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

API V2 help creating or updating fields

I am evaluating Wild Apricot for a small non-profit. We are all volunteers who will be administering it, so I am investigating using the API to automate our workflow due to the fact that WA does not create a Contact for Guest registrations.

My question is related to the Create Contact or Update Contact operations. I can create a contact with the FirstName, LastName and Email fields and I can update those fields. However, I have been unsuccessful adding or creating additional fields, even the Phone built in field.

Can anyone help by sending me an example of the syntax for the submission? I started with the Google Sheets example on the WA website. It has been easy to use when I understand the correct syntax! That's what I need here.

This is a showstopper to us moving to Wild Apricot if we cannot automate this. It looks like it should be easy to do if I get the correct syntax.

BTW, for the most part, thew documentation is very good. I guess because the API is not supported is why there are limited examples. As read elsewhere in this forum, I agree that it may be shortsighted for WS to not support the API. It does help embed customers to their platform...

Any help is greatly appreciated.
Thanks.
