API for data access
Hi there, I have been assigned the project of looking at volunteer hours data. I've been learning some Python scripting to do that so it's fun. I can manually download the CSV, and I have been looking into scraping off of the OurVolts site, but it would also be nice to have a nice API with which someone in my position could just grab it without having to simulate filling out and submitting forms.
Also, some of the stuff they want me to do could be directly integrated into OurVolts. That includes the option to look at weekly totals of volunteer hours (workers are required to do 5hrs/week), and maybe weekly email notifications to people of their hours worked and/or congratulations for doing their weekly quota.
I'd love to talk about this stuff with you in person if you come around. I'm at the Oakland Impact HUB a few times a week, mostly Tuesdays and Thursdays.
I reviewed this Efrem, and we found a way to accomplish this goal with the Milestones
