekplan?

    • Hi there, what is the external source you are trying to integrate with?

      • Sviatoslav Danylenko

        I use Trello and I love how it looks and works, but there is no calendar there… At the same time I love the calendar from Weekplan (I have registered here today 🙂 ). Moreover, I want to track my time and Toggl looks great for me.

        So my crazy idea is to try to put it all together to get the ideal tool for me:
        Trello – to collect tasks
        Weekplan for planing
        Toggl for tracking

        So I planning to import all tasks to weekplan and to arrange them there and to import them to Toggl too. The second thing is to create the additional button for each task in weekplan, to run the Tracker.

        BTW. The calendar of Asana looks also great, but the workflow and smoothness is not so good comparing to Weekplan. The one thing that I miss, comparing to Asana is that I can see only one week at a time, while there is still so much place on my screen below that one week.

        • > I use Trello and I love how it looks and works, but there is no calendar there

          I believe there is actually a calendar in Trello.

          > So my crazy idea is to try to put it all together to get the ideal tool for me

          One way of doing this is by using Zapier. WeekPlan can easily integrate with Trello and Toggl if you use our Zapier integration. Please note that it is part of the Pro plan.

            Ok, thank you very match

            > I believe there is actually a calendar in Trello.
            In Trello you can specify due date, but there is no ‘done’ state for tasks, because of it’s specificity. There is also no calendar view. You can only filter cards, that have due date, but they will stay in the lists without any sorting.

            P.S. Thank you for the grid view 🙂

          • The Calendar thingy is a “powerup” in Trello: http://gyazo.com/306727ad051f38b5c5a303be2e23e7ee

          • Sviatoslav Danylenko

            oh, thank you again!

    Hi, How do you add weekplan to iCal? I tried adding the URL in weekplan to iCAL and it’s not working. Even after adding .ics to the link. Appreciate any help!

  • Evelyn Frierson

    Something happened to my screen view when I accidentally hit a key or something and the view went to a rather large layout AND I lost the grid option to view Week Plan. Now it’s all stacked and I would rather it be at a glance for the entire week. How can I get back to that view? I don’t see how to do it anywhere. Thank you!

    • You should click on the Week tab on the top right. And make sure you are in the Grid view mode.

      • Evelyn Frierson

        Please tell me what area you are referencing. This is what I see…

        • I see, you are in mobile view because the width of your window is too narrow. What device are you using?

          • Evelyn Frierson

            I’m on HP laptop with 15″ screen.

          • Mmm are you zoomed in maybe? it is strange… Is the window maximized?

    This is a great app!!! but you need something like: TalkToUs or GetSatisfaction so people can report problems (and bugs) and wish requests and see what you are planning next. There are some open source free plugins that you can easily add to your website like https://www.eldos.com/vp/wishlist.php#product VoxPuli … that will do that.

    BTW some problems I encountered:
    1. I got an error message when signing up, but when hit the back button all’s ok.
    2. The time setting updown widget only moves the time up, even if I hit the down button.
    3. Wish: Track time – automatically checks for existing project and client into toggl and opens embedded toggl button inside. Once stopped, brings the time back from toggl.
