Step 2: Create an API app in Classy to connect to Kindful 

You may be asking, "Why do I need to create an app in Classy to connect to Kindful?" In Step 1, you can see how the Classy App Settings in Kindful require you to enter a Client ID and a Client Secret. The way to access both of these is by creating an API app in Classy. 

To get started creating an API app in Classy, you'll need to have access to Classy's API. Not sure if you have access? Find out here

Head to your API + Apps section in your Classy admin account, and click on "Classy API."

You'll be directed to an area where you can create an app, and you'll be asked to 1) name your app, and 2) enter your Oauth Redirect URI.

You can name your app whatever you'd like! Anything that helps you remember that this is how Kindful communicates with Classy will work. 

Your Kindful URI is in your Classy App Settings (from step 1). It's also included below for your convenience.

Oauth Redirect URI = https://classy.kindfulapp.com/auth/classy/callback

You'll also need to find your Classy Organization ID. To find this, head over to your Classy Admin profile, and look in the URL bar in your browser. 

The series of numbers after "/admin" in your Classy Admin profile is your Organization ID. Copy + paste this ID into your Classy App Settings in Kindful.
