I have just started using Zoho for a client of mine and so far I really like the way it handles CRM content. I now need to implement a CRM API to grab a single form field from a PHPList entry form and get it into the CRM.
I would like to accomplish two things here:
- Grab single form field data (email) and get it into Zoho CRM
- Make sure I can use a 2nd action to also get the same entry to the local database.
Pretty sure I need AJAX for the second part right?
I am looking at https://www.zoho.com/crm/help/api/insertrecords.html
but am not really sure where to start this. Where can I get a step by step or some basic information to do exactly what I need to do?
I see the request URL data https://crm.zoho.com/crm/private/xml/Leads/insertRecords?authtoken=Auth Token&scope=crmapi&xmlData=Your XML Data
What is "Your XML Data" supposed to be? Is this an XML sheet that I am supposed to create and store somewhere or is this automatically created when the form is submitted? I tend to overthink sometimes so any push in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.
Any and all help is greatly appreciated...
