Client Level API Secret and REST API Info

SwipeClock has both an Accountant Level API and Client Level API. This article explains how to generate and view  the Client level API as well as provide information about accessing our developer site.

SwipeClock's REST API allows for clients to create their own API calls to TimeWorksPlus.
