How can we make it easier for you to develop on top of Wild Apricot?

Is it correct that users cannot get their membership data via API?

I'm working with a tool called Cognito Forms that allow some fairly complex form functionality. One great feature is the ability to pass values to a form embedded on a Wild Apricot page.

We are currently working on a feature where a member navigates to a member-only page for expense reimbursement. The page loads an embedded form and pre-fills most of the information.

Right now, I am using the API to use the contacts/me call to load name and email, but I need the contact/{contact-ID} to get the address and phone.

After getting the script completed and pre-populating the form for my admin account, I found that this API call doesn't work for non-admins. After some digging, I found this thread: https://forums.wildapricot.com/forums/309658-developers/suggestions/18163003-fieldvalues-contact-api

I'm receiving the same error as above: "Current token does not provide access to scope 'contacts_view'.

Is this really true that a contact can't pull their own information via API? Not even their address? All of this JS is occurring within WA pages.
