Big Board is a tool that consolidates point-in-time events from collaborative work environments, chat services, calendars, and other apps into a single analytical display of cumulative activity. It can be used for project management, understanding team workflow, and as a launchpad for work. In order to connect custom applications, developers working in PHP can use the Big Board SDK to create a simple interface to the Big Board API. Installing with Composer is recommended for fluidity of use. The API is made accessible for Big Board users who obtain an access token after registering their custom application.
