How API Food Data can Cause Brands to Reimagine Operational Efficiency
August 10, 2021
API Automation Will Destroy Efficiency Bottlenecks from Manual Tasks
Every software has integrations that send data back and forth between small pairings of tools and apps. While these pre-built connections can save time if you use them exactly as designed, they rarely are created with wild flexibility needed by food businesses in mind.
For example, your food costing software might offer an EDI connection to vendors. Very handy. But to integrate recipe costs with your menu planning excel sheet? That’ll take a custom-built connection from a dev team, because that EDI connection doesn’t include an option to send data anywhere but the food costing software. Want to connect the nutritional tracking software too? That’s another custom connection (or two).
Dev teams call this process of creating endless connections—and maintaining them when they fail—“throwaway work” for good reason.
Open APIs make each data item accessible on a granular level. Any developer can quickly call the API, select the specific data item, and place it in any spreadsheet or software that also uses an Open API.
There’s no complicated custom connections, no manual data entry from one platform to the other. Just a seamless, automatic flow of information from any two points that’s far less likely to cause future headaches than pre-built integrations.

What’s a Rich Text element?
The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
Static and dynamic content editing
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
How to customize formatting for each rich text
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
